What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a body-mind practice that cultivates awareness so that we are fully awake to our experience of ourselves in our lives. It is a creative exploration of gently noticing, listening, sensing and feeling what is arising moment by moment. 

Mindfulness Practice

Mindfulness Practice is not exclusive – everyone can practice and benefit from it. It can be practised at any time and in any place. At the heart of Mindfulness Practice is a number of meditation practices that are experienced while sitting or lying down or gently moving. We learn to come home to the body so that we reside in the present moment rather than habitually leaning back into the past or into the future. We also learn to become aware of the constant chatter of the mind so that we can begin to discern unhelpful and critical thoughts from those that are helpful and necessary.  

Mindfulness is an experiential practice that aids us with being able to face  personal challenges, struggles and pain in a kindly way so that our quality of life is improved and enhanced. We only have to pause to become aware of our thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations. We only have to pause to notice the world around us.

Extensive research reveals that Mindfulness practice can be life changing. It restores energy and vitality and mental and emotional balance; improves attention and concentration; builds resilience at home and at work and improves relationships.

Mindfulness is accessible to all. Courses and workshops provided by Mindfulbeing are non-religious and take place in a warm, private and spacious meditation studio.
