Meditating With Baby Goats

11:30 am

January 20, 2019

Fancy a date that’s always cute n’ cuddly? Join us for the softest meditation this Spring! [As seen in Style Magazines, The Courier Mail, Gold Coast Bulletin, What’s On in Brisbane and Take 5 Magazine]

What to expect:

· Mindful stretching to still the body

· Breathing techniques to quiet the mind

· Silent meditation

· Fluffy cuddles from a cute date

I know what you’re thinking. “Wait, but why are we meditating with this much cuteness? Won’t I be even MORE distracted?

The short answer is yes. The long answer is that Breathe In & Bleat Out is a metaphor for what meditating actually feels like when you first start. Your first meditation sitting isn’t going to be perfect, and it certainly won’t be still. You’ll have thoughts, feelings, memories and dreams niggling at you, gnawing on you and clamouring for attention.

Just like our furry friends.

These cuties nibble, nuzzle, dribble and piddle, but I can promise you won’t get worked up over it. In fact, I can guarantee you’ll leave with nothing but a smile! And maybe a few selfies (Good luck trying to get a baby goat to pose!) Instead of criticising yourself for being unable to sit still in perfect, spiritual silence, you’ll learn to compassionately observe this chaos, embrace the moment and stop kicking yourself for not being so damn perfect all the time.

Why we chose baby goats:

1) Fewer allergies than cats & dogs

2) Cuddling causes warm fuzzy feelings in humans and animals! Whether from our human friends or furry ones, cuddling is proven to release oxytocin, which boosts the immune system, reduces stress and relieves pain! “Oxytocin is a natural stress reliever… it acts on our brain to diminish anxiety and induce relaxation” – Harvard Health Letter.

3) Researchers in the UK have found evidence that goats are just as clever as dogs, and build complex emotional relationships with humans!

4) Stanford PAWS program has been using animal therapy for 20 years to raise the spirits of hospitalised patients. Animal therapy has also been found to reduce cortisol in Autistic children by up to 48%, as well as relieve symptoms of PTSD and schizophrenia.

Your friendly warning: Baby goats don’t have complete control of their bladders & can get super excited without warning! The Karmably Cleaning Crew is always standing by for mishaps, but please come prepared for the worst. AKA go digging for your daggiest gym shirt and throw it over those nice, new tights when the mischief begins!

The rescue goats are provided by Jodie from Harmony Hearts Healing Hooves, a beautiful centre in Highland Park, dedicated to rescuing horses bound for slaughter, or Brisbane sanctuary, My Little Farm Friends. Piglets and lambs are hand-reared on Sandy’s farm, and adopted out to a close network of families on acreage as grass-eating pets.

Please Note: No refunds are given up to 7 days before the event date. After this time, you may sell your tickets and notify us of changes to attendee details. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
