Mindfulness is a simple yet profound meditation practice that brings us fully into the present moment, restful yet alert. This happens when we bring our attention to some process such as our breathing or our bodily sensations and simply witness them without judgement.

Recent scientific research has established a wide range of positive effects, such as stress relief, improved health and happiness, increased mental performance and feeling more in control of our lives. In essence we learn how to master our minds and emotions rather than being enslaved by them.

During this day long class we will practice a few different mindfulness techniques and by the end you will have the tools to continue practicing by yourself. Vegetarian lunch is provided and there will be time for sharing and discussion in between meditation sessions.

The course is taught by Zeenat Sandra Cameron, an experienced meditation teacher and group facilitator who has studied extensively for twenty-five years in the Buddhist, Taoist, and Yogic traditions. She also trained as a clinical psychologist and has twenty years of experience as a psychotherapist.
