‘Lost in thought – the human condition.’ Eckhart Tolle
Many of us lead full and hectic lives, and find it hard to relax. Our thoughts are
busy with all the things we have to do, with plans, worries, memories or fantasies.
Sometimes it feels as if our lives are slipping away.
Mindfulness meditation is a
simple approach to steadying the mind and bringing our attention into the present
moment. It is based on traditional meditation practices, but it is not linked to
any religion, and you don’t need to be religious to practise it.
‘Mindfulness is a turning towards life … to live as if each moment is important, as if each moment counted and could be worked with, even if it is a moment of pain, sadness, despair or fear.’
The Meditation Group meetings will start again on Friday, 4 January. Sessions are
from 5.00–6.00 in the Holy Trinity Parish Centre, Wallace Green. Please see the Classes
page for more detail about the sessions.
