Supportive small group course for people with little or no experience of meditation.

Join this 4-week course where you will learn how to practice both structured meditation and incidental mindfulness. Additionally, you will learn how to deal with difficulties as well as monitoring improvements.

Our teacher has over 10 years of meditation experience in Australia. Sabina is a specialist meditation teacher and brings a gentle and grounded approach to here teaching. Call: 03 9972 4518. Places limited to 10 people only.

This 4-week course consists of 4 x 1.5 hour classes held one night per week (Wednesdays) over 4 weeks. The course is structured to teach you how to meditate by yourself. It aims to give you the skills to use meditation to reduce stress, improve sleep, enhance mental clarity and increased your quality of life.

Each class includes 2–4 meditations with theory, guidance and discussion. We introduce four main techniques that teach body relaxation, mental calm and increased awareness.

- Relax Body meditation. (softens the body and builds a base for the following techniques)
- Calm Mind meditation. (Calms and focuses overactive minds)
- Breath Tranquility meditation. (breath awareness trains you to be more calm, relaxed and happy)
- Emotional awareness meditation. (sleep better, lower blood pressure, reduce fatigue and aging, and manage pain)

This course is cumulative, gradually moving from theory into longer guided meditations using multiple techniques. Time is given to individual discussion and feedback, and offers the opportunity to reflect on results and progress.

Learning is easier within a group and whilst being guided by a teacher. But often the hard part is training yourself to use meditation outside of the class. We include triggers and reminders that can help both in your formal sit down practice, or when using the techniques as short restorative ‘time outs’ during your normal activities to calm yourself, avoid exhaustion and keep yourself functioning with less stress all day long.

You are likely to get good results from the very first class, but just like any skill, meditation takes practice to learn. We suggest 10–15 minutes most days, either in one sitting or made up of several shorter sessions throughout the day, to sustain the benefits. It usually requires a minimum of 4 weeks to consolidate your learning.

During the course we encourage you to meditate in chairs, not seated on the floor, but feel free to lie down for some meditations. There will be no refunds after a course has started.
