Following the success of previous workshops, Act The Maggot will host another Mind Yourself Morning on a Sunday this coming Autumn, from 11am to 12.30pm in Rathmines, Dublin 6. The workshop features an array of mindfulness exercises purpose-designed for the beginner. It’s also a great way to reconnect with a fallen practise. This relaxing morning is guaranteed to leave you rejuvenated and refreshed when you walk out the door. The cost of the workshop is €30 per person. You can read testimonials about previous Mind Yourself workshops, click here. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 087 374 4926 for more information and to book your spot. We will post here at the end of the summer when we arrange the date for the Autumn session.
WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
There is no short answer for this. It is simply paying attention, in the present moment and being aware of the now. That’s Amy’s short answer. For me, it is all about the breath. The sanctuary of the breath. When we pay attention to the rising and falling of our breaths, it takes us out of our minds (where we spend way too much time!) and harnesses us constantly back to the present moment. Yes, mindful meditation can be your own daily holiday from thinking, thinking, thinking. It’s worth exploring, that is for sure.
