Mindful Sitting Group

Our fortnightly online sitting group is open to anyone who has completed an eight week MBSR, MBCT, MBCP course, or equivalent. 

We come together to support each other in our deepening practice and understanding of Mindfulness. 

We meet online on the second Wednesday and last Friday of each month from 6pm to 7.30pm and explore different themes/ideas each time we meet.

We welcome all those who are seeking a friendly community of like minded beings to practice mindfulness together.

We also sometimes meet face2face to practice and walk together.

 

The intention of both our face to face and online meetings is to build a community of people who can connect with and support each other to bring mindfulness more into daily life.

"Being in a group so friendly and welcoming has been greatly beneficial... I feel as if I can find a way out of the woods in future!"

Group Details 

Our Sitting Group is a community of practitioners exploring different topics each week. Many people who have completed our eight week mindfulness course find the sitting group a helpful way of keeping up and deepening their practice.

 

We also welcome those who have taken an 8-week mindfulness course elsewhere and would like to connect and practice with like-minded others.

 

We hope to foster a sense of welcome and community in our sitting groups, providing an opportunity to come and practice together for those living in the New Forest and surrounding areas and online for those who would like to join us from further afield.
