Sunday mindfulness practice - Jesmond Library

Needs a location

Weekly Mindfulness meditation drop-in and discussion group featuring a selection of meditations including walking meditation, body scan, kindness meditation, breathing meditation and more.

Donation basis with suggested donation of £3-£7.

This mindfulness meditation drop-in class is aimed at supporting the development of personal meditation practice. The class can be used as a support to existing practice, a starting point your journey or an opportunity to explore whether meditation is right for you at this time.

Mindfulness is a practice to help people understand, tolerate, and deal with their emotions in healthy ways. Furthermore, it helps us to alter our habitual responses by taking pause and choosing how we act. When we are mindful, we experience our life as we live it, moment by moment. Mindfulness brings balance to our experience, as we engage all of our five senses. Through mindfully eating we taste the food we are eating and appreciate it more. We recognize the thoughts we are having and develop skills to manage them more effectively. Consequently, we learn how our minds work, and we are better able to label the thoughts and feelings we are having, instead of allowing them to overpower us and dictate our behavior.

In addition, mindfulness has been shown to have a positive effect on our physical health. Research has shown that regular meditation strengthens the immune system and increases connections in the brain.

Needs a location

Mindful Movement

Needs a location

Mindful movement offers a different way to become present and calm the mind. Movement based meditation can help reduce stress and tension. By bringing your awareness and attention to felt sensations, you can start to reconnect body and mind. If you have struggled with formal sitting meditation or want to bring an additional element to your practice, come along and discover the joy of movement. Mindful movements are often based on tai Chi and Yoga practices.
Each week there will be guided sequences of mindful movement. Mindful movements are low intensity and suitable for all. There will be a selection of movements every week which will include standing, sitting and lying down as well as mindful walking.
Donation based – suggested donation £3- £5 per session
