Mindfulness is about purposefully paying attention in a non-judgmental way, to what is going on in your body and mind, and in the world around us. By staying in touch in this way from one moment to the next, we may start to see things somewhat differently, perhaps feeling less stuck, having a sense of more options, more strength, more confidence, more wisdom.
This 8 week course aims to assist you in taking better care of yourself and in getting the most out of living.
Participants on the course often report an increased ability to relax; greater energy and enthusiasm for life; heightened self-confidence and being able to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations.
Mindfulness exercises have been found to be helpful for many health conditions. By observing difficult sensations without judgement of good or bad we find ourselves becoming more accepting of our current condition. This creates space and an easing of the tension we have built up. Specific ailments that participants have reported finding some ease from include:
Chronic pain; high blood pressure; headaches; anxiety and panic; depression; addiction; sleep disturbance; fatigue; cancer and other long term illnesses (not to cure but to come to a place of acceptance).
Some people simply attend as they wish to learn how to meditate, integrate this ancient art form into their lives, feel more peaceful and happy, and spend time in a supportive and friendly group.
