Our 4 week Mindfulness Practice workshop is recommended prior to the Meditation workshops.
“A daily Meditation practice can change your relationship to life, to yourself, to thoughts and to emotions.”
This statement is how I often begin teaching our 4-week Meditation Workshop. It’s wonderful how often people tell me they too discover this becomes their truth when their meditation practice becomes a regular part of their daily lives.
After discovering the enhanced awareness that Mindfulness brings us, we encourage people to learn the techniques and tools of a daily in-depth Meditation Practice.
As we learn to settle into a routine of daily sitting, our relationship to our thinking changes and subtle differences appear in our emotions. We feel calmer, more centred and less reactive. A sense of enhanced compassion and empathy arrives, both for ourselves and towards others. Our bodies begin to loosen, releasing often long held tension, and our need to control our external environment softens. The greatest and often the most welcome softening appears in our noticeably more relaxed approach to worry, anxiety and to fear.
During the classes, we learn why these changes happen and how our brains change because of the science of meditation.
How to Learn Meditation
We encourage our first time participants to join our month long Mindfulness Practice workshops or our Workplace Mindfulness experiences. After that participants are invited to join any of our open courses or become part of a Mindful Living community that support each other in applying these learnings in practical ways in everyday life.
We also have custom designed meditation chairs available to buy and take home to support your practice at a discounted rate if you participate in our Meditation Practice workshops.
Meditation Practice Workshops
Our open Meditation Practice Workshops are held on Wednesday nights from 7 – 10pm in hosted spaces.
The Meditation Practice course is designed as an exploration of meditation as well as a way of establishing a personal daily practice. Having a structured way of approaching a seated practice as well as developing a habitual space helps embed the practice in our busy lives. Being able to come and sit in a group practice as well as learn and share experiences is a proven way of beginning a new practice or deepening or grounding your existing practice.
Investment: AED1300 per person for the full 4 weeks.
Contact us here to sign up or ask any questions about this workshop.
You can learn more about mindfulness in one on one private sessions. Each session is 75min long and will be tailored to your needs and questions. You can have as many sessions as you like although we recommend at least 4 sessions over the course of 4 weeks to get started. Private sessions are also a wonderful way of extending and deepening your meditation practice once you have completed our open workshops. A great benefit of doing the private sessions is that you will be able to book in at a time that works best for you! Each individual session costs AED700 (AED2800 for 4 week programme).
