What is Mindfulness?
MINDFULNESS is the moment to moment awareness invoked by tuning into your breath and every other aspect of your life. It is achieved by purposefully paying attention in a non-judgmental way, to what is going on in your body and mind, and in the world around you. This shift in awareness brought about by staying in touch with your thoughts, feelings and surroundings from one moment to the next, can initiate seeing things differently, it may help to allow you to feel less stuck, or to have a sense of more options, more wisdom, more strength and more confidence in your abilities.
Jon Kabat-Zinn’s original Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme
Today Mindfulness courses and workshops have been developed from Jon Kabat-Zinn’s original Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, which was developed to help people suffering with chronic physical pain and long-term medical conditions. It included meditation techniques to help participants become more aware of their experience in the present moment, by tuning into moment-to-moment changes in the mind and the body.
"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally."
This 6 week course is designed to mindfully bring compassion into relationships. You may be aware that you feel you have moved apart or that patterns of behaviour are creating difficulties between you. This course offers a different way of working with relationships using Mindfulness and self compassion to explore and create more skilful ways of being together.
If you are a business, organisation, teaching or training establishment giving your staff the opportunity to experience mindfulness training will show the benefits to individuals and their work place environment. See what we can offer you with our flexible custom packages.
