Well, the holiday season is upon us again. It's common for it to be a difficult period for those left grieving after a suicide. Come along to M&M for perhaps a moment of respite. Last month Dr Craig Hassed presented his understanding of how meditation and mindfulness can assist us through the course of our lives. We'll discuss and recap his very interesting session.
Please ring the SAS Office (03 9421 7640) if you are interested in attending.
Here's our latest resources sheet.

Where to find Zen meditation teachers.
‘Mindfulness practices’ in video or audio formats are readily available as self-help resources. They can help provide respite and insight. Start out with no more than 10 mins a day and build your skills. It’s OK to experiment and find something that fits with your preferences. There are situations, especially soon after the suicide of a friend or loved one, where having counseling is much better than trying to deal with high levels of distress on your own. That said, do please explore these online resources.
