      Mindfulness Meditation

      Come join our weekly group mindfulness meditation classes, starting 18 November at 7.30pm! What is mindfulness? In its simplest form, mindfulness means awareness - and particularly awareness of the present moment. We use of a set of techniques to train the mind to focus on the now through breathing, mental imagery, self-awareness and relaxation. What are the benefits? Regular practice reduces stress and anxiety, improves heart conditions, lowers blood pressure and improves sleep. It also increases the brain's ability to repair itself and grow new neural connections. Mindfulness helps gain greater self-awareness and generally helps people feel more positive about themselves and life in general. How can mindfulness help me at work? Practicing it at work can help to reduce stress, anxiety and conflict by increasing resilience and emotional intelligence. This can translate to improvement in communication which would in turn make a difference in productivity. In addition, people who practice mindfulness have an increased ability to focus on the work at hand along with an increased capacity for memory and decreased tendency to go on ‘autopilot’ or ‘zone out’ at meetings. How much is it? The classes are on donation basis: suggested donation is minimum £5 (plus admin fees if paying online) or £5 in person. If not paying online, please let me know you are coming for logistics - or check if it's going ahead as I have a minimum attendance number. Review (published with permission): "I started meditation classes with Sossi at the beginning of the year. I had never done meditation previously but I had researched a lot about it. I suffer a lot from anxiety and panic and had read that it would be helpful to me. It has changed my life around, I now feel calmer, happier in myself and am able to appreciate my day to day life more. Sossi is a fantastic teacher as well as a lovely person. I looked forward every week to my class and I really felt I have learnt so much from Sossi and am able to incorporate it into my meditation which I now do on a daily basis. Sossi has so much knowledge about meditation and mindfulness and genuinely cares about everyone in her groups. She often messaged me during the week to see how I was doing and how I felt from my experience in the class that week. Her communication is excellent and I cannot recommend her enough. Meditation is something which takes practice and when done regularly will have a big impact on your life. I highly recommend Sossi."
