After 9 years of teaching FREE, WEEKLY meditation classes, I have finally handed it over to one of my students, Rose, who I know will do an amazing job. The meditation program ran for 50 weeks each year with a break at Christmas and New Year. It was my way of giving back to the community that has been my home for the past 20 years. Many people passed through the program, some came for just one or two classes some came regularly. All who came learnt not only how to meditate but also how to change their self-talk and manage their worry and anxiety.
I am sure that I will continue teaching meditation on-line and I am in the process of figuring out what exactly that will look like. But for now I am enjoying having freed up a weekday evening that had been a standing commitment for the past 9 years. I will miss teaching meditation, but at the same time, I am excited about what I will do instead? Perhaps it's time not to do anything, but just chill...
