PRACTICAL MINDFULNESS – TO SIMPLY BE!

You are invited to a study day entitled:

‘Practical Mindfulness – To Simply Be’ Workshop

at Newland House, Edgbaston, Birmingham

On Sunday 21st February, 9 30am to 4 00 pm

Cost £20 including vegetarian buffet lunch and all refreshments

Everyone is invited, including family and friends.

Throughout the day we will explore:

  1. A holistic model of Man.
  2. How a superficial essence covers up our true authentic essence.
  3. How the quality of the energy of nature (the Guna) affect body, mind and heart.
  4. What forces and influences affect us that prevent us simply being our true Self.
  5. The role the human brain plays in all of this, including a TED talk from an eminent neuroscientist who had a stroke.
  6. What we can do to regain balance and simply be.
  7. Mindfulness and Meditation, the difference between the two.
  8. Practice of Tai Chi, Intuitive Drawing and simple Sounding.

The aim of these workshops is to provide a useful opportunity for students, friends and family to meet together and practice with a little more focus in a conducive, friendly environment, what has been discussed to enable us to discover more fully from a practical point of view what is presented at the evening philosophy meetings. A very useful and enjoyable day for self-discovery.

The day will be conducted in the school’s usual open and relaxed manner, beginning at 9:30am and finishing at 4pm. The cost for the day is £20 which includes a vegetarian buffet lunch and all other refreshments.

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.
