10 for Connection
Join Rosie and the Classes for the Mind community for a one month meditation and wellbeing program. 10 for Connection is about cultivating a sustainable, daily practice alongside a supportive community.
Over four weeks and five group sessions we will explore meditation independently, and as a community. There are wide ranging benefits to meditation, some of which include deepening self-understanding, regulating mood and anxiety, improving sleep, increasing your ability to make conscious choices, and helping you to be more present in your relationships.
The core values of this program are: joy, curiosity, non-judgement, compassion and community.
To cultivate a personal practice throughout this course, you will be invited to meditate for 10 minutes every day. We will explore what meditation means to you, and you are welcome to choose the form/s of meditation that will nourish you most. As we progress through the month you will be invited to engage with some longer meditations.
Week 1: Monday 4th Oct 6pm
Week 2: Monday 11th Oct 6pm
Week 3: Monday 18th Oct 6pm
Week 4: Monday 25th Oct 6pm
Week 5: Monday 1st Nov 6pm
Each week we will land together through meditation, share our challenges, strengths and insights that arose through the previous week, and explore a new theme in relation to meditation and wellbeing. These meetings will be a key point of connection and motivation, and will include gentle psychoeducation and references to yogic philosophy. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to consider your lifestyle more broadly, with meditation as one part of a balanced lifestyle.
