Are you feeling stuck in a cycle of stress?
Tense, strung out, unable to relax?
Perhaps you find it challenging to let go of upsetting memories.
You may have painfully tight shoulders or find yourself holding your breath throughout the day.
Maybe you struggle to enjoy time with your loved ones because of the number of worries you’re dealing with.
In this free class, you will learn specific skills and practices to help break this exhausting cycle.
Get a taste of how it feels to be present with your mind, without trying to change who you are.
WHO THIS IS FOR
The content will be tailored to beginners and those new to mindfulness meditation, but anyone is welcome to attend, including current students and graduates.
It will also be especially useful for anyone going through a stressful event, whether big or small.
The class is completely FREE and there is no obligation to sign up for any of our other programs.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The director of Simply Mindful, Megan Layton, will facilitate the free class.
During the session, Megan will share snippets of the fascinating research behind mindfulness, and guide you through some simple meditation practices.
There will also be plenty of time for you to share your questions and comments, in a safe and supportive environment.
You don’t need to have anything special with you, although if you own a meditation cushion you are welcome to use it.
I have learnt so much. I have learnt to let go of expectations, to recognise when I’m judging myself, the need for self-compassion. I can’t wait to do more courses with Simply Mindful and continue my meditation. — 2022 course participant

be kinder to yourself
I have learnt that no stress is worth ruining my life, day, week or how I interact with my loved ones.
I’ve also learnt that I’m doing a good job and some patterns of stress management are toxic.

Mindfulness actually enables us to bring out the best in ourselves. It has enormous value and potential to help us live better, happier, more skillful and compassionate lives. It has helped me make sense of many things in my endeavours to understand human suffering and healing. Each time I teach, I am totally inspired by the feedback from participants about the impact it has on their lives, their relationships, their work and their understanding of themselves. —Megan

Megan is an amazing teacher. Many things she spoke about resonated and were very powerful. I also appreciated how she made herself available to chat.
I adored Megan’s grounded, loving and compassionate approach. My heartfelt gratitude.
