How we Can help
Mindfulness has many proven benefits including helping people to cope better with stress and anxiety, improved focus and concentration, increased calm and balance, improved awareness of how our thoughts and feelings can generate more stress, and helpful ways to become less caught up in these negative patterns.
You can expect to leave this course with many tools to help navigate life’s stresses, confidently using mindfulness for your ongoing self-care.
Our 8-week course helps you to create a personalised mindfulness practise within a small group setting.
Mindfulness is a well-researched and evidence-based approach to helping people with stress and anxiety.
We will explore techniques to help you bring this wonderful practice into your everyday life, and cultivate attitudes such as patience, trust, acceptance, and self-compassion.
We will provide guided meditations, handouts, group discussions, and exercises which enhance personal learning and wellbeing.
Mindfulness is a curious term as it is actually not about being mind-full at all. It is about being fully present, being aware of the present moment, and knowing that you are in the moment. It is acknowledging without judgment. What is happening in the moment, both around you and within your own mind.
People often think mindfulness is all just about sitting crossed-legged, on the floor and trying as hard as possible to empty the mind of all thoughts.
Mindfulness and meditation are not necessarily the same thing although they complement one another and are often seen as the two sides of the same coin with many overlaps. You learn to focus on the present moment, whether that is whilst doing a sitting meditation, eating food, walking in nature, or doing the daily chores!
In essence, mindfulness is a form of meditation.
Why practice mindfulness?
Mindfulness allows us to slow down enough in order to choose healthy responses and take control of our lives. It also leads to insight, wisdom, better health, and awakening.
The benefits of practising mindfulness are well documented.
