Meditation and Relaxation for persistent Pain

May 23, 2017 @ 12:00 am - 2:00 pm

Tuross-1 cropped reversed

Not sure if meditation is for you? What if it is called relaxation or quiet sitting? Does pain interfere with any type of relaxing? … Come along and explore various techniques; you can either participate or just listen.

We will be doing a very short relaxation session.  You can ask questions, or comment on your meditation practice or difficulty relaxing. A longer meditation will complete the session. Sit, stand, lie down as you wish; if lying, bring a blanket/cushion if possible.

Suzanne Newnham has been teaching various styles of meditation since 1988. From a life-time of chronic pain of varying degrees, she has developed a variety of meditative techniques for people experiencing chronic pain.

 

WHERE:  Pearce Community Centre, Shout Office Building 1, 1 Collett Place, Pearce ACT (Canberra)

BYO: Your lunch if you’d like to have it at the event.  Coffee and tea will be available.
