Please note that this event is now FULLY BOOKED. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please send Megan an email.
Megan now lives near Adelaide and teaches mindfulness meditation. Prue splits her time between Bendigo and Ballarat, and is a psychologist and “retired” yoga teacher.
On Monday July 23, 6.30-8pm, they will join forces at The Avenue Studios, to present a special mindfulness, meditation and self-care event, just for Bendigo! They will offer a variety of gentle, guided meditation practices and mindfulness exercises that cultivate stillness, balance and connection in mind and body.
This is a unique chance to spend some time exploring the fundamental need to pause, slow down and connect with self and others, so often drowned out by the white noise of everyday life. And to be receptive to our moment-to-moment experience with kindness and acceptance, as it unfolds.
The session will include both still and moving practices, in a friendly, intimate group environment. Suitable for beginners, those wishing to deepen their existing practice, or anyone who enjoys guidance and practicing with others. Cups of tea and tasty vegetarian finger food also offered! (Please note that some silence and quiet introspection is involved).
