There are many ways to learn and practice meditation. In this course Louise will introduce you to Mindfulness-Based Stillness Meditation (MBSM). This is a secular and culture-free meditation method, suitable for adults regardless of age or physical ability. The course is presented in a simple and practical 6-week step-by-step guide to beginning your own meditation practice. This course is based on the meditation method presented at the Gawler Foundation, Yarra Valley, Victoria. Recommended pre-reading is “Peace of Mind: How you can learn to meditate and use the power of your mind” by Ian Gawler. NB: Because the classes build on each other, it is important to commit to and attend each of the 6 sessions.
Prerequisites: Participants will sit on a chair or ring a meditation cushion or stool – there is no preferred posture. Being as comfortable as possible is essential, as is a willingness to be quite and sit still for up to 20 minute intervals.
