Mindfulness Practice Day

24 Feb 2012

Saturday 10 March 2012 (9.15am-4.30pm) in the Wellbeing Room, Dover Street Building.

Mindfulness Practice Day is organised by Manchester Mindfulness Meditation with the support of The University of Manchester Counselling Service.

The day focuses on the cultivation of mindfulness and its aim is to make participants realise that we are often on automatic pilot.

The danger of living our life on automatic pilot is that we will also react automatically and so be easily caught in unhelpful or destructive emotional and mental patterns.

Practising mindfulness teaches up to pay attention in a particular way: “intentionally, in the present moment and without judgment”. This then has the capacity to change the nature of our experience.

The day is an opportunity to practise sustained mindfulness meditation supported by an atmosphere of silence. It is suitable for beginners as well as those with experience of meditation practice. Guidance will be given and there will be talks as well as the opportunity to ask questions.

The day is taught by Jake Dartington who has practised Buddhist meditation since 1995 and trained as a teacher with Christina Feldman. He has been teaching meditation retreats at Gaia House in Devon and around the UK since 2007.

Registration will take place between 9.15am and 9.45am.
