Weekly Meditation Atelier
26 Avenue de Castelnau, Pézenas
50€ for 6 sessions or 10€ pay as you go
The meditations are secular, whatever your background or faith you are welcome. We explore specific, mindfulness and mindful self compassion meditation tools and techniques based on those taught within the evidence based 8 week Mindfulness Based Approaches and Compassion Focussed Therapy. The aim of the meditations is to equipe you with some new tools to handle challenging physical sensations, feelings, moods or social interactions.
The classes run as stand alone sessions, however the more frequently you come the more you’ll see the benefits. Overtime, with regular practice, you can increase the grey matter of the brain retraining thinking patterns giving new ways of responding to situations and experiences to achieve greater levels of peace, health, happiness, joy and wellbeing.
To deepen your practice you can attend the half day retreats which run regularly.
WHO IS THE GROUP FOR?
However there are certain conditions and circumstances where mindfulness practice may not be helpful. If you have recently experienced a major life event, or face significant challenges with your physical or mental health please discuss this with me in advance of the group and follow the guidance about self-care at the start of the session. You will be asked to complete a short healthcare form at when you first attend a session.
If you’d like to explore anything that arises within the sessions in greater depth the monthly Wellbeing Ateliers are an ideal follow up. More details here.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
- Wear loose comfortable clothing
- A yoga mat
- A blanket in cooler weather
- Chairs will be provided for the sitting practice but please bring any props for your own comfort, meditation stool, cushions etc
- Please wear a mask into the venue that you can remove on sitting
You can park after the red and white barrier leading to a private road (to the left of the picture), simply life the pin out and push the gate, then close it after you have parked. Enter through the gate pictured, it will have a chain wrapped around it but won’t be locked. You’ll find me in the barn to the left, the building covered in ivy.
If you arrive a little after the time, please don’t worry, just settle into the practice as you can.
