Leading a busy life leaves little room for calm and relaxation. This can make it hard for us to wind down and enjoy the present. But finding these moments of calm is essential for our emotional well-being and mental health.
This meditation and mindfulness course is ideal if you want to learn to relax, be present, and alleviate stress in your life.
Meditation courses teach us to recognise the importance of conscious thought in our everyday lives. Develop concentration strategies to help focus your mind. Understand the principles of mindfulness. Learn to block out intrusive thoughts and enjoy the present moment.
This course is only open to clients of St Margaret's Centre, Durham.
In this meditation course, you’ll explore different styles of meditation so that you can practise whichever one you prefer.
Meditation and mindfulness courses are a safe and supportive space for you to reflect and incorporate relaxation into your life. You will learn tools and techniques to practise at home. We encourage you to use journaling to document your thoughts as you go through the process.
Mindfulness courses also teach you how to recognise and accept your feelings, without reacting or getting overwhelmed. This practice is important for achieving mental calm.
