Event description

Description

By increasing your ability to live mindfully and by developing the skills to manage stressful experiences, as well as learning to tend to and nurture your resilience and well-being, you can learn how living mindfully can revitalise, recharge and replenish you.

‘Mindful Meditation’ is about remembering to care for yourself by choosing kindness and compassion over anger, jealousy and distractions. To ‘Meditate’ means to remember – and ‘mindful meditation’ is about remembering to step to one side, observing what is happening, and choosing your next course of action.

It is not limited to a time, location, posture or mantra. You can do it while walking, washing, playing, working, reading, writing, talking or even singing.


In this session, you will:

* Learn 3 simple things to do for a Mindful Meditation

* Discover the benefits of mindfulness, both physical and emotional

* Go for a guided Mindful Walk, in the beautiful Botanic Gardens

* Be introduced to guided meditations on the breath and loving kindness

* Have the opportunity to inquire about mindfulness, meditation, stress management, resilience and how to develop your own Mindful practice.


Also, be the first to learn about Jindii EcoSpa's new and upcoming Mindfulness Programs.

A delicious morning tea will be served.
