In these sessions we focus on the Buddha's Four Foundations of Mindfulness: mindfulness of body, feelings, thoughts and mental states. The benefits of being mindful are immense.  Mindfulness helps keep the mind and body healthy, it helps maintain calmness and helps with the focus on wholesome mind states. These qualities are not only of benefit to us, but the benefits flow to others we come into contact with.

Sama has 25 years experience in the practice of meditation.
