MINDFULNESS

 

The habit of ignoring our present moments in favour of others yet to come, leads directly to a pervasive lack of awareness and understanding of our own mind and how it influences our perceptions and our actions. It severely limits our perspective on what it means to be a person and how we are connected to each other and the world around us. Religion has traditionally been the domain of such fundamental inquiries within a spiritual framework, but mindfulness has little to do with religion, except in the most fundamental meaning of the word, as an attempt to appreciate the deep mystery of being alive and to acknowledge being vitally connected to all that exists.
- Jon Kabat-Zinn

What if there was a mental training that could improve your attention, impulse control and the quality of your life? If it allowed you to learn how to step back from old habits and reactivity and create new ways of working with stress and cultivating greater resilience. A training that allows for more emotional balance and has been scientifically proven to result in greater levels of appreciation and acceptance of who we are?

Mindfulness supports us all to:

  1. Listen more attentively.
  2. Consciously choose to act as opposed to react.
  3. Be more decisive and clear in decision making.
  4. Be focused and able to concentrate under pressure.
  5. Improve concentration and memory.
  6. Learn to self-regulate skillfully.
  7. Be more attuned and compassionate with self and others.

Why not be open to try it?

"I would like to encourage and support you in paying as much attention to the workings of your own mind and the embodied experience of life, as you do to other things in life, and start opening up to the possibility of a more balanced, fulfilling and purposeful existence." Mandy Johnson
