Mindfulness: Moment to Moment
A specially designed training course for youth workers and those who work with young people in the non-formal education setting.
Moment to Moment
Just this moment, not the one that has passed, not the one that is to come, but just… This Moment…
The National Youth Health Programme and the Sanctuary are offering the following training course on Mindfulness and meditative techniques. The aim of the course is to assist youth workers to use mindfulness in their personal lives, and their work practice with young people.
You must first experience stillness and bring it into your own life,
before you can offer it to others - Abraham Maslow
The training course will be delivered over 4 days.
Facilitated by: Niamh Bruce and Brother Richard
This Training Course is designed with the world of young people in mind and the fast pace of life we all experience today. It is based on the successful techniques used by the Sanctuary over the years.
This course is experiential. Participants will:
- Be taken through various meditative exercises ranging from simple sensory awareness to basic forms of meditation across different world traditions and emerging scientific fields.
- Learn techniques that can be used in the out of school setting and with young people of varying ability.
- Be provided with a toolkit to help build and experience sanctuary in daily life.
The training is held in the beautiful surroundings of the Sanctuary which is a meditation centre in Dublin city. www.sanctuary.ie
The staff of the Sanctuary, have worked with young people and those with whom they work with since 2005. The Sanctuary believes that everyone – the child, the teenager and the adult – can access this place of stillness within themselves, and once it is part of their consciousness its potential for their well-being and the well-being of society is huge.
