Beginners Meditation Course
with Natalie Snooke
Next Course Starts: Thursday 22 February 2018
This course will support you to develop your own mindfulness meditation practice and to experience a more centred, calm and understanding approach to yourself and everyday life.
Meditation trains us to be mindfully present in each moment with awareness, so that we can live more fully, with a clear mind and open heart.
Mindfulness is about having a conscious yet relaxed attention to notice what's going on moment to moment, without judgment. When you're mindful, you are more at ease with yourself, with others and with whatever is happening around you. And over time, life becomes less stressful, more enjoyable and more fulfilling.
Anyone, regardless of how skeptical or busy their mind is, can learn how to become more present to themselves through the practice of meditation. If you can breathe, you can meditate!
"Your Beginners Meditation Course increased my emotional resilience, increased my ability to let go and sharpened my focus and resolve. It was a beautiful experience and well worth it! Natalie is a kind, gentle and generous person and made time to listen to each of us fully. Thank you so much." Tessa Dowd
