During your session
The mindfulness experts in our community use evidence-based approaches, perfectly balancing the theory of stress and distraction with practical tools like meditation. Over a two-way video call, they’ll chat with you about your present mood and goals for the session, before introducing the principles of mindfulness so you can work to cultivate the state more often.
Once you’ve found a comfy place to sit down and lean back, they’ll guide you (or simply let silence guide you) into a meditative state, giving you space and time to observe your thoughts and feelings. Depending on your goals, they may also introduce breathing, mental noting or visualisation techniques.
Towards the end of your session they’ll gently invite you to open your eyes and return to the room, before chatting with you about your experience. They may also suggest anchoring and mental noting techniques you can use to return to mindfulness in your day-to-day.
You don’t need any equipment to join in, other than your laptop or phone. You may want to hop into loose clothing so you’re as comfortable as possible, and find a supportive place to sit.
