A day of mindfulness in Coventry city-centre. Learn how to build an effective and sustainable practice.

About this Event

Are you looking to bring more peace and contentment to your life? Interested in how mindfulness can help you? Come to this day-retreat to learn the foundations of an effective mindfulness practice.

Through the day, we’ll cut through the confusion and complexity that can surround mindfulness, getting to the core of what mindfulness is and the basic ingredients for cultivating it.

Led by Dr Michael Roberts (The Mindfulness Tree), we will examine some of the simple foundations that support a sustainable practice, including the importance of:

– Keeping meditation simple and regular

– Prioritising awareness over complex theory

– Connecting with your “Why”

– Focusing on compassion for self and others

Attendees will be introduced to some formal meditation practices, along with informal techniques for building mindfulness into everyday life.

We will also discuss concrete steps for building a practice routine, including where, what, when and how long to practice.

All participants will also have the chance to explore their meditation experiences with the help of the facilitator and the rest of the group, if desired.

This day is designed as a full introduction to mindfulness-practice, and it is aimed at those seeking to build a practice for themselves, or those wishing to re-invigorate an existing practice.

Please arrive at 9:45 for start at 10:00. Participants can bring their own lunch, or are welcome to use one of the many local shops/cafes to purchase food during breaks. Tea/coffee/refreshments will be provided.
