Open Monthly Meeting

July 19, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Bude & District U3A holds 10 OPEN MONTHLY MEETINGS a year with a Speaker. These are held at 2.30pm at the Parkhouse Centre, Bude on the 3rd Thursday of every month except October (our Annual General Meeting) and December (our Christmas Festivity).

The OPEN MONTHLY MEETINGS are free and include refreshments.

Visitors are welcome to come along to a meeting to see what we do and to decide whether they would like to join us.

The subject of this month’s meeting will be presented by Vanessa Lackford, entitled


Many of us spend considerable periods of time thinking about the past or the future, perhaps ruing past events or worrying about future ones.  We may be missing what is going on right now.  Mindfulness can help us to be present with what is happening now,  pleasant, unpleasant and neither.   Practicing mindfulness can bring us greater calm, equanimity and  compassion to ourselves.

The session will be as experiential as you would like it to be.  The invitation will be to participate in various meditative practices, if you wish.  There will be time for discussion, and Vanessa will offer written information and links.
