Mindfulness Meditation Course
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a basic human ability to be fully present, aware of what we think, feel and what we do, it is the faculty of consciousness and thought.
While mindfulness is something we all naturally possess, it’s more readily available to us when we practice on a daily basis.
Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you’re being mindful. There is growing research showing that when you train your brain to be mindful, you’re actually remodelling the physical structure of your brain.
The goal of mindfulness is to wake up to the inner workings of our mental, emotional, and physical processes.
What is meditation?
Meditation is witnessing the mind. Your head doesn’t become free of thought or utterly undistracted when you meditate. Meditation is the practice of turning one’s attention to a single point of reference. It can involve focusing on the breath, on bodily sensations, or on a word or phrase, known as a mantra. In other words, meditation means pivoting away from distracting thoughts and focusing on the present moment. You can say the practice of meditation encourages a state of deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent.
Mindfulness meditation asks us to suspend judgment and unleash our natural curiosity about the workings of the mind, approaching our experience with warmth and kindness, to ourselves and others.
How do I practice mindfulness and meditation?
Mindfulness is available to us in every moment, whether through meditations and body scans, or mindful moment practices like taking time to pause and breathe when the phone rings instead of rushing to answer it.
Our Mindfulness Meditation 6 Week Course ONLINE & IN PERSON is a comprehensive course which provides you with the tools, understanding and learnings to the science of deep relaxation, how to manage stress, anxiety and how to calm the nervous system. You will experience deep mental clarity, how to access your peaceful mind and feel full of energy.
All you need is a sincere desire to open your heart and mind to the present moment.
Mindfulness is a non-judgmental approach to paying attention to the present moment. By practicing mindfulness you can change the way you think about your experiences and therefore cope more effectively with everyday stress, including anxiety, chronic pain or mild depression.
