Mindfulness Practice Days: what you said about the last one (5 March 2016)

Mindfulness Practice Days are for those who have completed (or are currently completing) a mindfulness course such as Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) or Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).  Practice days are an opportunity to consolidate practice and learn a few more.  The last one was held on Saturday 5 March 2016 and here is some of the feedback from participants:

Everything went really well.  I enjoyed the practices.  I learnt that I can be aware of my body/ sounds/ thoughts by just not trying too hard..  and not judging myself.  I liked the variety of practices, the pace of the exercises.

I thought the day was structured well and I liked the variation between practices.  That way, when I felt that one hadn’t gone as well as I would have liked there was something new next time.  As someone new to this, I found the silence a little awkward and needed a bit more introduction to it.

I learn new kinds of meditation – kindness, letter of appreciation, the mountain practice – it was excellent.

It was a calm space and I liked the balance of talking time and a quiet space in the practices.  It was guided well, but not intrusive – a good balance achieved.

The day went well.  The movement was great (nicer than mindful walking).  The ‘kindness’ exercise was very powerful and I enjoyed the ‘mountain’ meditation.

I learnt about movement – had a real sense of energy ‘coming out’.  And about being kind to ourselves, grateful for others.. and just how far my mind can feel it can travel.
