Drop-In Thursday - Challenges We Face When Practising Mindfulness

Uncategorized Feb 24, 2021
 

In this week's Drop-In Thursday session, I'll be talking about some of the challenges we face when we start to practise mindfulness.

This week's meditation will be slightly different as it involves chocolate - an exercise in mindful eating. So please make sure you bring at least two pieces to the session. (If you can't eat chocolate, bring a raisin!)

If you would like to explore this week's meditation theme further, here's a great article on 6 different ways to practise mindful eating: https://www.mindful.org/6-ways-practice-mindful-eating/

Last Week’s Poem: You Reading This Be Ready by William Stafford

 

Starting here, what do you want to remember?

How sunlight creeps along a shining floor?

What scent of old wood hovers, what softened

sound from outside fills the air?

 

Will you ever bring a better gift for the world

than the breathing respect that you carry

wherever you go right now? Are you waiting

for time to show you some better thoughts?

 

When you turn around, starting here, lift this

new glimpse that you found; carry into evening

all that you want from this day. This interval you spent

reading or hearing this, keep it for life - 

 

What can anyone give you greater than now, 

starting here, right in this room, when you turn around?
