Mindful Meditation is run weekly on Wednesdays at 11.00am by one of our chaplains, Dave. It is a guided process focused on breathing and based on mindfulness principles. No experience is necessary, Dave will walk you through it.

Set in the middle of the day, Mindful Meditation can help provide a reset to calm the body and mind. The process helps to control the monkey mind that likes to race all over the place and cause havoc with our thoughts and emotions.

Participants have noted feeling calmer, have greater clarity of thought, concentration, and perspective, and increased feelings of success and wellbeing.

In Semester 2 of 2019 Dave conducted 34 sessions, with 149 meditators, totalling 3000 mins of meditation.
