28th May St Marks – May Mindfulness Workshop – Mindfulness and Spirituality
As many of you know I teach mindfulness from a perspective that is consistent with both science and spirituality.
Much of my study was done before the public had heard of mindfulness in the UK and many of the scientific studies were only beginning to make an impact.
My personal journey to mindfulness has taken me to some interesting spiritual places such as: Advaita, Taoism, Non-Duality, Drukpa, Zen and mainstream Buddhism to name but a few.
In this session I shall do a tour of the meditations that I have picked up from all of these different traditions and explain them in the process.
I will also include some meditations that I have derived from the original meditations.
Everyone is welcome, spiritual or secular. If you’re a secular meditator, I strongly suggest that you come along. You will get an opportunity to experience and hear about the practices without having to listen to dogma and hopefully add to your knowledge of meditation and mindfulness.

Every Tuesday at 1:15pm – Chantry Studios
Come to our weekly 1:15pm meditations at the enchanting Chantry Studios in Bromley Common. Take a look on our site for details. I teach a combination of mindfulness and gratitude meditation here. Everyone is welcome.

The Bromley mindfulness blog
I have been blogging on meditation, mindfulness and associated subjects since 2010. Most of these posts I wrote for other sites and I have now consolidated them all on the Bromley mindfulness site.

Have a great May and contact me if you have any questions.
