Longmore Community hall, Banff Rd.

Free Talk  ‘Why Meditate?’ Friday 11 Oct

Meditation is a simple, effective method to calm the mind and to let go of stress, tension and worry. 

During this free event you will learn two simple kinds of breathing meditation that you can do anytime to quieten your mind. The teacher will also give a short talk on the many benefits of meditation, explain what meditation actually is and how we can get started with a regular meditation practice that brings good results.

We are delighted to be able to offer this free meditation event and a follow up subsidised meditation workshop in Keith this autumn. Supported by the national Mental Health and Well-Being Fund we aim to empower people with tools for greater happiness & well-being at a community level.

There will be refreshments & time to ask questions at the end.  The meditations will be done seated in chairs. 

Meditation Workshop ‘Meditation Made Easy’ Sat 9 Nov

Learn the art of enjoying meditation!  During this half day course you will receive step by step guidance on how to develop a joyful practice of daily meditation that brings energy, clarity, focus and inspiration.  

Meditation can sometimes seem difficult to master, regardless if you are a beginner or have been practising for many years. In fact meditation is an extremely logical and proven method for working with your mind and with the right instructions, and gentle but consistent effort, everyone can benefit from meditation.  Discover how to master your own mind and find an inner clarity, joy and peace that you may not have believed possible!

The course will include guided meditations, practical advice and time to answer any questions you may have about meditation. No previous experience is necessary.
This course is subsidised and supported by the national mental health and wellbeing fund giving people the opportunity to take care of their own mental health at a grass roots level.

Whether you are completely new to meditation, or have been practicing for many years, everyone can benefit from this course on the power and practical application of meditation.
