Fully Being ~ Sunshine Coast is a meditation group that meets monthly (usually the first Sunday of the month) at the clinic to practice, study and discuss meditation together.
The meditations are mainly based on the Fully Being online course by Tsoknyi Rinpoche. The Fully Being program is ideal for anyone looking for an online resource to learn a secular approach to meditation to develop greater inner peace and compassion from an authentic teacher. If you are new to meditation this is an excellent way to begin a mindfulness practice with a gentle and somatic approach to working with our mind and body. To experience an example of this relaxed and embodied style of meditation practice led by Rinpoche, follow the link here.
If you are already a meditator you may gain a greater understanding of what meditation is, what can block the practice, how to skilfully work with your mind while deepening connection to awareness and loving-kindness.
In order to facilitate common understanding or deepen practice you may wish to subscribe to the Fully Being online course. This is available for a small monthly subscription that can be cancelled or paused at any time. (after 16 months you become a life member). This is entirely optional for attendee’s at our in-person session on the Sunshine Coast. You can find the main Fully Being page and see the free course introduction here.
The Fully Being group sessions start with some QiGong exercises -consisting of gentle stretches and movement- which is followed by a meditation from the ‘Dropping’ module of the course; click here to read about it and see the free introduction videos. After that we watch short teaching videos from whichever module we are studying, followed by discussion and finishing with a somatic mindfulness meditation.
