Mindfulness Support Community
The aim of the weekly group sessions is to support you in developing mindfulness, wellbeing & ways of living consciously & sustainably. Mindfulness can help you reduce stress & anxiety, cultivate a clear & calm presence & develop mind body connection with self, others & nature.
Mindfulness can help you with relaxing your body, letting go of unhelpful thoughts & sensing into your natural awareness. Interpersonal mindfulness can help you develop kind & compassionate relationships.
Through mindfulness we can become more aware & intentional about our relationship with self, others & the natural world. Join us in learning mindfulness, practicing mindfulness meditation, contributing to kind conversations on living sustainably in a community of diverse people.
You must register on the website prior to the session. We meet every fortnight live online at 1pm on Tuesday during the Victorian School Term. This session is inclusive & everyone is welcome to join us.
What is Mindfulness & Meditation?
Mindfulness is remembering our natural capacity to be present & aware of our inner experience & how we are relating to ourselves, each other, nature & the outside world. Mindfulness is characterised by equanimity, compassion & wisdom & including the absence of being overly reactive to what is going on around us.
Mindfulness meditation is the formal practice of focusing attention and expanding awareness with curiosity & non-judgment. It involve learning formal systematic meditations & informally 'checking in', developing skills & cultivating attitudes that help connect mind, body & emotions & give rise to insight. Meditation is a microcosm for how you live your life.
Mindfulness is often practiced with intention of cultivating self-understanding, acceptance, compassion & wisdom. Mindfulness research has found mindfulness meditation can reduce stress, anxiety, depression & pain. It can also help develop your resources for resilience, creativity & living an authentic, conscious & more sustainable life.
How Does the Mindfulness Support Group Work?
The online mindfulness support group will run for one hour on Zoom during the Victorian school term. The session will involve a small talk on the theme & settling into mindfulness meditation. Following on from practice you can participate in a facilitated sharing & reflecting on experience & exploring the theme related to the mindfulness, wellbeing or an aspect of slow living.
