Meditation and Optimism – Live and interactive 1 hour online seminars.
There has never a been a time when having optimism and space to find calm and clarity is more important. Take some time out from the pandemic to join us online each week for three rich mindfulness meditations.
Open to beginners and experienced meditators alike this recurring mindfulness Meditation free seminar is taught by renown mindfulness expert and clinical psychologist Liana Taylor who brings the wealth of over 20 years experience. Come once, or every week.
Meditation brings a sense of kindness to ourselves and others. As we focus in the present moment we stop getting lost in thoughts of the past and worries about the future. The more we practice simply coming into the present moment, calm ourselves and reconnect to a sense of peace, the more we respond rather than react. We learn how to deal with life on its own terms.
Taught by Liana Taylor, Clinical Psychologist, mindfulness expert and Director of Training at the Australian Institute of Applied Mindfulness.
