Looking to practise mindfulness with the support of a friendly local group?
Cultivating mindfulness and meditation calls for a combination of self-practise and practise with others. Being in the physical company and presence of like-minded people, and having supportive spiritual friendships unlocks everybody’s potential. The Buddha teaches us this.
It’s for this reason that Mindfulness Bournemouth runs weekly mindfulness and spiritual groups on Thursday evenings in Southbourne. Enjoy the company of a friendly bunch of people who support each other and have some fun in the process! The group welcomes people practising at all levels including those who are new to mindfulness and meditation seeking an introduction.
This group is run on a ‘dana’ basis. Dana is a Sanskrit word meaning “the practice of cultivating generosity.” You may attend the group for free or donate an amount of your choice.
Here’s what we cover in the group:
Feel free to try the group for a week and then decide from there whether you’d like to attend regularly. There are a maximum of 8 people in the group. The sessions are 1 hour 30 minutes. Refreshments are included.
