Intro to Mindfulness
5-week online course
Develop ease, fulfilment and a deeper connection to yourself and those around you in this experiential course led by Charlotte Mulvany
Charlotte will lead a small group through this focused training programme, taking us from the fundamentals, towards a confident mindfulness practice. With the support of community (sangha) and a commitment to our practice, we’ll forge a habit that will support us not only on the cushion (or chair or mat!), but most importantly, off the cushion, in our day-to-day life.
Introduction to Mindfulness
Online on Zoom
Thursdays in Feb, 7pm GMT / 8pm CEST
1, 8, 15, 22, 29 February
This is a small group adventure for a maximum of 12 people.
Some of the benefits that await...
Meditation helps us change behaviour for the better and supports every other healing modality, so we can stay focused on achieving our aspirations and goals.
Meaning & purpose
Meditation increases empathy, helping to develop our capacity to be with others with an open heart. It allows us to open more fully to the commonality of our humanity, to become a friendly presence in the face of what’s difficult.
Hello, I'm Charlotte
I’ve been a mindful teacher for about 11 years, practicing for just as long, and have soaked up well over 70,000 hours of formal meditation practice. Whether you’re a complete beginner or you’re re-committing to a meditation practice, I hope to MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE, because I’ve been there too.
There’s no better way to master something than by experiencing it, so commitment to this 5-week programme (and some homework in between!) will give you all the information, tools and technique you need to get you up and running with a consistent mindfulness practice.
What can feel effortful at first will feel intuitive and automatic with practice. As a group we’ll be developing the inner confidence to trust our innate wisdom, helping us to benefit from all our experiences, no matter how challenging.
It’s all there for the taking.
I look forward to supporting this part of your journey.
Week 1: Connecting, attention & intention + body scan
Learn how to arrive in the present moment with a relaxed attention, and tune into body sensations.
Week 2: Concentration & noting + questions & discussion
Using the breath as an anchor, we learn to steady and settle the mind.
Week 3: Sensory clarity: see, hear, feel
Opening ourselves to the breadth of our sensory experience, we’ll learn a powerful labelling technique See, Hear Feel, to elevate our mindfulness.
Week 4: Receptivity & equanimity + choiceless awareness
A mind that is established in mindfulness is open and receptive, our practice teaches us how to be with things just as they are.
Week 5: Awareness, acceptance & appreciation + discussion & course close
Practice cultivating positive affect by recognizing the goodness of life, with friendliness, kindness and gratitude.
