Mindful Awareness is just the beginning Workshop

You are invited to a study day entitled:

‘Mindful Awareness is Just the Beginning’ Workshop

at Newland House, Edgbaston, Birmingham

On Sunday 28th June 2015, 9 30am to 4 00 pm

Cost £20 including vegetarian buffet lunch and all refreshments

The overall theme for the day is ‘Mindful Awareness is Just the Beginning!’

On the day we will:

  • Look at concepts
  • Undertake activities
  • And have discussions based around observation and attention and why these are important

We will explore:

  • what observes?
  • what is mindful of what?
  • mindfulness is just the beginning of what?
  • how can this lead to wisdom and happiness?
  • and the three aspects of man: Physical, Intellectual and Emotional (or Body, Mind and Heart)

mindful-right-lefthand-brainThere will be a showing of a video of a TED lecture (technology permitting) given by an eminent American neurologist. She gives a talk about her direct experience of seeing the brain from the ‘inside out’ during her own experience of suffering from a stroke.

She shares some thought provoking conclusions.

This will lead us into a discussion on the right hand/left hand brain and the part that these play in Mindful Meditation practices.

Activities offered to help us explore all this will be:

  • Tai Chi
  • Calligraphy
  • and Sounding (basic Sanskrit vowels, everyone will be able to do it).

All three demand attention, raise awareness and work on different aspects of our physical/mental/emotional being.


The aim is to have an interesting, happy, peaceful and inspiring day.

All are welcome including any family or friends you think may be interested, although we do have to limit the numbers to 24 people for practical reasons. So if you want to come please book early to save disappointment.

To secure your place on the workshop you can enrol using the form at the bottom of this page.

I look forward to seeing you,

How our introductory courses work

A tutor presents philosophical ideas, and leads a discussion based on what arises in the group. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge and experience. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.
