Beach Meditation in Deal
Do you enjoy being in Nature sitting quietly by the sea?
Every Friday morning from 7:30-8:15am we meditate on Deal beach opposite the Paddling Pool and Cedars surgery (CT14 7DN) watching the sunrise.
Our what3words address is: ///timing.brands.expert
If you prefer to join us on Zoom, please arrive by 7.25AM.
We do a simple mindfulness practice where we tune into our breathing and become aware of the elements around us, the wind on our skin, the warmth of the sun and the solidity of the earth beneath us.
No experience is necessary and everyone is welcome. We will be there rain or shine so please bring warm clothes and something to sit on.
For more information, contact Prajnasisya (aka Marilyn) on 07952 882470.
