We live in a world that is constant, overstimulating and runs at electronic speed. We rarely pause as our to do list stretches out before us but in this process we often lose touch with ourselves and what really matters.
Mindfulness is a training in attention and compassion – “Paying attention in a particular way – on purpose, in the present moment and non judgementally” is the definition given by Jon Kabat Zinn PhD, whose efforts have brought mindfulness into mainstream western medicine.
The practices of mindfulness help us restore a natural feeling of ease within ourselves, rather than viewing ourselves as a project needing to be ‘fixed’. In this practical course, with ongoing guided home practices, we will explore the practices of mindfulness to find greater ease within the busy-ness of our daily lives. We will begin training in being present for what is really here.
An experiential, non-religious course with guide home practices. Guided meditations and handouts supplied. Each week will include a discussion and practice around a theme, questions and answers as well as home practice review.
