Wollongong Beginners Meditation & Mindfulness Classes
Mondays 7.15pm & Wednesdays 7.00pm Morning sessions coming soon
Meditation and mindfulness are scientifically PROVEN to change the structure and functioning of the brain. The brain is plastic. Much like we can change the shape of our bodies through workout and stretching we can also change the brain - both the nerve pathways and the grey matter. The development of new technology has enabled scans to be done on brains before and after meditation to prove what yogis and eastern sages have known for 1000’s of years - that meditation can CHANGE your life.
This means that YOU can affect your thinking patterns to create the life you want and to be no longer held captive by negative, untrue and outdated thoughts that can lead to anxiety and depression.
Our courses will give you the skills you need to begin this journey of transformation helping you to become aware of YOUR thinking and emotional patterning and giving you the steps to bring about positive CHANGE.
And even if your life is just GREAT meditation can make it BETTER. It helps you think more clearly, increases memory retention and helps you step back from unruly emotions making you calmer and less reactive. It can help you sleep better too.
It's just overall pretty amazing. Experience meditation for yourself. Find some peace in our frantic world! Rediscover how to hold on to your sanity and re-connect to your calm, creative self.
Do I have to be a follow a religion to do mindfulness meditation?
No. Meditation has no religious beliefs – it is open to everyone.
Class times are Mondays at 7.15pm and Wednesdays at 7pm.
