‘Mindfulness at lunch-time’ is a free session of guided sitting and walking meditation. The lunchtimes are open to anyone who may enjoy a period of peace and reflection during the often busy working day. This practice of mindfulness includes: guided sitting meditation, walking meditation and enjoying our lunch together in silence.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is gently bringing our attention to the present moment, invoking our inherent capacity for healing and renewal. It is the basis for transforming ourselves and creating greater harmony in our lives and in society. To be mindful is to be aware of what is going on in our body, in our feelings, in our mind and in the world, as we avoid doing harm to ourselves and others. With the help of breathing – breathing and knowing we are breathing – we are able to touch and be nourished by the peace and joy that are available within us and around us, in the here and now.
Mindfulness@Lunchtime offers a time to share the pleasure of sitting together, walking together and eating together in mindfulness. Time not spent talking but simply letting the mind rest in full awareness. Meditation is not an exercise in analysis or reasoning. On the contrary, meditation rests the mind.
