REMEMBERING THE PRESENT

A mindfulness workshop at the Brisbane Bridge Centre
Saturday 15 - Sunday 16 October 2016

This workshop will introduce you to the ancient practice and contemporary application of mindfulness. Mindful bodywork will enable us to cultivate a sense of physical ease. As we learn to relax physically, we will be well placed to address our psychological stress through mindfulness techniques. A renewed sense of personal wellbeing will be foundational for enhancing our interpersonal relationships, as we learn to apply mindfulness to our family and professional lives.

Lunch is provided, along with morning and afternoon tea. Participants should wear loose and comfortable clothing. Free parking is available.

When: 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. 15-16 October 2016

Where: 104 Frederick Street Annerley Qld 4103

Fees: Early bird $350 (for those who pay by 22 September 2016); $400 after early bird.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT PATRICK'S TEACHING

"Patrick Kearney is the best mindfulness teacher it has been my experience to work with. I appreciate the depth of his insights into the Buddha’s teaching, meanings that have resonated with me personally. Few teachers can help smooth a student’s own experience with mindfulness practice as he does. Last, and hardly least, Patrick has a huge heart, and this manifests in all his teachings. I cannot recommend a workshop with Patrick Kearney highly enough."

"As a Business Coach/Consultant, Mindfulness Practice has enabled me a significant clarity of mind in decision making for my own business decisions and those of my clients. It has also facilitated a greater insight into my own business and personal purpose, develop a greater empathy for others, and has been a significant help in growing my emotional intelligence. These traits have enhanced my leadership capability.

"I have worked with Patrick over a 6 year period and his lifetime of knowledge and experience enables him to deliver his Mindfulness training and coaching in a simple, concise, and practical way."

"Patrick has been my teacher and Mindfulness guide for many years now. Drawing on a rich and complex breath of knowledge, both as a practitioner and an academic, he presents the philosophy and skills of Mindfulness in an openhearted, clear, often humorous and always compelling way. It is always a joy to benefit from his teaching"
