  1. Practice an extended version of the mindful awareness exercise.
  2. Look at awareness and attention.
  3. Balance simply be mindfulness workshop BirminghamStudy a universal holistic model of man.
  4. Discuss what takes us out of balance and how it may be regained.
  5. We shall look at what role the brain plays in all of this.
  6. (As long as the technology works) we will show two short videos of TED lectures given by an eminent American Neurologist who had a stroke and talks about her experience of having the opportunity of seeing the brain from the ‘inside out’, and the conclusions she draws from that.
  7. This will lead to a discussion on the right hand/left hand brain and the part these play in Mindfulness and Meditation practices.
  8. Activities offered to help us explore all this will be: Tai Chi and Calligraphy. Both demand attention, raise awareness and work on different aspects of our physical/mental/emotional being.

The aim of these workshops is to provide a useful opportunity for students, friends and family to meet together and practice with a little more focus in a conducive, friendly environment, what has been discussed to enable us to discover more fully from a practical point of view what is presented at the evening philosophy meetings. A very useful and enjoyable day for self-discovery.

The day will be conducted in the school’s usual open and relaxed manner, beginning at 9:30am and finishing at 4pm. The cost for the day is £20 which includes a vegetarian buffet lunch and all other refreshments.
