Monthly Mindfulness Class with Dr Hagen Rampes
Are you curious about mindfulness? You are just too busy and have not yet had the chance to go to a class? Maybe you have been using a meditation app but not been to a live class? Perhaps you have done a mindfulness course and have not been practising regularly? Attend a 2-hour drop-in class and experience guided practices by Dr Hagen Rampes. You will meet a friendly group of like-minded people to practise with. There will be ample time for discussion and Q&A with Dr Hagen Rampes.
Here are some of the practices that Dr Hagen Rampes will be guiding at these monthly classes: Mindfulness of Breath, Mindful Stretching, Mindful Walking & Loving-Kindness Practice.
Why not take time for your own wellbeing? Wellbeing is a skill, which can be cultivated & practised. Mindfulness is good for your wellbeing. Practising mindfulness decreases your stress and activates your healing systems in your body. What you practice grows stronger.
Being present is not easy; however, it’s a skill that can be learned. You can train the mind to be here right now. Mindfulness practice helps us train our attention to be in the present moment. Mindfulness meditation helps you slow down and become aware of the present moment. Being in the present can help us to be joyful and reduce stress, anxiety and depression. Regular practice results in changes in our brains. For example, meditators have more grey matter in the frontal cortex whereas the cortex shrinks in most people as they age. Even just eight weeks of meditation changes people’s brains for the better. Thickening occurs in several regions of the brain, including the left hippocampus which is involved in learning, memory, and emotional regulation. The amygdala, a region of the brain associated with fear, anxiety, and aggression reduces in size with regular meditation practice. So attend the monthly online mindfulness class and reconnect with your inner self.
