u3a Subject Adviser for mindfulness, Nancy Taylor, put together a series of workshops for members at the start of lockdown in 2020. These can be enjoyed on our u3a YouTube Channel. This summer we will be hosting live mindfulness workshops, open to any u3a member, with some of the group leaders who are already bringing mindfulness and meditation to their local u3as. Check back here, or sign up for monthly updates on our Online Events Page.

Particularly in these uncertain times - mindfulness has become ever more popular amongst people of all ages, who want to connect with their situation and surroundings.

Jon Kabat Zinn - sometimes referred to as the Godfather of modern mindfulness defines mindfulness as: “The awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment”.  

We invite you to listen and take part in a short mindfulness practice. These sessions will run every Friday for at least six weeks, with each lasting 6-8 minutes. We hope that you find this useful in the current situation. 

Please also take a look at the mindfulness Subject Advice page for further information and support to establish and run your own mindfulness interest groups.
