Louise Baker of Marlow Hypnotherapy is offering a unique series of workshops, starting with Mindful Meditation Relaxation Techniques. This first of a series of 6 will introduce you to the theory and practice of mediation techniques, utilising best practice to help you achieve the benefits of a calmer, more focused and happier mind more quickly than you had ever realised you could.
If you have ever wondered about the answers to questions like
- What is meditation?
- What is altered state ?
- What is trance ?
- How does it help me
- How do I do it ?
- Whats it all about ?
- Whats makes this relevant to me ?
Then this may be just the right place for you to start. If you are looking for a place to meet regularly to practice quiet time and to help your self gain focus and clarity over issues then this may be a way for you to gain an introduction into mind management tools. It has struck me for a while that there is a lot of things written about the state of mediation and also a great deal of differing perspectives. What you will get in these classes is an opportunity to learn, practice and meet new people.
The Challenge of being too Busy
We live in changing times, we are all expected to do more with less and although we have an almost infinite source of resource and power within ourselves to achieve so much we can feel lacking. The challenge is that we are equipped with a physiology that isn’t supposed to hang on to stuff, but through the way we think and construct our thoughts we do exactly that. Ideas about how we ought to be, or should be, or must be. Creating in our heads pictures of the things we don’t want thus focusing more and more on that very thing. Then comparing ourselves with others instead of trusting n our own goals , skills and behaviours. I’m not saying do less I’m suggesting that you learn to consistently manage your emotional overload and get with the program of enjoying life.
The Busy-ness of Being a Marlow-vian
Our beautiful but busy town is full of hardworking, busy people who don’t have much time, but need to make time to look after themselves. It is important to still your mind and focus on the important things in life. Being happy is important and learning to consistently chose happiness as a state of mind and body is possibly one of the most important things to learn how to do. That process and learning is something that changes the very structure of your mind. The neuroscientists call this human ability to change the very structure of your mins “neuro-plasticity”. We can all do it. Remember the story about the Buddhist monk who is officially the happiest man on earth ? Why not have a piece of what he’s having.
Practice makes towards perfect ……
Practice makes perfect and as explained to centuries of students who have studied the mind and meditation techniques and altered states, this is just learning how your mind and body work. This work is approach from a secular view point, ,eating there is no single philosophical view point taken in this set of classes it is about learning efficient and smart techniques to calm the mind, gain perspective and focus on whats important. Its is a blend of the science the proof that it works, ancient wisdom and modern knowledge about linguistics, the mind and tried and tested cognitive techniques.
Schedule of Classes
The Spring/ Summer schedule is currently being worked out, class sizes are limited to 10 and accommodated at the Marlow Hypnotherapy Centre, close to the High Street but far enough to be away from the hustle and noise of the high street with the benefit of ample free parking. Classes will be held during the day on Wednesday. A business persons session will be held during the lunchtime hours and the Mindful Mums sessions after the school run but before lunchtime. Midweek is perfect as it is a great time to recharge the batteries to maintain energy throughout the week. Saturday mornings (Saturday Serenity) will be held twice a month and those session will be 2 hours each.
Anyone can come, no previous experience needed, a chance to enjoy time and all the infinite space of your inner mind.
