This is a rare opportunity to learn mindfulness from two of the world’s leading mindfulness teachers, Dr Joel & Michelle Levey.
“Joel and Michelle Levey are presently engaged in work that has great prospects for bringing the inner sciences of human development and transformation to a very wide section of people.” His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
In this experiential workshop the Leveys will introduce you to a range of practices to bring greater awareness, ease and joy into your day-to-day living. Experience how mindfulness grows your capacity to be fully present in any situation so you can see more clearly your perceptions, thoughts and feelings. Become aware of other people’s worlds and act with more compassion and insight. Rather than feel overwhelmed by the stress and turbulence of today’s complex and fast-paced world, learn how to live, work and relate with a greater sense of spaciousness and flow and live your life ‘on purpose’.
Suitable for beginners to meditation and those with some experience.
“Contemplation is the highest expression of man’s intellectual and spiritual life. It is that life itself, fully awake, fully active, fully aware that it is alive. It is spiritual wonder. It is spontaneous awe at the sacredness of life, of being. It is gratitude for life, for awareness and for being.” Thomas Merton
Tickets £17 standard/ £8 concessions, bookings through Eventbrite. We expect this to be a popular event, early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
