Practicing regularly enables the experience of Open Mindfulness to unfold gradually. It benefits us in our daily life, be it at the professional, social or inter-personal level. And we can discover gradually new benefits as integration operates stage by stage over time.
Just to have a weekly appointment and to attend it is a support as such. In our urban surroundings, we can easily be caught up again in a rapid rhythm, a just-in-time life approach, our usual mental habits… and training at home can quickly unravel.
Group practice is done in an inspiring environment that fosters a peace and stillness that is favorable to the experience of the whole group.
Sharing the same practice with a group is stimulating and supports each and everyone in their own practice experience.
It enables “changing on the spot”, i.e. flowing with changing situations. Open Mindfulness becomes part of one’s interior experience and develops contact with others.
It is possible to get Open Mindfulness training in Avalon all year round either on a collective or individual retreat basis. A personal follow-up plan is also possible upon request. Participants can integrate Open Mindfulness in their daily activities as well.
In urban settings, the Open Mindfulness practice groups offer sessions of secular meditation practice.
Taking part to such a group creates a motivation, a self-discipline that makes it possible to stick with the Open Mindfulness practice. It enables participants to re-discover the different practice schemes, share their experience, get support and coaching to overcome any obstacle that may arise.
