What is Mindfulness
- Mindfulness is about being present and being here with kindness.
- It takes practice and the classic course is taught over 8 wks.
- Mindfulness is good for you and anyone can do it.
- You don’t have to sit on a cushion or stop your thoughts but we are required to come from a good heart.
Mindfulness is a way of gently focusing attention which can break negative emotional loops, so that life becomes meaningful again.
Through meditation, mindfulness can enable one to see things differently, undoing mental and physical knots and tensions.
If we access the “now” with gratitude and work with worthy intention a better quality of life develops.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is the largest and best-known stress reduction programme in the world. Based on much older teachings, it was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical department in the 70’s. It has benefitted people suffering from stress, stress-related conditions and chronic pain as well as many others whose needs were less acute but who sought a better understanding of self and an improved quality of life.
The UK`s N.I.C.E. National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, recommends the training as a means to significantly reduce the incidence of depressive relapse.
The core skill that you will learn is ‘mindfulness’ – a way of paying attention, on purpose and non-judgementally, to what goes on in the present moment in your body, mind, and the world around you.
