Join us at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds on Saturday 4 March 10:30- 17:00 for a peaceful day of guided mindfulness meditation practice.

The workshop, led by qualified mindfulness teacher Ken Lunn will cover the key techniques covered in the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme at JBCL.

It is not necessary to have attended those sessions to participate in this workshop and all are welcome if you have some basic experience of meditation and are looking to develop or refresh your practice.

Over the course of the day there will be a mixture of guided meditations, relaxation, movement and readings. The day will consist of two sessions, each for 2 and a half hours and lunch will be held in silence. Please bring your own vegetarian food for lunch.

Please email smile@jamyangleeds.co.uk to confirm a place. Suggested donation £25

About the teacher:

Ken Lunn is an experienced meditator and qualified mindfulness teacher with over 20 years of practice that has supported a successful career in business and the public sector (in research and development, IT consultancy, senior management and university teaching) with raising a family. Meditation helped Ken recover from a long period of acute stress, to manage difficult personal circumstances over a number of years, and later to re-engage with a high-profile career managing large teams, complex technical services and programmes of work. The application of mindfulness in a real world context informs Ken’s practice and teaching on both a personal and professional level. He has a MA in Mindfulness-Based Approaches from Bangor University Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice.

“It was always my aspiration to teach some form of meditation, and the emergence of mindfulness as a health and well being intervention is exciting; the opportunity to teach techniques that I have found supportive is very fulfilling.”
