As the second Meditation Workshop that Jackie Heffer-Cooke has run this year, she decided that after the success of January’s workshop aimed at Mums, that a beginners meditation workshop could help others deal and cope with the tougher days we all experience at times.

 

Read what our last course attendees had to say:

Yoga Weekend with Meditation“I really enjoyed the workshop on Saturday, it was exactly what I’d hoped it would be – a fun, informative introduction to meditation all centring around being a mum and overcoming the negative ‘bad mum’ thoughts we all have sometimes. It was just what I needed,” says Amy.

“I found the meditation that included the ‘She Let Go’ poem most helpful and most poignant. It reminded me to do just that, to ‘let go’ of all the anxiety, thoughts, thinking and planning…that sometimes just doesn’t stop,” says Samantha.

“It was a lovely day, I really enjoyed it. It was nice to get some ‘me time’ and to be with other mums. What I found particularly helpful was when we all said why we were there. It was kind of an unburdening for me of all the thoughts I’d been carrying around in my head. It was also really nice when the other mums were nodding their agreement, it was like I wasn’t alone and it was ok to feel how I felt. And other people felt the same!” says Emma.

Meditation workshop Inspiration

Here’s what inspired Jackie to set up our Meditation Workshops and what meditation is to her.

  1. It is ‘getting out of your head’, grounding yourself into your body and into the present moment. A break from the past and the future. Just in the present. Yoga does this for me perfectly, but so does ‘body focused’ meditation like yoga nigra.
  2. It is observing tugging, nagging, needless emotional thoughts, which aren’t in the least bit useful, to wind them back, see where they come from, and give them the attention they are so desperately after, in order to calm them down. Just like a toddler tugging on your dress, demanding attention, so your thoughts will do the same until you study them and see either a solution, an outcome, or simply are able to file them neatly away for good (this one not a tactic you can use on a toddler).
  3. It is learning to look at myself with loving kindness. Not to criticise and self-punish, but to understand when I need to ‘give myself a break’ and just be nice to my Self.
