The Mindful Delinquent – daring to ‘do it’ just a little bit badly!
20 June @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm£10.00
The Mindful Delinquent. Imperfect, reluctant, renegade meditator, mindfulness teacher and coach, writer, speaker and advocate of acknowledging a rarely spoken-out-loud-in-public truth: practising mindfulness meditation, or any meditation come to that, can initially feel just a little bit crap. There, I said it; I feel cleansed.
It’s hard for us to sit still and do nothing full stop – let alone meditate and turn our attention towards our internal experience. This is especially true when we are experiencing stress and physical or emotional pain; we are hard-wired not to go there.
So here’s our human pickle. When we can’t find solace and refuge within, we are doomed in perpetuity to seek our answers externally; chasing that ‘thing’ that will make us happy, soothe us and fill that gaping hole in the soul. And when we do get a glimpse, it doesn’t last. Oh dear.
So, what’s the answer? Well, Mindfulness is not a cure all, it will not grow back a limb and sadly we are unlikely to be merging with the divine anytime soon. Yet it does offer us a kind and precise method with which to hold this human experience. We sort of get okay …….. and most importantly, we get okay with not being okay.
Why not join me, the Mindful Delinquent, 7.30pm on 20th June at the Shelley Theatre for an evening of all matters mindful, funny stories and some short skilful mindfulness techniques thrown in for good measure!
