Take time out for some quiet time together
Mindfulness is a way of calming the mind and creating a sense of peacefulness. Practising Mindfulness helps us be in the moment, to focus on enjoying what we are doing without our minds throwing in random thoughts and feelings. Mindfulness sessions are currently on hold while we search for a new host, they will resume soon!
In meditation, I can let go of everything. I’m not Hugh Jackman. I’m not a dad. I’m not a husband. I’m just dipping into that powerful source that creates everything. I take a little bath in it.

We all know that to stay
physically healthy we need our
5 A Day minimum of 400g
of fruit and vegetables.
At The Bee Tree Community
we also believe in 4 A Day;
to maintain our overall wellbeing
we need to pay attention to
not only our physical health,
but our emotional, mental
and spiritual health too:

The host begins the session with a check in. They then use a series of questions designed to encourage members to take this time to focus on themselves; who they are, how they are, ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. They encourage the use of journalling as part of an onging exploration of the self. Members are welcome to share as much or as little as they feel like. In the final part of the session the host will lead members through a mindfulness exercise.
For the session you will need your laptop or mobile device and session zoom link, a quiet uninterrupted space to sit or lie down, and a notepad and pen.
The host will lead the session, so you get to just be there and relax and think about yourself, to explore your thoughts and feelings and share if you want to. For the mindfulnness exercise the host will ask you to turn off the camera and microphone on your computer (this means you can hear them but no-one can hear or see you.) You will then get yourself comfortable, and listen to the host as they talk you through a short relaxation. You may even fall asleep!
MINDFULNESS WILL RESUME ONCE IT HAS A NEW HOST!
