Changing the experience of pain with Dr Elizabeth Sparkes.
Researchers studying neuroscience have shown that just a weeks worth of sitting with awareness of pain and engaging with meditation (following the breath), changes the brains response to pain. Being curious about the sensations themselves rather than getting caught up in thought about the impact of pain can make a difference. The flurry of activity in areas in the brain associated with relaying the sensory experience reduces while activity in areas that moderate pain increases.
Dr Liz Sparkes has a PhD in pain psychology and has trained to teach mindfulness with Suryacitta. She will take you through ways to change your pain using mindfulness and meditation techniques.Techniques include:Visualisations, mindfulness of body and breath and exploring emotional release in the body.£5510 places availablePlease bring a packed lunch/there are also 3 gorgeous cafe/restaurants in the villageDrinks and snacks will be provided.For more information or to book contact Liz on:
