A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO MINDFULNESS MEDITATION

Kathryn Buxton

Have you always wondered if mindfulness meditation could help manage your anxiety but didn’t know where to start? Online courses and phone apps can help but sometimes you need the weekly support and guidance of an experienced teacher and the comfort of learning with like-hearted people. This highly practical course will help you to understand why mindfulness is so effective, why our brains are hardwired to see the negative and how a practice of mindfulness meditation can help.

Each session is one and a half hours long to allow for some teaching and then lots of opportunity to practice the various formal mindfulness techniques. You will have exclusive access to the meditations used via the tutor’s website and lots of opportunity to ask questions and share your experience. You will go away with the confidence to start your own formal practice and a deeper understanding of how mindfulness works.

Your tutor, Kathryn Buxton, has been teaching meditation for over 5 years here at The Isbourne and throughout Gloucestershire. She regularly teaches in a variety of corporate settings as well as at Eastwood Park Women’s Prison.

All participants will receive a £10 voucher to use on any of Kathryn’s meditation retreats, which range from a two hour Sunday mini-retreat, a whole day silent meditation retreat or a full weekend of meditation.
