Mindfulness involves deliberately bringing our attention into the present moment with open-hearted awareness and with an attitude of kindness towards ourselves. Developing Mindfulness helps us to find calm and stability in our relationships with ourselves and others in the midst of our busy, stressful lives.
This series of online evening classes will focus on the practical application of mindfulness in everyday life. Discover techniques that will help you find greater focus, efficiency and precision in what you do. When your attention is steady, your mind is also. Learn effective relaxation and meditative practices that will support your ability to be more present, more awake. Some of the benefits of these simple practices help bring about deeper connection with others, renewed mental and physical energy and increased enjoyment in the wonder and richness of everyday life.
Mindfulness is very much a buzz word in the area of anxiety and depression management these days, but Mindfulness has been around for many years, and is far from a fad.
