Online Mindfulness Drop In Sessions 

As the world as we know it is opening up again, it remains more than important to stay  present to our thoughts, emotions and physical sensations and that we can do by carving out some time in the busy schedule. Mindfulness meditation offers us an opportunity to be fully aware of our internal experience, moment to moment; to cultivate kindness towards ourselves and others; set the intentions for the next moments ahead and just simply taking better care of ourselves.  
Please join College Mindfulness facilitators on Zoom every Wednesday at 1 pm for a 30 min meditation, where we can be with ourselves but also in the company of the wider college community.
As Woody Allan put it “80% of success in life is just showing up”!

New beginnings by John O'Donoghue

In out of the way places of the heart
Where your thoughts never think to wander
This beginning has been quietly forming
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire
Feeling the emptiness grow inside you
Noticing how you willed yourself on
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the grey promises that sameness whispered
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
