Mobile Community Meditation will operate out of a converted mini bus; offering a beautiful and peaceful space for free meditation sessions. The project will offer guided meditations sessions to schools, clubs and hospitals in Brunswick and surrounding areas.
The sessions will be run by an experienced meditation teacher and supported by the Melbourne Buddhist Centre. The sessions will have up to 10 participants and focus on different topics including: mindfulness, compassion and stress management.
This secular program will be adapted for different ages and needs and welcoming to individuals of any gender or culture.
Community members are exposed to copious challenges and stressors in daily life. Mindfulness and meditation has been shown to improve health and happiness.
The “breathing space” created in the meditation bus will allow participants to experience a range of potential benefits of meditation such as: reduced stress and anxiety, enhanced concentration and emotional regulation, and pain relief. Meditation helps us to develop greater calm and engage more fully with life.
This project is expected to result in tangible improvements in our participants as they transition to improved wellbeing and will positively impact the broader community.
