Under the guidance of experienced and friendly facilitators, you will experience Heartfulness, a simple and helpful approach to meditation and relaxation. All are welcome to join in the all ages program:

Morning (Bring a mat)

10.30am: Yoga Chi Gung with Barbara Leo

11.00am: Heartfulness Relaxation and Meditation workshop with Dana & John

Practising Heartfulness helps us experience the wisdom of our heart and, in doing so, we learn to let go of fear and to trust ourselves and our intuition. It aids us to become calmer, clearer, more effective and promotes overall wellbeing. For more information: en-us.heartfulness.org

Afternoon (Bring a mat)

12.25 pm: Yoga Chi Gung

12.45pm- 1.10pm : Heartfulness Relaxation and Meditation workshop

1.15 pm: Q & A

Meditation has been practised for thousands of years and its benefits are well documented. These include a reduction in stress as well as improvements in health, concentration and focus. With regular practise one's outlook on life becomes more positive, improving one's relationships with others, whether at work or in the family environment.

When Buddha was asked "What have you gained from meditation?" He replied, "Nothing. However, I have lost anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, and a fear of old age and death."

Practising Heartfulness helps us experience the wisdom of our heart and, in doing so, we learn to let go of fear and to trust ourselves and our intuition. We can also become calmer, clearer, more effective and balanced.

Heartfulness Meditation can include the use of `Transmission', a unique feature of the method which can help us deepen our experience of meditation and also amplify and accelerate our progress.
