In challenging times, the need for connecting comes to the foreground. Maybe life is still unfolding in its usual way for you, or maybe you’re feeling worried, ill or isolated as a result of the pandemic that is making itself felt across the world.
We at the Mindfulness Association were wondering if and how we could contribute and support during the coming curve of disruption that we may find ourselves in, and felt that a daily moment of connecting might be good medicine.
So for the next while, we’re offering daily online guided meditations lead by one of our tutors from 10:30-10.50 am Monday to Friday and every day at 7-7.30pm, followed by the opportunity to have a chat over a cuppa together.
Do join us, any or every day for a nourishing practice and the sense of connection and togetherness, whatever else is happening!

Daily Sit Mindfulness Practice Sessions

With Mindfulness Association Tutors

Please note these Mindfulness practice sessions are not a treatment for mental health problems or addiction, however mindfulness is proven to be beneficial for mental health and wellbeing in the right circumstances. If you have recently received or are currently receiving treatment from a psychiatrist, psychotherapist or counsellor for an ongoing mental health problem, we strongly advise that you obtain advice from your mental health professional before proceeding further with these practice sessions at this time.  Also, if you have recently or are currently going through a traumatic life event such as a separation from a long term partner, the death of a close family member or friend or redundancy this may not be the best time for you to continue with these practice sessions.  This very much depends on your current psychological health and the support networks that you have around you, such as friends, family and mental health professionals.  For anyone withdrawing from the practice sessions for these reasons, the option is available to you to join again in the future.

 

If you are currently taking medication for a mental health condition, then we recommend that you do not change your medication, other than in close collaboration with your medication prescriber.

 

If any of these circumstances apply to you, then we recommend, that if you have not done so already, you contact one of our tutors to discuss your situation and the support networks you have in place and to explore how best to proceed with your mindfulness practice.

 

The Mindfulness Association is an inclusive organisation and we welcome people of all ages, genders (including gender identification), sexual orientation, abilities, race (including colour, nationality, and ethnic or national origin) and religion or belief. Please contact Kristine on kristine.m.janson@gmail.com if you do experience any feelings of exclusion during the practice sessions.
