An introduction to Mindfulness Meditation
Workshop | YCN Library — For our members and programme participants

This bite-sized session will focus on introducing the technique and benefits of Mindfulness Meditation practice, in relation to our life and work

In recent years the practice of Mindfulness Meditation has become ever-popular as research shows the wide reaching benefits and it's impact on our sense of stability, clarity and strength of mind. 

Mindfulnesses increasing appeal has seen an abundance of products emerge for its practice, from mindful apps to expensive retreats. Bit in fact all we need is what we already have — our breath, body and mind.

This session will very practically demonstrate that, and equip you with practical techniques to take away, share and a apply — along with an appreciation of the positive impact of making the use of them part of your everyday life.

What we'll cover: 

• What Mindfulness meditation is, and what isn’t
• The simple technique for Mindfulness meditation including posture, breathing and duration
• The difference between formal and informal practice
• Tools for regular practice
• Useful journalling exercises

How the session will be structured: 

We will explore some theory and techniques, share experiences and work throiugh some very practicasl exercises. The practice, although rooted in Buddhism, will be taught in a secular way, open to all and with a non-dogmatic approach. 

Who the session's for: 

Anyone who is curious about Mindfulness and the benefits it could have for their life and work. Or indeed those with an existing interest or practice who would like the support of a group environment or to clarify aims and try out techniques together.
