Psychedelic Meditation is back for the 6th extravaganza where we'll be dropping into our bodies and the comforting, restful state of ‘groundedness’.
Modern living can leave our poor minds feeling crammed to the brim – day after day of busy schedules and complex relationships can overwhelm even the most zen among us. To make things trickier – we have thoughts and emotions tugging and pulling us back and forth into past and future drama too!
But by dropping into our breathing bodies, we can anchor our attention in the present moment and find that immutable, peaceful space within us.
In this session we will take you on a journey into earth, body, presence and stillness.
* Please arrive at 6:45pm for a start at 7pm.
* We recommend bringing a blanket to keep cosy and warm.
* Cushions and chairs will be provided.
* Tea will be provided.
