Eva Bruha with James Baraz
In this 6-week course you will be introduced to Loving Kindness Meditation - a practice that is calming the mind and bringing peace and insight to the heart. The practice is done with mindful awareness, so that we are not pretending to be different than we are, but we're exploring a kinder attitude towards ourselves and others.
The sessions will be relaxing and informative, maybe even transformative.
Also suitable for anyone who wants to further explore and deepen the practice of mindfulness after having done the MBSR course or an introduction course in mindfulness.
6 Thursday evenings, 7.30 - 9pm, starting February 8th.

We meet every other Wednesday morning: May 2nd, May 16th, May 30th, June 13th, June 27th,
This is a new course and it is for you if you are 55 years old or (much) older and interested in bringning awareness to your ageing process.
Although we consider ourselves lucky when we get older in more or less good health, there are still many situations we have not experienced before. Many topics that are worthwhile discussing and reflecting for ourselves and together in a safe and peaceful environement. We will approach the different areas with mindful curiosity, reflecting, sharing and using mindful breathing to enhance inner calm and balance when we encounter something challenging. We will reflect about the physical and mental ageing, life circumstances that force us to let go in different ways, the loss of friends and relatives, maybe downsizing, caring for oneself and others in new ways, living alone or with an ageing partner, regrets about the past, worries about the future, anxieties about finances, the prospect of becoming more frail, thoughts about dying.
Fee for 5-week course in Tralee: € 90, can be paid in instalments, reduced if the fee is a hardship
