What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the skill of being more awake in our daily life and work, by giving our full, open-hearted attention to what is immediately occurring, physically and mentally, within and around us.

What can Mindfulness do for you?

Mindfulness can add immense value to your life in many ways:

increasing self-awareness so it is easier to recognise stress

increasing self-compassion fostering a kinder way to be with yourself

cultivating skillful responding to situations, rather than with automatic reactivity

decreasing the ‘re-hashing’ of the past or preoccupation with the future

calmer mind, clearer thoughts, better decision-making, both at home and at work.

Who would benefit?

Those people new to mindfulness and those who wish to deepen their existing experience of the approach. This course is focused on developing personal experience and practice of mindfulness with the benefits being realised in your life. Also participating in this course is a prerequisite for teacher training in mindfulness, should you wish to do this at a later stage.

Course Essentials

This course is fully experiential and aims to cultivate the skills of mindfulness and how to integrate them into your life and work.

You will become familiar with various practices (body scan, sitting, walking, mindful movement) and explore your experiences in a supportive environment during the sessions and in essential home practice.
