Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment….. Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness is a way of being present, moment by moment, with openness, acceptance and curiosity. It allows you to live life fully, in the moment, rather than dwelling in the past or worrying about the future. Practicing mindfulness opens up a space where you can fully access your inner resources and resilience.
Mindfulness is a life skill that helps you take charge of your own wellbeing. It allows you to turn towards your life challenges, whether that is stress, pain, illness or the demands of everyday life, making friends with yourself in the process.
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) courses we teach are grounded in the wisdom of the Buddhist meditative tradition, and backed up by rigorous scientific research.
Key proven benefits of mindfulness include:
Increased ability to act effectively under high levels of stress
Reduced levels of pain, anxiety and depression.
Improved relationship to self and others and increased self confidence.
