Nourish the body & mind, plus develop
ease and relaxation in being with Dr Sue Jackson
Monthly Meditation Mini-Retreats
Fridays 10am – 12noon
Held once a month on a Friday morning, these guided meditation sessions will offer a mini-retreat atmosphere to participants. Relaxation and restoration will be over-arching aims of these sessions.
Over the course of the year, participants will be guided through practices that help to nourish body and mind. Themed sessions will focus on incorporating principles from iRest yoga nidra, mindfulness, Flow psychology, and restorative yoga. Practices will help develop ease and relaxation in being. Relaxation is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, fatigue, and sleep disturbance. Sessions provide an opportunity to unwind, reset, and re-energise in a retreat-like setting.
These Friday morning sessions will be held between 10am – 12noon, at a lovely yoga and meditation studio in Upper Brookfield. Owned and run by Celia Roberts, this stunning studio provides a natural, light-filled sanctuary in the western suburbs of Brisbane. A variety of meditation and yoga props will be available to help participants relax body and mind through the guided meditation practices.
