Keep Calm & Meditate @ Barnabas Arts House
Feb 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Why not join us at Barnabas Arts House to take time out for self-nurturing and self-growth?

Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better, it’s about befriending who we are.

Pema Chodron

Meditation is known to reduce stress & anxiety, improve memory & sleep and increase confidence & self-awareness. If all this was offered in a pill- would you take it? Well, there’s no pill involved – all that’s required is a chair or a cushion and YOU…

Wednesday drop-in meditation sessions are suitable for beginners and practitioners alike. Because it is a drop-in session, you can choose when to come along and give yourself what you may later consider to be the best gift of your life.

These sessions will be guided by Philomena, our resident wellbeing coach & mindfulness practitioner.

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.
