What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is training the mind in a state of awareness. Stepping back to consciously observe thoughts, emotions and noticing the patterns of the mind, enabling participants to step out of auto-pilot and appreciate and acknowledge the present moment.

Is it for me?

Mindfulness can be practiced by anyone who wants to understand the workings of the mind, think of it as brain training; the same way we can work our physical bodies through exercise, we can also exercise and strengthen our minds. Allowing us to have more clarity, more focus and to consciously chose the life we wish to create.

What are the benefits?



Enhance your sense of calm & general wellbeing



Enable you to recognise unhelpful thought patterns



Help you to better handle different emotion states, including improving mood on a day-to-day basis



Enhance clarity & ability to focus



Feeling more awake and aware through everyday life



What to expect...

Expect to be guided through meditation practices from 3mins up to 40mins. These meditations will be done sitting in a chair, standing, or lying down on the floor. There's no need to sit on the floor crossed legged, but of course you can if you wish to.

These exercises can be done with your group but also practiced at home in between sessions.

Every week will have an introduction, reflection on the week thus far in mindfulness daily practice, a guided meditation and group discussion on reflections of the practice(s)

Do I need to have meditated before?

No this course is suitable for complete beginners and those wishing to take their practice further

Do I need to bring anything?

No just your mind and your body, everything else will be provided for you, including audio recordings to practice at home. If you have your own items like a yoga mat, blanket/shawl or meditation pillow you are welcome to bring those along for comfort.
