What are Mindfulness Meditation Sessions Like?

  • Each session is 90 minutes long;
  • Each session has a different theme and skills set which will be introduced at the beginning of the session;
  • There will be an opportunity to share your experience of the previous week’s meditation in pairs and with the group. This feedback will be followed by a taught element. After a short break we will do a meditative practice consolidating or building upon the previous week’s meditation. Each session will end with a short group discussion and instruction for the coming week’s personal practice.

How do I Take this Practice into my Daily Life?

During the course you will be given two practice CDs containing four guided meditations led by Zen Master Julian Daizan Skinner and you will also be given a meditation diary to record your experiences. You will be encouraged to practice the meditation skills taught for approximately 30 minutes each day to help you integrate the practices into daily life.
