Introduction to Mindfulness
30 October @ 9:00 am - 31 October @ 4:30 pm AESTFree
This 2 day mindfulness course will run from 9:00am – 4:30pm both days. Participants should be able to attend both days (ie: attending only on day 2 will not be permitted, as day 2 relies on having attended day 1.
Contemporary mindfulness practices are everywhere at the moment. You’ll find mindfulness in schools, wellbeing centres, in hospitals and psychology clinics, in elite sports management and high-powered business boardrooms. Mindfulness seems to be everywhere these days, but how is it done and what is the point?
On this first day of this course we will take a close look at how to develop your own authentic mindfulness practice with a detailed discussion on the mindfulness technique itself. On day 2, we will look at how to refine and develop this practice, leading to greater proficiency and insight. The practice of mindfulness is grounded in the Buddha’s teaching and so this simple yet profound practice can lead us directly into the heart of the Buddha’s wisdom. In this way we may come to see that mindfulness can take us far beyond what we may have thought possible.
