Mindfulness - An Introduction
Who Would Benefit
For anyone wishing to introduce a degree of self-awareness and calm into their daily activities.
Mindfulness has its roots over 2,500 years ago, in Buddhist and far eastern practice, but it still holds significant relevance for us today. You don’t need to practice Buddhism to be mindful; you simply just need the willingness to try something new. Mindfulness is about being in the present, shifting our focus of attention to what’s happening in this very moment. Noticing our thoughts, feelings and anything else we might not normally notice. It can feel quite difficult to do this at the beginning, especially in today’s high pressured world. We might often feel out of our depths, worrying, or suffering from feelings of sadness, anxiety or anger. With Mindfulness practice and meditation we have a chance to take a step back from our pressures and gain a much better sense of well-being and to simply feel happier.
