“In today's rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being.”
- Eckhart Tolle
Do you want to increase your joy, reduce anxiety and learn to stay present in the moment? Are you ready to deepen your spirituality, and meet others who can encourage and support you? You are invited to a monthly spirituality series called ‘Awaken.’
What is Awaken?
Do you desire a greater freedom from worry, reactions and compulsions? You might be drawn to develop a greater level of consciousness and personal growth, and are looking for a place of encouragement and challenge in which to pursue this. You may have been reading about mindfulness and doing meditation practice on your own, but want to find a place to join others to continue this practice. Perhaps you are having, or have had a crisis of faith? You might regard yourself as “post-church”, having left a church but yearning for a depth of spiritual life. You may not be from a church background at all, you may be coming from another spiritual tradition, or not regard yourself as religious at all.
Awaken is a community started by people in a similar space to you. We started it to create a safe space for ourselves and others like us, to explore insights, wondering and growing more deeply present and awake to our being. We do this through a guided meditation practice and discussion group with like-minded people.
A range of topics will be explored including
Identification with thinking
The inner observer
The eternal now - the illusion of time
