What we'll do
Sindhu will be Hosting with Sajhu-Paul leading a MINDFULNESS meditation.
Mindfulness is an ancient, present-moment, focusing and awareness technique which can greatly assist us in our everyday mental, physical and spiritual lives.
The benefits of regular Mindfulness Meditation practice in everyday life are many including: resiliency to stress, improved relationships, sharper attention, more flexible mental ability, improved coping skills, better persistence, more compassion and better life choices.
Suitable for any level of experience, over the course of several weeks you will be guided through a simple, step by step process of mindfulness meditation. At each meeting the prior steps are reviewed and a new step or practice is introduced or reviewed then practised together. This usually takes the form of several short, mostly silent meditations with occasional guidance.
Meditators of all levels of experience often have trouble finding an appropriate technique for themselves and then persisting with the consistent practice of the one they choose. Sajhu's aim is to provide a regular free, safe, helpful space to practice simple processes that will assist you to embed a regular, effective meditation practice in your daily life.
Although informed by many teachers from many traditions, the practices taught do not require you to engage in any religious or cultish group practices or commitments including financial.
