--View Description--

As we start to approach Christmas, which can be such a busy time of year, it's good to make time to really relax. A little space in a jam-packed diary to rest, release any tension that pops up during the festive season and to let go. Can you give yourself permission to have a night off from it all, to carve some time just for you - to allow yourself to rest.


Susie from Pause & Breathe and Morag from Sound Balance Scotland are delighted to collaborate again for a relaxing evening – you don’t need to do anything, just lie back and listen to a soothing yoga nidra (relaxation-style meditation) followed by a sound bath. Our theme for the night is “Relaxing into Winter”. We will be bringing in themes of resting, releasing, letting go and allowing. Susie will guide the yoga nidra aimed to allow the body to start to unwind, and to decompress. Morag will share some beautiful gentle sounds to aid our relaxation further.


Our session will be held on Sunday 12th December, 7-9pm via zoom. The cost of the session is £25, for the full evening (with discounts for The Heart Movement online subscribers). If this feels too much currently, please get in contact. We have subsidised spaces available - just let us know what you can afford, no questions asked.

£59.40

We are delighted to offer a Tea Ceremony, in partnership with LiYing from When Still Waters Speak.


From tea lovers to non-tea drinkers, from those who are familiar with the dance of meditation to those restless ones who fear the silence of the mind, tea ceremony will allow you to drop from your head into your heart, often times in the most unexpected ways. In this practice, we sit as love flows from our hearts into the bowls of tea, and it becomes simply something sacred to behold. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. Gratitude flows. Creativity unlocks.


We honour the ancient traditions, tea trees and earth, fire, water, mountains and rain, moon, stars and sun – nature's alchemy that is within us and yet, sadly forgotten in today's busy lives. In this soft gentle heart space, As the saying goes, the brewer defines the taste of the Tea that is served and the energy of a Tea Ceremony. As a devoted student of the Leaf, LiYing holds space for you to reconnect with your Highest Self and enhances the healing energies that flow through Tea with crystals and minerals’ crystalline powers.


LiYing also offers energy healing, breathwork and sonic sound during ceremony. It is a full body experience - not just about drinking tea.


As the Sage Laozi once said, "The Dao is a returning", and so it is that with Tea we can turn inward wordlessly, to return to our hearts, our soul


Our Tea Ceremony is taking place on a public holiday in January - one of those days that between celebrations and returning to work. Come and sit with us on Monday 3rd January 2-4pm. The tea is provided, and there will be a gift set for every attendee to take home with them.


As always, if the price means you cannot attend, we do have a subsidised space available - email: susie@pauseandbreathe.co.uk and just offer what you can afford, so questions asked.

Lyndsay Lunan -

Lyndsay has been facilitating meditation and mindfulness for the last 12 years in a range of settings, secular and non-secular. She first began practicing meditation in a Buddhist context and since has learned within a number of wisdom traditions. Her commitment is to awareness practice as an experiential process, allowing every individual to come into a direct, non-conceptual and felt experience of life. She believes that this is a practice available to every person, regardless of background or belief, and she is inspired by meditation and mindfulness as a way of experiencing our full humanness and our innate inter-connection.

Mindfulness for Life - 8-Week Course - online 7-9pm

Online
Thu 20 Jan 2022 - Thu 10 Mar 2022
£120.00
--View Description--

Ever feel stressed, overwhelmed or close to burn-out? Maybe you feel pulled in many different directions by the various demands of day-to-day life. Starting and maintaining a mindfulness practice may help you respond differently to life's stresses and allow you to enjoy the good times more fully.


Susie is delighted to share this course with you, to help you develop a regular Mindfulness practice and to integrate this into your life.


Our 8-week Course - "Mindfulness for Life" is an in-depth introduction to mindfulness, the aim is to help you develop a personal experience of mindfulness. Mindfulness for life is just that - the idea is to integrate mindfulness into your daily life - it is more than sitting on a cushion for 20 minutes a day. How can we be more mindful in our interactions, with eating, with how we move through life? For this to embed, there is the expectation of home practice.


The course is appropriate for participants completely new to mindfulness as well as those with some experience. The course begins by introducing the basic practices of breath and body awareness before developing into awareness of feelings and thoughts, meditations to nourish happiness and kindness, as well as practices to cultivate mindful communication.


The course consists of eight sessions in total, starting on Thursday 20th January 7-9pm, and running for eight consecutive weeks. The aim is very much to attend every session, if possible, and to commit to home practice too. The sessions will run via zoom, and will have a short comfort break in them.


Full programme materials will be supplied as well as access to audio recordings to help you build a daily practice. By committing to this course the aim is not only to attend each session, but also to practice mindfulness in daily life.


The cost of the 8 weeks is £150. There are discounts for our online subscribers. Please don't let cost put you off - I have subsidised places available, just contact me to discuss - susie@pauseandbreathe.co.uk.


Testimonials from previous 8-week course:

  • "This course has helped me feel less limited by anxiety, and better able to relate to and care for others"
  • "This gave me a chance to reacquaint me with myself and to start liking myself again"
  • "My mindfulness sessions have become a comforting sanctuary. I have enjoyed having quiet "me" time"
  • "it's been good to have some time to focus on myself"
  • "This has been one of the best things that I have done and I hope to continue with it always"

Yarnfulness - mindfulness, but with yarn - 1-5pm - Stirling

Coorie Creative, The Thistles Shopping Centre, Goosecroft Rd, Stirling, FK8 2EA, United Kingdom
Sat 05 Feb 2022
£67.50
--View Description--

Yarnfulness - it's mindfulness, but with yarn. Weave a meditation cushion whilst practising mindfulness - complete novices are welcome. Yarnfulness - a brand new event, which combines the art of weaving with a mindfulness practice . Two therapeutic practices, combined together over the course of an afternoon.


Over the four hours you will be introduced to zen weaving on beautiful hand-weaving looms. Full instruction will be given for the weaving, and for the mindfulness, so you can be a complete beginner at one or both, although those with experience are also welcome.


The looms will be set up for you in advance, you'll be able to choose from a range of yarns - wool, organic cotton or Tencel (the vegan alternative to silk) - and will be able to see which colours you feel inspired to work with. Weaving is a mindfulness practice in itself, and we will also have the chance to stop and tune in with our breath, and bring all of our senses into play whilst we're weaving. The mindfulness practices will engage with the gentle rhythm of hand-weaving, adding to the feeling of relaxation and being at one with the loom.


By the end of the session you will have produced a piece of beautiful cloth to sew up and use as a meditation cushion.

There are only 6 spaces for this workshop, so our advice is to book quickly! We have a subsidised space - no questions asked, just offer what you can - please only take this if you would not otherwise be able to come.


Refreshments are included, please let us know of any dietary requirements.
