About this event

What will be covered in this session?

All of us have faced difficulties this year. It's been a tough time. Enjoy this relaxed and easy session of friendship, fun and connection.

In this session there will be a guided meditation, then an opportunity (not compulsory) to share with others in small groups how the year has been for you and what your intentions are for 2022.

Grab your favourite tipple or a cuppa, relax and enjoy some you time in a safe and supportive environment of fellow mindfulness practitioners.

Your facilitator, Glenda Irwin

Glenda is a senior facilitator for Mindfulness Works.

She began teaching mindfulness to children and parents by consultancy and alongside the Gifted Children’s Association in 2010. Training with teachers in USA, NZ, Australia and the UK, Glenda has since applied her extensive practice to mindfulness and relationships, eating, sleep and coaching models. She has a private consultancy: Red Letter Mindfulness & Positive Psychology offering coaching and therapeutic support for flourishing and optimal living. More on her extensive mentoring within corporate settings and individual sessions via Zoom and at her studio in Auckland can be found at

Glenda is an ACT and CFT therapist and recently completed a Graduate Diploma Health Science (Psychology). Her combined trainings in acceptance, compassion and positive psychology support her strength-based approach to mindfulness consultancy.

Glenda observes the philosophical practice of mindfulness within Buddhist and Taoist traditions but considers herself a secular practitioner (not engaging in rituals or oaths). She has a love of learning and continues to apply her attention to further (Bachelor Hons Health Science) academic studies in 2022.

Ask Glenda what she feels is her greatest strength and she will tell you her resilience and luck in having a ‘glass half full nature.’ Glenda is a single parent to one son; she loves to dance and laugh out loud and loves her new hobby, kayaking.

Rachel is also a poet, a qi gong teacher and a Feldenkrais practitioner.

What to expect in this session

✅100% non-judgmental environment — no pressure and no expectation

Experience an environment where you can just be as you are. No pressure to talk and no pressure to be any particular way. If you do talk, experience being actually listened to, without being judged or ‘fixed’.

✅Fresh, live guided meditations — kick back and relax

Enjoy being guided in meditation. Kick back and relax and let your mindfulness and meditation teacher guide you in an experience of calm and insight.

✅ Connection, compassion and community

Small groups of like-minded and like-hearted people all together in the session. Seek out your favourite teacher and enjoy the genuine support that comes from having a live teacher and practising with a group.

✅ Modern approach. Ancient wisdom

Sessions incorporate the latest neuroscience which are presented in a totally non-religious way but also call upon 2,000 years of insight and wisdom that has been developed by meditation practitioners.

✅ Your authority. Your journey

Mindfulness Plus sessions always emphasise your own authority and your freedom to develop your own practices that work for you.

✅ Reaffirming you are completely OK

All teachers re-affirm your own OKness and encourage you to discover and affirm this in yourself as well.
