Exploring Mindfulness

Join Crescentia Cook on a 8 week exploration of Mindfulness. Studies have shown that practising mindfulness can improve mood, improve sleep quality and reduce stress.

Crescentia Cook is an ICF ACC qualified coach and a Skilfulminds meditation leader. Crescentia started meditating in 2005, and in 2019 she decided to train to be a Meditation Leader, She found that her clients attending her meditation sessions needed support in handling stress, sleep, and self-esteem issues so she decided to train as a coach so that she could support them better. Crescentia Specialises as a Well-being, life, and business coach who helps people move from stress to success by using techniques that include breathwork, meditation, and tapping. She loves helping people find calm in their lives as well, as reaching for their stars.

Each session will include:
– A short breathing exercise to ground and calm you
– Some gentle stretches for the shoulders and neck
– A review of how you have got on with any self-practice
– Journaling questions for you to reflect on the topic for the week
– Finishing with a longer meditation of 5 to 10 minutes

We will look at:

  • Wednesday 25th May – How negativity affects our life
  • Wednesday 1st June – Letting go of control
  • Wednesday 8th June – Making boundaries work
  • Wednesday 15th June – I am

Further info:

  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Please bring a pen and paper for journaling and a blanket to keep you warm during the meditation
  • Meditations can be performed sitting or lying down

For the comfort and safety of everyone joining our online groups we have a few room rules we ask everyone to observe.

  • Try and arrive on time for the start of the session if you can, if you do join late please mute yourself on entry to avoid disturbing others.
  • In general it makes for a better group experience if people can see each other, but do feel free to turn your video camera off if you are not feeling up to being visible that day
  • Make yourself comfortable and join the meeting from your favourite cosy space, but if your video camera is on, please check what can be seen by others. Although pyjamas are fine if you’re currently bed-bound, do dress in a way that is appropriate for a group gathering.
  • Please keep yourself on mute unless you are talking, especially when there may be distracting noises in the background.
  • Take part in discussions and question-and-answer sessions, if you want to, but please listen to others and help the meeting host to ensure everyone has time to speak if they wish. The group lead may suggest using the hands up icon or typing questions into
    the chat box.
  • If group participants share personal stories and sensitive information, please treat this as confidential and avoid disclosing anything outside of the group without their permission.
  • Should a group participant share information that raises a concern for their personal safety, we will follow this up privately in line with our safeguarding responsibilities.
  • Technical failures and internet problems are quite common with online platforms, if the facilitator or another participant experiences problems please be understanding.
  • In the unlikely event that a group participant says or does something inappropriate in a session, we will immediately remove them from the room and may take further action.

Thank you.
