The World Health Organization has called stress “the health epidemic of the 21st century”: but we can learn to tap into a deep reserve of stillness within that gives rise naturally to a gentle happiness that can help us navigate the most difficult of times.
If our mind is peaceful, we can feel calm even in the most challenging situations. We feel happier, and this is good for both ourselves and those around us.
Meditation can be a really effective way of helping us slow down and relax by letting go of our distractions: and when
'the turbulence of our mental busy-ness subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arise from within.'
In this half-day workshop, Birgit will guide us through a series of three breathing meditations that help calm the mind, reduce stress and give rise to an experience of inner peace and well-being.
By practising these meditations over time, we can experience a sense of calmness and contentment that helps us cope with the external busyness and difficulties of daily life.
