The Brisbane Mindfulness Practice Group meets weekly at The Centre.
Our practice is to come back, to be aware of to our breath and body and by practicing as a Sangha (a community) we generate a collective energy that nourishes peace and joy in our selves and in the world around us.
The Brisbane Mindfulness Practice Group follows the practices of the Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh. The Sangha’s practices include sitting and walking meditation, mindfulness movements, Dharma study, reciting the 5 Mindfulness Trainings, deep relaxation, and sharing mindfulness practice in discussion.
The Mindfulness Group meets on Thursdays from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Warner Hall (52 Merthyr Road, New Farm) and welcomes everyone to share the practice of mindfulness meditation with them.
