Mindfulness and Meditation 8 week course – beginners welcome

You are warmly invited to come to a eight week (ie 8 Tuesday evenings) course for anyone wanting to learn how to meditate and live their lives more mindfully.

All are welcome including total beginners, people who know nothing about meditation or mindfulness, as well as seasoned meditators.

The mindfulness section of the course is based on the excellent book “Life with Full Attention” by Maitreyabandhu, and you would need to buy that (eg https://www.amazon.co.uk/Life-Full-Attention-Practical-Mindfulness/dp/1899579982/ref=sr_1_1? ). The cost is £11.99.

There is no charge for the course itself. But we do invite people to make a donation towards our costs, so that we can carry on with what we do. Your donation could be any amount, but the suggested amount is £5 per evening.

Many people have found these courses extremely useful and have made massive shifts in their life from them (if they carry on practising and attending after the course).

People report these shifts especially in areas such as more happiness, less anxiety and less negative emotions. The general goal is to be more content, more mindful, have more loving kindness, joy, connection and ultimately more freedom from our reactive mind.

Repetition is important because there are different levels of depth, experience and understanding. If you have been before you will build on what you have learned and be able to go a bit deeper this time, so it is also suitable for experienced meditators.

If you want more information about the styles of meditation we teach you can go to http://hertfordbuddhistgroup.co.uk/meditation/ where there are also links to downloadable mp3s that can guide you while you meditate, as well as youtube videos etc.

It’s fine if you can’t manage to come to every week, each one can be enjoyed independently so just come along and drop into any that you can make. Although like anything, the more you put into it, and the more you attend, the more you will get out of it.

The classes will be very friendly, welcoming and a lot of fun. There will be a tea and biscuit break halfway through, so there will be a lot of opportunity to make new friends, and to catch up with old ones.

The course is held at our usual venue of the Millbridge Rooms (opposite Hertford Theatre). See the link below for a screenshot of our front door, and recommended car parks:

8 Tuesday evenings starting 14th January 2020 .

It is best to get there between 7.00 pm and 7.15pm, as we start shortly after that. Each class will finish at 9.45pm.

There is no need to bring anything apart from an open mind and willingness to explore your experience. We have lots of chairs and some cushions. However if you want to bring any cushions, mats, stools etc from home you are very welcome.

If you cannot come to this course, you can also come any Tuesday throughout the year as we always warmly welcome any newcomers and beginners, and give full instruction. Every Tuesday evening is run as a drop in class.

If you have any questions, please leave a message below, or alternatively direct message me on Facebook .

Hope to see you at the course 🙂
