Course Overview

Mindfulness allows us to be present and live in the NOW. Our minds are often stuck in the past, trawling over events long since gone this is known as Regret Mode. Then our minds can be projected into the future, obsessing over events that may or may not happen this is known as Worry Mode. Whilst our mind is in any of these modes, we are not living in the present moment and therefore we can spoil the beauty of the moment in front of us.

Mindfulness training teaches us to be rooted in the present and we learn that we are bigger than our thoughts and that we do have control over the way we think we just need to be shown the relevant techniques and then apply them to our daily lives. Nobody teaches you how to think but our thoughts, good and bad, produce actions (good and bad karma) and our beliefs drive our behaviour. Let go of the past, release yourself from the prison of your mind and step into the sunshine – we will show you the way.  Meditation helps to reduce stress and anxiety and lowers heart rate and blood pressure. It gives us a sense of calm and balance. During these sessions, you will encounter a number of different types of meditation, in order to find the right one for you.
