Just this moment, not the one that has passed, not the one that is to come, but just… This Moment…
The Moment to Moment is a specially designed training course for youth workers and those who work with young people in the non-formal education setting to explore mindfulness and learn meditative techniques. The course is facilitated over 5 days by The Sanctuary in partnership with The National Youth Health Programme.
The Moment-to-Moment training aims to equip you to mediate yourself, and to familiarise yourself with techniques for using mindfulness with the young people you work with. The training is about introducing the practice of mindfulness into your life so that, at time, you can live on a moment to moment basis. Not in the past, not in the future, but just in this moment whatever that moment may be. We believe that introducing this into your own life will have an effect on the young people you are working with. In fact, we feel it is essential that it is brought into your own life before you will be able to bring it to anyone else.
This course is experiential. Participants will:
- Be taken through various meditative exercises ranging from simple sensory awareness to basic forms of meditation across different world traditions and emerging scientific fields.
- Learn techniques that can be used in the out of school setting and with young people of varying ability.
- Be provided with a toolkit to help build and experience sanctuary in daily life.
