End of Year Reflection and Relaxation
With 2019 (soon!) coming to an end, join us for an evening of reflection and relaxation!
Journaling – Affirmations – Yoga Nidra Meditation – Bliss Balls and Chai Tea!
Date: 22nd November
Location: Riverdell Spiritual Centre (in the Sanctuary)
Cost: $25 per person
An essential element of reflection and relaxation is kindness – in particular, kindness towards yourself.
We can be so hard on ourselves…especially living in the busy world that we do.
Meeting the demands of our job, caring for loved ones around us and simply trying to do our best.
This is a chance to draw our attention inwards with curiosity, humility, mindfulness and gratitude. Some of our best learnings can take place in a supportive, relaxed and caring environment.
Science has suggested that affirmations and journaling can enhance our everyday performance, improvements in mood, stress levels and depressive symptoms.
For this evening, there is nothing to do and nothing to be.
Arrive just as you are and leave the evening feeling lighter, refreshed and inspired.
Let us come together for a mindful evening in which we’ll touch on…
- Short journaling prompts that we’ll work through as a group, all designed to spark reflection and gratitude for 2019, as well as setting intention for 2020 (all resources provided)
- Working with affirmations to spark positive change
- A relaxing, guided deep-sleep meditation (Yoga Nidra)
- Complimentary bliss balls and chai tea!
Our Yoga Nidra Meditation is a deep sleep guided meditation and one of the easiest practices to do. It is said that just 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 3 hours of sleep!
This meditation will incorporate a body scan, breath awareness, balancing emotional states, visualization and self-healing. Benefits of practicing Yoga Nidra meditation include balancing the nervous system, increasing production of endorphins (the hormones of happiness!), stress relief, aiding with anxiety, headaches, insomnia, chronic fatigue and more.
Please dress comfortable, bring along a blanket for your comfort and a drink bottle.
We will have yoga mats, bolsters and cushions available. All materials (pens, affirmation cards, etc) will be provided on the night and serve as wonderful resources for you to take home!
