Meditation and mindfulness are both ways to find inner peace and to make the most of every moment.  They help you to stay centred and balanced, to improve your focus and feel more ‘in charge’ of yourself.  Often daily stresses can lead to rushing, making poor decisions, emotions coming up and ill health.

In this course you learn Pure Meditation Foundation and mindfulness tools, it includes a book (paid for separately $25), handouts and ongoing support.  Along with relaxation techniques and talk on meditation and mindfulness, to help deepen your understanding.  Held over four weeks for two hours.
