Living Lightly, Sleeping Deeply – 12 May

7-9pm at Stromness Community Centre

Enjoy a relaxing Sunday evening of meditation!

During this special evening workshop in Stromness you will be guided in deeply calming meditations to soothe and calm your body and mind so that you sleep deeply and live lightly all week long. 

Our life is always changing. It never remains the same even for an instant, and every moment is completely fresh and new. Through simple guided meditation we can learn how to relax, rest our mind and be at peace in the present moment.  We can let go of the past, stop worrying about the future and find a joy and happiness that is very healing and nourishing for both body and mind. 

This evening meditation workshop will emphasise a gradual deepening through meditation and practical ways to let go of stress, tension and other negative states of mind. 

As these are the very same things that often hold us back in our everyday lives, the benefit of the workshop can continue into the days that follow.  We can learn to enjoy living lightly each day, acting with intention and sleeping easily and deeply each night.

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 part of a national mental health and wellbeing project giving people the opportunity to take care of their own mental health at a grass roots level and is run by a charity dedicated to bringing meditation to people where they live.  This will be our first visit to Orkney!

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.

Everyone is welcome!
