    Taravajra and Ruth Sequeira

    Exploring mindful movement practice 

    Mindful Movement is a fundamental part of mindfulness teaching, offering ways to make deeper contact with the body and to bring us more fully into the present moment. Emotional patterns often show up in the body before the mind notices them and working with the body in movement can open the way to greater choice and freedom.

    This programme is designed for those who are teaching Mindfulness-Based courses. The emphasis will be on deepening understanding of personal mindful movement practice through experience and exploration in a way that encourages curiosity and further integration with other mindfulness practices.

    Please book your place via eventbrite
