Preview Evening for the Month of Mindfulness Program January 2018 (MoM18)

Schedule:  On Sunday  December 10, 7:00 – 8:30 pm we happily bring you a preview of our  Month of Mindfulness January 2018 Program offered by the London Mindfulness Community (LMC).  The preview evening will include some typical introductory meditations.  We also preview some mindfulness enhancing exercises used in the program which are practiced by participants at home. An emphasis is on fun and creativity. We will also have open discussion tea and chat about the program.  Please note that December 10 will be our last London Mindfulness Meeting for December 2018, and we will re-open on January 7, 2018.  So there will be no Tuesday or Sunday meetings until then.

Goals of the Program

It seems we are always running to catch up, or evading ever increasing problems.  Mindfulness, a natural quality which we are born with, offers powerful alternatives, based on embracing awareness in the present moment.  It’s been kept alive, mainly in the East by Buddhists, and recently scientific evidence including brain scans have given strong support for its beneficial effects.  The program’s goal is to provide a step by step practical guide to enhancing mindfulness in your own life, communication and relationships. This is done in secular form in plain language, that reflects the common sense of Mindfulness ideas. Use of Body and Breath, mindful movement and walking mediation, provide powerful and subtle methods to bring us into the present moment.  There is a very nice tea break in the middle of the weekly sessions, so that participants can chat with the facilitators and other participants.  The program design is based on a shortened form of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s pioneering 8 week Mindfulness program, with refinements made by Mark Williams.  We are also influenced by Tara Brach and Thich Nhat Hanh.
