Julie’s next scheduled event is an eight week course on mindfulness & meditation course.
If you’re interested in booking Julie to run a workshop or course for your own group or a group of friends, email Julie on firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can read details of each of the events Julie runs below.
Based on the centuries-old Zen practice of meditation
The word Zen is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the Middle Chinese word 禪 (dʑjen) (pinyin: Chán), which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyāna, which can be approximately translated as “absorption” or “meditative state“.
Mindfulness Part 1 | The Six Senses
The vagus nerve is key to holistic well-being, particularly to ensure the organs function properly.
The incorrect function of the vagus nerve is almost always at play for those with fatigue, food sensitivities, anxiety, gut problems, brain-fog and depression.
Mindfulness can be tricky for those who have experienced trauma, due to the reaction of the vagus nerve and its consequential effect on the body, particularly the organs, and is commonly associated with auto-immune illnesses.
We will use the six senses through the practice of;
- Yoga Nidra
- finger painting (yes, really!)
- creation of your own personal room spray, based on your moon sign
Mindfulness Part 2 | The Practice
follow on from my Part One workshop and allows us to dip our toe into a Mindfulness practice and focus the mind, whilst using our awakened senses and opening the mind to the beauty around us.
In Part Two we use a combination of mindful activities:
- Chanting (with crystal bowls)
- Yoga Nidra
- Creating your own personalised incense
- Mindful movement
- The mindful art activity of Zentagles from which you will each be given a reading.
It is recommended that you do my Part One workshop before taking Part Two but it’s not essential.
