First Mindfulness Meditation Learning Sessions (MMLS)

Friday, 15th June 2018

In January 2017,  in collaboration with NHS Grampian Multicultural Health and Wellbeing Forum, the Varapunya Meditation Centre led free Mindfulness Meditation sessions to staff and members of the public at the Aberdeen Health Village every last Monday of the month.

A year later, a review took place, and feedback told us that there are significant people wanting to learn more and develop their practice further and become more skilled in meditation practice.

This was made possible through funding from the NHS Grampian Endowment Fund, and by the dedication and commitment from Varapunya meditation centre, Ajahn Sujan and David Briggs develop a six week module at the Credo Centre in Aberdeen. The programme was capped at 16 and successfully completed this summer.

We will be runner next one in September 2018. Contact for further detail. 

Interfaith Meditation Day

Friday, 15th June 2018

We were ably led by Ajahn Sujan on a mindful walk; sung to by Rebecca Dunn, led in meditation by Caroline Cormack, Kate Kindness and Nigel Dower and led by Bozana in discussion about the meaning of love.

On a beautiful summer’s day we walked silently connecting with the environment, merging with nature as one and noticing the sounds of birds, wind in the trees and the smallest things below our feet – a toadstool, a butterfly, which we are usually too busy to notice. Sujan compared the wind and our minds as we thought about how we know they exist and are there.

Mindfulness Mondays Feedback 2017

Thursday, 29th March 2018

 

The NHS Grampian Multicultural Health and Wellbeing Forum are working collaboratively with the Varapunya Meditation Centre and colleagues in the Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership to bring free Mindfulness Sessions to NHS staff and members of the public on the last Monday of each month. Mindfulness Monday was launched in January 2017.

The sessions are delivered by Ven Sujan who is an experienced Buddhist Monk from Nepal, and David Briggs who is an experienced practitioner. Sujan has been involved with the NHS Grampian Multicultural Forum since the Forum began in 2015. By adopting an Asset Based approach to the work of the Multicultural Forum, we have been able to create a space which allows members to share the skills and assets in the group and look at how we can work collaboratively to ensure that those skills and assets have the opportunity to develop and grow.
