Friday morning meditations – in nature
Find peace in a stressful world with a group of like-minded people.
Led by Dr Sue Jackson, these outdoor meditations are a great way to connect with nature and your own inner world at the same time.
Join us once a month on a Friday morning to meditate in a small group, in selected outdoor nature destinations in Brisbane. This 1 – 1.5hr session, starting at 9:30am, will guide you through practices to calm the mind and relax the body.
This small group class is suitable for anyone interested in meditation, both those new to the practice, and for anyone with an established meditation practice wishing to deepen their practice through taking part in a guided group session involving a diversity of meditation exercises. A main focus of our practice will be walking meditation. In addition, we will engage in seated or lying down practices. All the practices are designed to help us connect with our physical body, our breath, and our capacity to be in the present moment. As part of our sessions, we engage in informal discussion on how we are going with applying meditation and mindfulness into our daily lives.
Payments can be made via bank transfer and you can either pay as you go for a single session or you can purchase a block of your choosing. Email Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your spot, and all details including destination and payment options will be sent to you. The dates for the upcoming 2020 sessions are provided below and be sure to check back for additional or alternate dates.
Closer to the date of each session, participants will be provided with details of the format for practice (in nature or online if bad weather), and the venue for outdoor practices.
