Why should you join?
Starting a meditation practice can be challenging for many due to the demands of our busy lives, time constraints, and daily stressors. This program offers dedicated support to overcome these obstacles and prioritise the body's sensations over the mind's chatter. By becoming more attuned to the body and experiencing the benefits of conscious breathing and breathwork practices, participants can establish a sustainable meditation routine.
What is the commitment?
The program spans five weeks, with each session lasting 75 minutes. The sessions encompass well-being check-ins, embodiment practices like bioenergetics and movement, pranayama/breathing exercises, guided meditation, and educational material to deepen the understanding of the practices.
The program's cost is $230, with an early bird rate of $195 for those who register in advance. Additionally, a limited number of sponsored spots are available to support inclusivity.
Come and embark on a journey of self-discovery, inner peace, and personal growth through the power of breath. Join Silent Mind Gatherings and connect with a community of individuals on a similar quest to explore the vast potential within themselves.
