MEDITATION

WHAT CAN IT DO FOR YOU?

a drop-in group led by Ramsey Margolis

Thursdays 7:30–8:30pm
Just 50m from the Hataitai Village shops

Perhaps you’ve

  • Heard about the benefits of mindfulness, and wonder where to start, or

  • Perhaps you meditate from time to time, and would like a regular practice, or

  • Maybe you’ve tasted some of the fruits of the practice, and want a refresher

But is mindfulness just the latest fad, or is there more to it? Here’s your chance to find out. You’ll be introduced to secular meditation practice, have your questions on meditation answered, and get tips on how to make it a habit, like brushing your teeth.

No booking necessary, just turn up – you won’t be expected to convert to a new religion, there are no funny postures to adopt, and no odd beliefs to accept.

◼ WHAT TO BRING
We’ll be sitting on chairs. If you think you could get cold, you may wish to bring a shawl or a blanket. Oh, and it helps to bring an open mind.
