Feeling the need to slow down?

As part of our commitment to holistic wellbeing, Bodhi J Wellness Spa Retreat on Pier Street is delighted to present:

SLOWING DOWN – MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION by YOGACENTRIC

Bodhi J, 317 Pier Street | Thursdays 16 June, 23, 30 and 7 July, 14, and 21 | 6.00pm – 8.00pm

Mindfulness is a state of being alive and whole in the present moment, it is always available but it tends to elude us, especially during stressful and difficult times. In our current fast-paced world, stillness can be a rare experience, even a luxury. Being ‘busy’ has become the new social currency where people actually marvel at those who are busy – ‘keeping busy’ carries status! Our compulsion to being busy is having concerning consequences on our wellbeing and stress may manifest physically, mentally and emotionally.

Slowing Down – Mindfulness & Meditation is a 6-week course which offers an experiential understanding of mindfulness through formal practices of body-scanning, sitting meditation and yoga; and also explores ways of consciously responding to stressful situations and difficult conversations. This program will offer you an improved sense of wellbeing, enrich meaningful relationships, and provide a much deeper sense of calm to better manage the effects of stress in your life.

“Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment.”
– Jon Kabat-Zinn
