Meditation and Mindful Living
Nottingham Mindfulness Group is a local group for anyone interested in Mindfulness, either as a form of spiritual practice or as a practical technique for living a better, calmer, more focussed and more productive life. The group holds regular, weekly meetings which offer (in a friendly, relaxed and informal atmosphere) the opportunity to learn about Mindfulness, to try-out some Mindfulness techniques and various methods of Mindfulness meditation, plus the chance to meet and get to know other people who are interested in Mindfulness, or in meditation in general.
The weekly meetings include talks by guest speakers, periods of Mindfulness meditation, film and video presentations, information about Mindfulness events, classes and courses that are happening locally, and the opportunity to get to know other members of the group in an easy, relaxed way over refreshments. All are welcome and membership is free. These meetings are casual and "open", and they provide an opportunity to encounter Mindfulness in an easy and straightforward way. Meetings take place every week in the heart of the Nottingham city centre.
Our regular open meetings are designed to share information about Mindfulness and to offer the opportunity to experience and practice Mindful meditation. These open meetings are not structured to form a progressive course or formal training in Mindfulness, and they do not, in and of themselves, constitute a "Mindfulness-Based" therapy (such as MBSR or MBCT). We publish and promote full details of the formal classes and courses in Mindfulness and "Mindfulness-Based" therapies that are available in Nottingham and the wider East Midlands – please ask us for a free copy of this information if it would be of interest to you.
Mindfulness and other forms of meditation are safe and appropriate practices for the vast majority of people and they are proven to offer a wide range of benefits, including the lowering of stress and deep levels of relaxation. Current research indicates that all forms of meditation (including Mindfulness) may be unwise for people with bipolar vulnerability or those who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) unless it is undertaken with clinical supervision. If you are currently receiving treatment for any form of mental health issue (or have received such treatment in the recent past, or have reason to believe that you might need such treatment), you should consult your doctor or health care professional before engaging with Mindfulness or any form of meditation.
