I am really looking forward to the Mindfulness Day at Scarborough with Donna Giffen on the 1st July hosted by my dear friend and fellow Instructor Debs Horsham-Batley. Tickets are selling fast so grab yourself one fast!
In the meantime, why not have a go at this really simple Mindfulness Exercise and see what you think:
You can stand or sit. If you can sit in the meditation (lotus) position that would be great. Start by breathing in and out slowly. One breath cycle should last 6 seconds. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, letting your breath flow effortlessly in and out of your body. Let go of your thoughts. Let go of things you have to do later today or pending projects that need your attention. Simply let thoughts rise and fall of their own accord and be at one with your breath. Purposefully watch your breath, focusing your sense of awareness on its pathway as it enters your body and fills you with life. Then watch with your awareness as it works its way up and out of your mouth and its energy dissipates into the world.
If you are someone who thought they’d never be able to meditate, guess what? You are half way there already!
