Meditation session at Ocean Beach

The March 8 session will be followed by a breakfast

A meditation session at Ocean Beach is set to kick off International Women’s Day on March 8.

Making Meditation Mainstream (MMM) Central Coast and Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, will host the morning session and breakfast at 6.30am at Ocean Beach Surf Life Saving Club.

Tesch says women should be celebrated every day.

“Women’s potential is often underestimated yet our power to persevere through adversity is something that cannot be overlooked by anyone,” she said.

“Women are the very backbone of our community and it is crucial we take a moment to stop and celebrate together the changes we have made and continue to make in our community and the world.”

This year’s International Women’s Day 2021 theme will focus on the incredible contributions made by women supporting communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tesch says MMM and the Women’s Day event aims to go deeper, supporting women who always support others.

“Over the past year, the importance of mental health has been highlighted more than ever before, and meditation and mindfulness are crucial tools for improving our wellbeing,” she said.

“The isolation caused by social distancing has been incredibly challenging and this event is an opportunity to reconnect and welcome new residents to the Coast.

“Supporting women in my community through meditation and offering connection with other locals is a privilege.

“I am looking forward celebrating International Women’s Day.

“I would like to thank the passionate team at Making Meditation Mainstream for teaming together with me to help support and celebrate local women and Ettalong Bendigo Bank for sponsoring us.”

The meditation service also meets every Saturday morning at 6.30am at Ocean Beach.
