For people who already have mindfulness meditation experience.
Ongoing secular opportunities (see below) to gather with others in Sheffield and meditate together. A chance to enrich or rekindle your practice. Facilitated by an experienced mindfulness teacher.
There will be about one mindfulness continuation activity per quarter. Events listed below in calendar-order. This page will be updated on an ongoing basis, so keep your eyes peeled here for any future sessions.
Weds 6 Dec 2017 Sitting Group
Suitable for anyone with a pre-existing mindfulness meditation practice. A chance to maintain and deepen your practice or to rekindle it if you have fallen away from it. This is a secular sitting group.
The format will be roughly as follows…
After an initial sit, at the beginning there will be a chance to discuss your meditation practice and how it is to live mindfully. There will be a short talk and possible conversation on a teaching point related to mindfulness, meditation or living mindfully. Then there will be an extended period of meditations, thus allowing you to cultivate presence for a longer period perhaps than your home practice. This extended period of meditations may be interspersed with poems or stories that relate to mindfulness.
Please note – this sitting group is not suitable for beginners. If you are a beginner and would like to learn mindfulness meditation, Tall Spaghetti’s MBSR course is exactly for this purpose.
7pm to 9pm
If you have your own meditation equipment (zafus, stools etc) that you would like to use, then please bring them along. It is of course fine to meditate sitting on a chair. It is best to wear comfortable clothing for meditation and bring anything else that would help you to be comfortable, eg warm socks, a cushion.
