About the event

This event combines both meditation and a social get-together. Both types of event are beneficial for your mental well-being, so come and relax your mind first. Then let your hair down with other like-minded people under the influence of a mocktail or two! There will be no alcohol at this event.

£20

The venue is based just by St. Nicholas Primary School and behind Asda and is wheelchair friendly. Information on what to bring to the event will be provided closer to the date.

Both meditation and social interaction can benefit your mind, body and soul. For more information on how this is possible, please continue reading:

Mental health benefits of meditation and social interaction

Most people are likely familiar with the positive side effects of meditation associated with mental health: increased awareness, clarity, compassion, and a sense of calm. Improved focus is another benefit commonly associated with meditation. In fact, one study showed that 4 weeks of doing daily meditation can increase focus by 14%, while another showed that just a single session cuts mind-wandering by 22%.

This article shows how social interaction is good for you: https://www.southuniversity.edu/news-and-blogs/2018/05/why-being-social-is-good-for-you it quotes a study that shows that individuals who participated in social or community activities were more likely to report good or very good health.

But there are even more ways meditation can benefit the mind. In a study researchers from John Hopkins University found general meditation programs helped ease psychological symptoms of depression, anxiety, and pain related to stress. A published study conducted at Google and Roche, had similar results: participants reported a 46% reduction in depression and a 31% reduction in anxiety.

That’s not all... another study showed that 30 days of meditation resulted in an 11% increase in mental resilience. What’s more, people who used meditation for just 10 days experienced a 7.5% increase in satisfaction with life. It’s clear that regularly setting aside a few minutes — even one minute — to let go, breathe, and recharge, can go a long way to improve health.
