Mindfulness is about paying attention to one's present moment experience, in a particular way, with open-minded curiosity, kindness, compassion, acceptance and non-judgement.
While the focus is present moment awareness, current research suggests that regular Mindfulness practice can result in the reduction of stress, anxiety, depression and emotional reactivity. There is evidence that Mindfulness may increase your capacity to notice patterns of difficulty, and develop healthier and more wholesome approaches to life. It has also been shown to enable you to think more clearly, perform better and feel calmer, and to increase life satisfaction, health and well-being.
Over the course of 6 weeks you will be introduced to several core Mindfulness practices. The programme is largely experiential, but there will also be opportunity for discussion and for you to ask questions about the process. Each week you will be provided with readings and practices of approximately 30 minutes per day.
"There was excellent rapport between Sarah and Belinda and the course was well planned and executed, with very good presentation."
"The facilitators had an amazing ability to impart new ways of thinking, even a new 'language', with such insight."
"There was a new awareness of emotions, thoughts and how they affect every aspect of my life."
"The course helped to instil an amended life view ... more patient and balanced, increased awareness, less reactive, less angry."
"Belinda and Sarah showed great understanding and insight, and gave good feedback with respect and empathy ... affirming that one is actually OK!"
"I have done other Mindfulness courses and meditations for over 40 years. With this one I felt no pressure of any sort, just acceptance and gentleness."
