Manchester Let’s Meditate
Monday, 8 February 2021
We are so pleased to be taking part in Manchester Let’s Meditate – February 2021.
Our home city of Manchester may have been devastated by the Covid pandemic, but it’s spirit and sense of togetherness never fades. This event aims to bring people together online across the city to share in a unique experience. An event to support the people of Manchester, no matter what age, background or religion.
Everyone is welcome. You don’t even need to be from Manchester.
We hope you will join us?
What’s the science bit?
There is peer reviewed research which points to the wider social impact of meditation. It’s called the 1% factor and states that one person meditating regularly will have an impact on the wellbeing and positive outlook of 100 others. So imagine what could happen in Manchester if we got 100’s of people meditating together?
Read what others are saying about beanddo Modern Meditation
I’ve been into personal and professional development for years but something wasn’t clicking. I’m impatient, I’m committed to my goals, and I knew I could do better. It was frustrating. I liked beanddo’s practice from day 1. This is important. I didn’t go into it expecting a “boom” moment. It was just nice to sit inside my head and be still for a while. So I kept doing it.This is one of the things that differentiates beanddo Modern Meditation.
It’s so accessible. There are no abstract hippy concepts. The teachers provide clear instructions. They describe the sensations in the body and what to look out for. These are real things; the tingling sensation of directed attention and the space of growing awareness is universal. Ok, so this was a small “boom” moment: odd little thoughts and feelings that I was having are universal and important… Maybe I should listen to myself more often. So I did. After a few sessions, I noticed that my head was clearer.
I was more certain and confident in decision making. A lot of the unimportant noise that takes up brain space was falling away (god that was nice). I was generally in a better mood. Was it just the meditation? Who knows, but I kept on doing it. My creativity increased; ideas for work and personal projects came fizzing up. I can literally chart the change in my diary from the month following the practice. I’m not saying they were all great ideas but they got me excited about and doing stuff that I’d been in a rut with for ages.
