In today’s busy world, we all experience the stress, pressures, and expectations of daily life – overconsumption, overwork, uncertainty and anxiety about the future. How can we touch peace and freedom in the midst of it all?
This workshop, located in the beautiful chapel of King’s College, in the heart of London, offers us time and space to come together to disengage from all the busyness and begin to reclaim our freedom.
With the tools of mindfulness practice, we will learn how to stop and listen more deeply to ourselves and others, to explore what binds us and what can make us more free.
Activities will consist of:
* Guided sitting meditation
* Talk by the monastics
* Walking meditation
* Eating meditation (during lunch)
* Deep relaxation
* Question & answer session
(See section Mindfulness for an introduction to these practices)
After the Workshop: Meditation Flash Mob
You are also invited to a meditation flash mob in front of the National Gallery at 17:00. We will walk mindfully from Kings College Chapel from 16:00 and sit for 30 minutes. Meditation flash mobs are part of Wake Up’s initiative to promote peace, harmony and unity between all human beings through public meditation.
