Class Details & Schedule
 
What Is Covered

Each Unified Mindfulness class includes instructions on how to practice followed by two guided meditations.

In each mindfulness class practical techniques are shared and we map our sensory experience throughout the session.

We establish an understanding for our actions, observe them during a guided meditation, and then mindfully reflect on how we view those actions post-meditation.

These mindfulness sessions are interactive and inquiry-based and support visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learners.

A class generally includes :

  • Introduction to class theme – the connection between theme and meditation.
  • Guided Meditation (15min) – on 3 core skills of sensory clarity, concentration power & equanimity.
  • Guided Meditation (15min) – focusing on class theme.
  • Noting & Sharing – our meditation experiences.
  • Focus on posture – practice connection with meditation.

Potential Outcomes

Through regular and consistent practice of the Unified Mindfulness approach, we may experience an untangling of our sensory perceptions whilst living.

This can lead to greater :

  • Sensory clarity – the ability to track and explore our senses in real time making joyful experiences more vivid and difficult experiences less overwhelming.
  • Concentration Power – the ability to focus on what we choose at any time we choose (selective attention).
  • Equanimity – the ability to allow our sensory experience to come and go, without push and pull leading to increased joy and less overwhelm and ongoing maturing of our spiritual nature.
  • Tranquillity – caused by a reduction in compulsive behaviours associated with lack of concentration, lack of sensory clarity and lack of equanimity in daily life.
  • Resilience – due to increased equanimity in facing the ups and downs of living.

Session Facilitator

Bernadette Lenzo’s personal practice and teaching is based on the Unified Mindfulness system developed by Shinzen Young.

She practices to deepen her sense of connection to sensory experience which enables her to think clearly and respond mindfully to all the situations in her life.

Through daily practice, study and coaching in the system of Unified Mindfulness, Bernadette has noticed accelerated benefits for her health and wellbeing. She regularly participates in meditation retreats, home retreats included.

Bernadette also reads and practices outside the Unified Mindfulness system in studies of consciousness. This gives her practice breadth and provides her insight into her own life and the potential practices and experiences of her students.
