What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is for anyone wanting:
- A new way to handle stress and difficult emotions
- To worry less, feel more grounded and resilient
- To help with depression, anxiety and fatigue
- To relax more deeply
- A richer experience of life, living more ‘in the moment’
- To live well with symptoms of long-term illness and pain
Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present, paying attention with curiosity and openness to our thoughts, feelings, body and the environment around us, moment by moment.
For much of our lives, our minds are preoccupied with the past or the future (frequently with regrets, worries or fears) and we miss the richness of the present.
Being truly focused on the present moment enables us to sense and think with a new clarity, and choose a wise response to situations. Training in mindfulness enables us to break free from cycles of thoughts that can affect our enjoyment of life, disturb our sleep, or even impact our health. It helps us better manage our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships and enables us to flourish in life.
We all have the natural capacity to be mindful. On an 8 week mindfulness course we learn through teaching, guided meditation (non-religious) and group discussion how to live life in a different way, developing tools to cope with life’s challenges.
