WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
MINDFULNESS IS AN INNATE HUMAN ABILITY
The hectic pace of modern life can easily take us away from who we are and what we love. Mindfulness is the ability to be aware of what is happening right now, wherever you go or whatever you do, it’s about being “all there” in body and in mind.
Fortunately, mindfulness is not something you have to “get” or acquire. It is already within us, a deep internal resource available and patiently waiting to be released and utilised. Mindfulness is an innate quality of mind that, when cultivated, can awaken each of us to true health and happiness.
MINDFULNESS IS A PRACTICE
You can increase your own innate mindfulness exponentially by learning and practicing a variety of techniques that enhance your inner strength.
Training in mindfulness is like training a muscle, training our attention to be where we want it to be. The practice improves our ability to notice, observe, and experience bodily sensations, thoughts, and feelings on purpose in each moment - even when they may be difficult or challenging.
EVERYONE CAN DEVELOP MINDFULNESS
Whether it is the stress of daily life, the feeling that something is missing, or the challenges of a physical or psychological condition, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) has helped thousands of people like you to live fuller, richer, and more empowered lives.
Mindfulness offers us a new perspective from which to view our lives afresh, to create a renewed relationship with our mind, body, community, and life. It reduces our tendency to rush through life on autopilot, improving our ability to act with awareness and attention, allowing us to choose how we respond in each moment.
