This workshop explores our relationship to the menopause. It can be a great time of transition physically, emotionally and spiritually For many women it can be a struggle. The  workshop aims to provide support at this time. We will introduce the use of Mindfulness practices to BE with it, rather than battling against it. 
 
 

Mindfulness for Menopause 

This is not a one size fits all approach to the menopause. We will all have individual responses. The workshop will give you an opportunity to spend time with others sharing your menopause journey and gaining new tools to support you as life continues to change  We cannot stop the change but we can change our relationship with it. If you wish not to share but just to listen, that is fine too. 
The Workshop  will be guided by the experiences arising in the room. Thus focusing on the needs of those attending. 
 
The topics explored may include:- 
Physical responses: poor sleep; hot flushes, lack of energy, loss of libido, loss of our youthful body. 
Emotional responses: changing relationship with our physical body, partners, parents, children. 
Behavioural responses: eating; drinking,technology,health seeking behaviour. 
Pharmacological responses: HRT, herbal remedies 
Spiritual responses: Who am I?, loss of roles, deeper values. 
 
Gaynor and Linda will share with you what has kept them well during the menopause. There will be times for discussion along with experiencing mindfulness meditation practices to aid wellness. 
 
Mindfulness is recognized by The  Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists as reducing stress responses during the menopause and thus reducing symptoms. 
 
 
Dr Linda Khalid journey: 
An early menopause took her by surprise a year after the birth of her daughter. That year was spent having a lot of lie downs! And also experiencing palpitations. Once realised she quickly gave in to HRT. Physically things improved. However this was also a time of deep questioning and the beginning of a spiritual journey which would connect her with mindfulness. 
 
Gaynor Quilter: 
Gaynor stopped working full time having not sleep for over 3 years due night sweats and feeling that she could no longer function in a responsible way. On the basis of remembered advice from her Mum before her death, she avoided HRT, but tried every complimentary and herbal option know to her friends or researched. Spending a small fortune in the quest!  She practices all the mediations she will be sharing and can say she now has a good nights sleep!

Mindfulness for Health Professionals 

Suryacitta 
“When a colleague of mine arranged a small group mindfulness meditation sessions with Suryacitta, I had no idea what to expect. As a medical professional, however, I was quite curious about what could be on offer to help with everyday life stressors. This continued weekly for further 6-8weeks and provided another perspective on my approach to life and other people around me. Each session lasted around 1 hour facilitated by himself who was open, non-judgemental and knowledgeable. He had written a book on the subject, which I found extremely honest and easy to read and follow. The sessions were unbelievably simple and practical consisting of discussion among the group and mental and physical practices.” 
Dr Reza Kiani, Consultant in learning disabilities 
 
“Suryacitta introduced us to how the practice of mindfulness leads to a quiet cumulative experience of inner peace, resilience and the first steps to finding the happiness we have buried within ourselves. Finding and living in happiness is a continuous life-long exercise, and only an effective and advanced teacher can instill the faith needed to sustain and enjoy the journey. Suryacitta was that teacher, and I am grateful for the experience. I would recommend Suryacitta’s course and book to anyone who has genuinely realised there is an immediate and important need for compassion and happiness to pervade their lives. May you be kind, and may you be happy.” 
Dr Avinash Hiremath, Psychiatrist Glenfield, Leicester 
 
Dr Adam 
“One of the main reasons I had for coming on the course was that I had struggled to learn from just reading books on the subject. Dr Adam’s careful, sympathetic and warm approach to introducing us to mindfulness has made all the difference for me. I look forward to continuing to practice daily.” 
– Tony, NHS patient 
 
Dr Adam 
To be quite frank I have found these sessions with Dr Adam superb. The sessions are well thought through, relaxing and delivered in a positive manner. The combination of meditation and poetry has opened my mind to alternatives. I do find it helpful to meditate frequently and when I am having a “bad time” and cannot calm down quickly. The length of the course is appropriate to get tot he heart of the issue. A follow-up session would be useful. I can’t think of any negatives as I have found this course very useful. – NHS patient with Depression
