We all know how incredibly important good sleep is. It is medicine for both our body and minds. Unfortunately though, the complexity and stress of our modern-day lives has meant that we are getting less, in both quality and amount of sleep.
Mindfulness is a practice that is fundamental for dealing with insomnia or poor sleep patterns, and enables us to develop a more positive relationship with sleep.
In this 1.5 hour workshop you will…
· build personal awareness around the psychological factors* that are contributing to your sleep difficulties
· develop simple and practical mindfulness techniques to help you become more present and connected, and to help reach a sleep-conducive state.
· Experience guided mediations to help you practice these techniques and to experience a state of calmness and presence, setting you up for a more restful night’s sleep, and many more ahead!
(*This workshop will not be focusing on sleep disorders that are underpinned by a medical condition).
Course date/time: Thursday 16 August, 7pm-8.30pm
