Meditation

Monday 1-1.30pm, Don't just do something, sit there. An opportunity to de-stress for 30 minutes of mindfulness and relaxation exercises. In mindfulness sessions we use meditation techiques to pay deliberate attention, without judging or analysing, to what is happening in the present moment. Mindfulness practice has been shown to be a resource for building resilience and wellbeing.

Tuesday 1-1.30pm Experiment with Light, A meditation based by Rex Ambler on his study of early Quakers, particularly the writings of Quakerism's founder, George Fox. It can be thought of as a Quaker meditation for seeking divine guidance on the important questions of life, be they work or study, relationships, spiritual development, etc. You don't have to be a Quaker to take part. Everyone is welcome.

Wednesday 9.30-10am and 12-12.30pm, please note lunchtime meditation will not be held on the last Wednesday of the month during term time.

Buddhist Mindfulness Society 6.30-7.30pm

Thursday 1-1.30pm Focusing Meditation. A secular meditation based on the work of Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago. Focusing is a psychotherapeutic model based on listening to the body. The central idea is that our physical self embodies a sense of our whole situation and that by listening for a "felt sense", we can gain insights that lead to real change in our life. Everyone is welcome. 

Friday 1-1.30pm, Don't just do something, sit there. An opportunity to de-stress for 30 minutes of mindfulness and relaxation exercises.
