Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation.
Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
The theme of this week's Gathering is 'Mindful of Happiness'. It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. We lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling, and live 'in our heads' – caught up in our thoughts without noticing how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour. Today, we’ll explore the proven benefits of mindfulness: focusing on the present moment, our own thoughts and feelings, and the world around us. We’ll consider how this approach can gradually transform our wellbeing, creating lasting happiness.
