Mindfulness Meditation Evening In My New Meditation Space This Wednesday

Mindfulness, Meditation, Mindfulness Meditation, Evening, Kent, Rochester, Medway

Good evening,

I’m excited to announce that this Wednesday (4th June) I will be running a Mindfulness Meditation evening from 7pm.  I’m even more excited because this will be the first event in my new meditation space!

The evening will explore what meditation is all about and will include several meditations covering guided and silent forms.  My aim is to show you the benefits meditation can bring to your lives and no previous experience is needed, just a curiousity to learn and grow, although equally it will grow any experiences and techniques you may already have developed.

I will provide chairs and mats but you are welcome to bring your own, as well as cushions, blankets, meditation benches, etc.  I will also provide refreshments.  The night will cost £5.00 and it would be a pleasure for you to attend and mark this special occasion with me.

The address is The Farthing, Nashenden Lane, Rochester ME1 3JQ.  Please email or phone me if you are interested on 07815 783250 or susan@mindingthesoul.co.uk even if you would just like more information.

Love and blessings,

Susan xx

The Mindfulness Challenge Day 5 – Mindful Walking

This is the final part of the Mindfulness Challenge.  I hope over the course of the week you’ve enjoyed Mindfulness and living Mindfully.  I also hope the space, peace and awareness it has given you as benefited you in all areas of your life.  This challenge has looked at five areas but Mindfulness can be applied to all areas of your life.

Mindful walking is a great way to explore yourself and the world around you.  It allows you to step back from your thoughts or emotions and not only take a break from the day but to step out of the situation entirely.

To walk Mindfully start by taking a deep breath, clear tour mind and then begin to walk slowly.  Look towards the ground as you feel every step in your legs and the sensations experienced by your whole body.  Do this practice for a minimum of two minutes but continue it for as long as you’d like.

The Mindfulness Challenge Day 4 – Mindful Teeth Brushing

Brushing our teeth bookends our days.  It’s how we start and finish.  Doing this mindfully lets us start and finish the day in a state of awareness and peace.  It is important and refreshingly easy to make time for ourselves when just adapt practices we already to become mindful.

To brush your teeth Mindfully take a deep breath before the practice and clear your mind.  Once you have done this brush your teeth slowly, taking your time and being aware of the sensations it creates.  Don’t engage with any thoughts that appear, just let them pass.

The Mindfulness Challenge Day 2 – Mindful Dish Washing

Doing the washing up isn’t everyone’s ideas of fun or their first choice for creating space and time in the day.  However when done mindfully even washing the dishes allows you to step back from your thoughts, letting them rise within you as you observe them.

When you mindfully wash the dishes become only in the present moment.  Feel the temperature of the water, the sounds that are made and any other sensation that occurs.  Allow your mind to be clear and free of thoughts.  Use the time to find peace, awareness and perspective on the day.  Any thoughts or insights that are important will stay with you.

Coming Next Week: The Mindfulness Challenge

Mindfulness is important to me, I try to live my life by it and can tell in my mood and state when I haven’t been.  Mindfulness allows us to be aware of the world around us on a much greater level and to respond to situations rather than react to them.

I extol the virtues of Mindfulness to those I meet in all areas of my life and have decided to bring Mindfulness to as many people as I can by running a small series called The Mindfulness Challenge next week.  I want to show the benefits of Mindfulness and help even more people to find and benefit from it.

I welcome you to take part in this journey and learn more about Mindfulness, or just to enjoy the experience even further if you already have Mindfulness in your life.

Mindfulness Meditation

Good evening,

After discussing feelings buried alive and EFT & Matrix Reimprinting I want to bring to the fore Mindfulness Meditation. It is so beautifully simple and clear how these all work hand in hand.  Like striking tapestry they blend effortlessly.

In Mindfulness Meditation we learn to see things how they really are in all areas of our life, without judgement.

When we practice Mindfulness Meditation we also learn to slow down, hold things to the light and stop fuelling negative thoughts.  We no longer get involved in the story of thoughts; because when we do we keep our self in a constant state of fight or flight which holds the body in a state of stress.  If we stay in this state it ultimately takes us in a downward spiral keeping us on the same merry go round of destruction, manifesting di-ease of the body and mind.

When embarking on a course of Mindful Meditation we train our mind to stay put; re-training the neural pathways in our brain and thus altering our habitual behaviour, attitudes, core beliefs and self-talk that become ingrained within us.  We learn to become aware and accepting of things in our life without judgement. We accept things just as they are, learning to respond rather than react to situations and things that happen in our everyday life.

Minding the Soul, Mindfulness, Meditation, Susan Cox

A compassion for others that perhaps we have never experienced prior to meditation is awakened within us. We learn to love our self – something this is often difficult to do.  Joy, peace and happiness follow.

When I embarked on my first eight week Mindfulness Meditation course with a wonderful teacher called Joyce Chi I had no idea what to really expect. My eight week journey was the start of a major personal transformation; one journey which I will be eternally grateful for.

I found this eight week experience so beneficial and profound that I became a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher and now offer my own series of courses including the eight week Mindfulness Meditation course.

If I can help you on your journey in whatever capacity that happens to be or you would like to join me on one of the courses I offer.  Find more information here, register your interest by emailing me or subscribing to the mailing list
