Mindfulness

See things differently through mindfulness, meditation and exercise 

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."

As part of the 8week MBSR course we hold an ALL DAY session between weeks 6 and 7.

The day that runs from 9.30am – 4.30pm is held predominantly in silence and gives people on the course the chance to experience a silent retreat for just one day

 Some times  we may need help in developing our mindfulness practice. This is an opportunity to seek help and advice and practice with someone on a 1:1 basis.

Time gives you choices.

Choices, skillfully made, lead to freedom."
