Monthly Mindfulness Drop-In with Nicole Perkins
Whether you are new to mindfulness and want to try it out in a relaxed and friendly environment, or you already have a mindfulness practice and want to stay motivated, this group is for you!
*note this session is the end of May due to Nicole teaching at her retreat on June 1st.
There are amazing meditation apps available these days, but a common experience is that it’s really hard to stay motivated to practise without a community of fellow meditators to encourage and support each other. The aim of this secular monthly drop-in is to provide a relaxed and friendly space to meditate together, share experiences and have fun.
These sessions are suitable for all: whether you are completely new to mindfulness, have completed an 8-week course and want support to maintain your practice, or have an established practice and would like to connect with fellow meditators.
What happens at the drop-in?
We start with a mindfulness meditation followed by discussion in small groups. Then after a tea break there’s the chance to ask questions, discuss our practice more generally and share tips and experiences. There’s no obligation to speak in the whole group - it is absolutely fine to come along and listen to others.
We meet normally on the first Sunday of the month from 5pm - 7pm. If you are running late you are still very welcome if there is capacity - please just join us quietly as we will normally start with a meditation, and you can pay in the break.
The cost of the drop-in is £10, payable on the door in cash.
Canvas Cafe are offering a special deal for members of the mindfulness drop-in: £5 hot drink + delicious homemade cake during the break.
