As we live in such an incredibly fast-paced modern world, the demands on us are great. New technology has brought about many benefits - we can access information quickly and have everything at our fingertips, however, on the flip side, there are certainly some downfalls. Primarily most people these days aren't able to shut off anymore and one's mind is overworked and powered up 24/7. Therefore, it is no surprise, that meditation and mindfulness events are increasingly popular these days to help relax the body and shut off the mind - even if it's just for a moment, as it still offers a lot of benefit to one's overall well-being.
This summer, why not join hundreds of women, all coming together on a warm summer evening in a mass meditation event at the National Gallery of Victoria on Tuesday the 13th of February, starting at 6:45pm. As this event is held the day before Valentine's Day, the event organisers have themed the night "Self-love: Openness to Love".
This event, presented by Girllnspo.com, promises to be a lovely evening of meditation to sound – native and melodic drums, chimes and Tibetan Singing bowls will be played by Katie Underwood to create a fantastic and relaxing atmosphere and Tami Roos, a meditation facilitator, will guide participants through a gorgeous meditation sequence.
These two facilitators have a wealth of experience in this field; Katie Underwood is a sound healer, singer, reiki practitioner and meditation teacher, certified by the Melbourne Mediation Centre. She believes in the power of sound and meditation for the healing of the mind and body. Tami Ross is a meditation facilitator and intuitive counsellor. Her love of meditation inspired her to complete her PhD in Parapsychic Science and she wrote her dissertation on meditation and its benefits to the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies.
With all the knowledge and experience from these two facilitators, you will certainly walk out of the event feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated.
Please note this is a women's only event and seating is limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are priced $38 and can be purchased online – unfortunately tickets cannot be purchased on the night.
