Are you....

Curious about mindfulness?

Muddled as to where to start?

Interested to see how it might be helpful?

UCD in the Community are currently offering two ways in which you can practice mindfulness: Mindful Mondays and Introduction to Mindfulness 5 week course

Click below to find out more  

Introduction to Mindfulness

Classes will take place on Wednesdays from 5.30-7pm. Starting Wednesday 16 Nov 2022 until Wednesday 14 December 2022. The class each week will be one and a half hours long 5.30-7pm. There is also 30 minutes of home practice every day in between classes in your own time.

The course will be run by Aoife Fitzgerald, Msc Mindfulness-Based Interventions, UCD in the Community.

Mindful Mondays

All UCD staff are welcome to come along. Some Mindfulness or meditation experience would be helpful but not necessary. Although this is not a mindfulness class, there will be some time at the end for questions.
We will come together online as a group and you are welcome to have your camera on or off - whatever feels most comfortable. Aoife Fitzgerald will guide a live mindfulness meditation for the group each week. There is no requirement to book in advance, just turn up.

Continuning from the success of the December mindful Mondays, Aoife Fitzgerald will continue to offer live guided meditation online on Monday evenings from 8.30pm - 9pm starting Monday 9th January 2023. Classes are offered on a "drop in" basis with the idea that this would be a slot in the week for you to step out of the 'doing mode' and join a group online for 30 minutes of mindfulness with no expectation to attend every week. 

It is known that we need to keep a regular practice in order to strengthen the muscle of the mind but sustaining a practice on our own can be quite challenging. Many people find it supportive to practice as part of a weekly group, though finding time can be tricky. This is an opportunity to give structure and support to your practice without the need to travel outside of your home. Whether you have fallen off the practice wagon, or maybe you just want to support or enhance your current practice, this might work well for you.

It would be really great to see you there.
