An opportunity for women to take a step back from ‘busyness’ and dedicate an afternoon to important aspects of life which often get waylaid by everything else.
Most of us are flat out getting through each week, occasionally aware that we are out of balance and stressed but seemingly unable to change this situation. We rarely take the time to objectively look at our lives, our priorities and the way in which we choose to meet these. Sometimes we can be like battery operated toys, we keep on "doing" the same thing but don't stop to question if it is an aim worth working towards.
This afternoon will provide an opportunity for mindful reflection of priorities, review of goals and development of strategies to manage personal and work/life balance. We will be drawing on the principles of meditation and cognitive behaviour therapy to explore these areas.
The facilitator will be Debbie Ling, who teaches the Melbourne Meditation Centre Elwood class on Wednesday evenings. Debbie has 12 years' experience as a social worker and has been involved in several women's groups. The afternoon will involve a combination of meditation practice, small group discussion, individual reflective activities and some pen and paper exercises. All women are welcome to attend, no prior meditation experience necessary.
