6 Wednesday mornings, 11am to 12.30pm, Dates: Oct 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, Nov 7th and 14th (no class Oct 31st)
This new course, recently designed by Eva Bruha, is now offered again after the successful first one taught in Tralee before the summer.
It is for you if you are 55 years old or (much) older and interested in bringing awareness to the aging 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.
Every class is started by a 15 minute guided mindfulness meditation to calm down body and mind.
Fee for 6-week course in Tralee: € 120, can be paid in instalments.
Location: All Therapie Centre, 21 Rock Street Tralee
To sign up: contact Eva at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 087-2712662. A deposit of € 30 to secure your participation in the course has to be sent in.
