Making Time For Mindfulness
18 October 2016
You asked and we delivered!
October’s event was all about Mindfulness – a subject popularly requested.
Scott Brown of Zen Balance took us through managing everyday stress with some mindfulness techniques he’s learnt on his journey from competitive athlete and city trader to Yoga and Mindfulness teacher in Dorset.
It seems in modern living that we can be caught up in lot of stress and anxiety about any number of issues. The talk will broadly look at how we can, with awareness, manage everyday stress, the roles we take on in life and a look at time pressure.
There will be a number of practises throughout the presentation that can be used to help develop a little mindfulness on a day to day basis and time for questions after.
From the event:
Prior to studying and teaching yoga and meditation, life looked a little different. A background in competitive sport and a career as a city trader had certainly taken its toll on my mind and body.
Life was very much about needing to get somewhere, very busy and not a lot of satisfaction. Luckily a friend introduced me to Andy Puddicombe prior to the days of Headspace when he had a little company called Asunya in Kensington.
I began mindfulness study, which in turn led to yoga study. Within a few years I was out of the city, living on the south coast with my daughter, teaching yoga and mindfulness full time.
The journey is ongoing, now studying with Zen Master Julian Daizan Skinner in the Rinzai tradition of Zen.
