how to relax this summer: half-day workshop, december 13, palmerston north


2020, with all its 'unprecedented' surprises, is drawing to a close. So now - as summer stretches before us - many of us are looking forward to having the chance to relax and re-fresh. But Christmas and holidays often bring other challenges and pressures; and even if we take a little time to actually sit still and take a break from being busy, if our mind is unsettled it is difficult to find the inner peace and stillness that we so long for.

That peaceful mind can be a bit elusive. Sometimes concerns about what is happening in the world in general, as well as what is going on in our personal lives can seem a bit overwhelming. We may be more aware than ever about how unpredictable life can be. For many of us, anxiety, worry and/or frustration have become almost habitual. BUT like other habits and behaviours, these uncomfortable states of mind can be changed.

Meditation provides a chance to be still and 'reboot', so that we can shift negative mental and emotional habits over time, and are more able to maintain a peaceful and positive mind no matter what is going on around us. A peaceful mind might just be the very best present that you can take into the Christmas holidays - for yourself and others around you.

During this workshop, Birgit will guide us through some simple meditation techniques and practices to gradually reduce tension and worry, and enjoy more and more relaxed states of body and mind.

With practice we can learn to become more relaxed in everything we do – at home, at work, and at play.
