Sunday 23rd September 2-5pm
at Brighton Natural Health Centre
with Ginny Haswell and Jeremy Marshall
The word ‘mindfulness’ is used a lot nowadays. To have your mind full of what, exactly? Mindfulness is the practice of being completely present in each moment; to observe all that arises without emotional response or judgement. The more present we are with our mind the more we can learn from whatever activity we engage in.
Jeremy will invite you to hone in on your concentration with awareness of movement and breath in Qi Gong practice, interspersed with moments of stillness, so that the mind becomes quiet and realisations naturally arise from an intuitive rather than a judgemental place.
During the longer, timed holds of postures in Yin Yoga, Ginny will prompt a journey of self enquiry. When mental or physical discomforts arise, do we daydream to take our minds outside of the experience? Or perhaps we feel a strong urge to change what is – to fidget or to give up and come out of the pose early. By observing these aversions and cravings, we can gain insights into our tendencies and habitual reactions in life.
With regular practice, mindfulness permeates our daily lives and we may free ourselves from habits and behaviours that no longer serve us.
