Donation Event: Mindfulness Mentoring – A One-To-One Approach For Sustaining and Deepening A Mindfulness Practice with Ed Halliwell
April 18, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm BST
About the event:
Mindfulness-based learning often happens in groups, and for good reason – following a tried-and-tested curriculum with others brings insight into the commonalities of human experience and offers vital encouragement as we develop a meditation practice. But has the emphasis on group training in the mindfulness field obscured the potential for a personalised approach? In one-to-one Mindfulness Mentoring, meditation practice, and inquiry are tailored to the unique needs of an individual moment-by-moment, enabling a flexible, responsive, and intimately relational approach to learning that is not always possible in a group, and which can be hugely powerful in supporting transformation during and beyond a typical eight-week course. In this session, we will look at what mindfulness mentoring can and can’t offer, what frameworks it can draw on, what typical sessions involve, who can benefit, and how this emergent approach to supporting mindful living might evolve as the mindfulness teaching field changes and matures.
This event is offered in collaboration with the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) – an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences. Led by a Committee of Volunteers, supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to run a programme of donation-based events and inspiring content.
