This weekend will integrate the essential components for stepping into Mindfulness¬†practice through enhancing our creative potential.¬† During the weekend we will incorporate¬†both sitting practices as well as taking Mindfulness off the cushion, leaning into the nitty¬†gritty reality of our day-to-day lives.
It is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced Mindfulness practitioners wishing to¬†extend their mindful creative potential.¬†Mindfulness and creativity can be regarded as a¬†stand-alone training or as a way to join the ‚ÄėMindfulness Level 1 ‚Äď Being Present‚Äô training for¬†weekends 2-4.¬†
We will explore what Mindfulness means for us and how our mindful awareness enables an¬†increased connectivity with those around us enriching our day to day experience.¬† The¬†ground to our practice may be prepared through the use of art materials, breath,¬†movement and the resonance of voice.¬†
Through the creative medium and a heightened¬†spatial awareness, each moment of our daily life and mindful practice can be further¬†enhanced through creating the ritual space in which the depth of our intention and¬†motivation can arise.¬†We set out to follow the golden thread of what calls to us to explore our relationship¬†between our life experience and our inner environment.
Times:¬†The weekend begins at 7pm (evening meal at 6pm) on the Friday evening, between 8am and 8pm on Saturday and between 8am and 3.30pm on a Sunday. It is expected that course participants will stay until the end of the training (3.30pm) on the Sunday.
