Mindfulness and Meditation Workshop 19.10.2017 - 22.10.2017. This 4-day workshop is a space for the cultivation of mindfulness. Mindfulness is a quality that allows us to engage with our lives more fully, to relate to ourselves and others in more kind ways, to identify and nurture what is valuable for each of us, and to live and enjoy more deeply the present moment. The workshop is designed for participants to develop skillful attitudes towards our everyday lives, through observations from our own direct experience. Integral part of this workshop are gentle meditation sits and creative "tasks", involving awareness of the senses, the use of the body and the discerning faculty of the mind. The workshop also encourages a deeper appreciation for the stillness and beauty of nature. Large population-based research studies have indicated that the practice of mindfulness is strongly correlated with greater well-being and perceived health!
Misha del Val is a daily meditation practicioner. He offers mindfulness meditation sessions free of cost weekly in Sirkka and Köngäs since 2015.
