Building awareness and recognition to the present moment

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the art of being present and aware in the moment. It is a mental state where one has an attitude of openness, curiosity and acceptance towards thoughts, feelings, sensations or anything that makes up our experience.

Mindfulness is not about stopping thoughts from coming into your head. It’s not about clearing your mind or trying to think positively all the time. Rather, it’s about acknowledging and accepting whatever you are going through in the moment, without judgement.

Finally, mindfulness can help us to be more productive in our day-to-day lives by reducing distraction from things like social media or other digital devices.

Frequently Asked Questions

In our mindfulness programme we do cover mindfulness, breathwork and meditation, but its not too woo woo. Our courses are backed up by year of scientific research, so not only could you feel better after taking part in this course, you will understand the reasons why. And understanding why is the key in maintaining a good practice going forward.

Mindfulness has been around for thousands of years. When Jon Kabat-Zinn decided to create a programme in the University of Massachusetts in 1979 he removed any reference to religions as they stood and began to study to benefits of the actions. Mindfulness does not conflict with any beliefs or traditions, whether religious, cultural or scientific.

It is simply a practical way to notice thoughts, physical sensations, sights, sounds, smells- anything we might not normally notice. The actual skills might be quiet simple, but because it is so different to how our minds normally behave, it takes a lot of practice.

Mindfulness is an inclusive practice. What you put in to it you will get out of it. Once you dedicate yourself to the course you will achieve benefits from it.
People often say that they will not be able to meditate as there mind is way too busy to do it. The art of mindfulness and mindful meditation isn’t about clearing the mind of all thoughts, after all we have over 60,000 of them a day. It’s about acknowledging when we have gotten lost in thought and guiding ourselves back to whatever task we have been distracted from. By practicing mindfulness this awareness comes earlier and earlier in along the wandering stream, ensuring less time is lost to worrying about the future, ruminating about what has passed and more time is spent living in the present.
Developing a mindful practice is often seen as a luxury not everyone can afford. However studies have shown that developing and maintaining a mindful practice increases productivity and reduces time lost in thought among others. Combined these alone cover the time you end up spending dedicated solely to a mindfulness practice.
