Informationon 1:1 sessions:
Mindfulness is the skill of being fullyaware and awake to what is in our immediate experience, bringing an attitude of compassion and kindness to ourselves and our experience. We become more intimate with the subtle but habitual thought patterns we have developed throughout our lives and tendencies we have to react to our experience (grasping after certain experiences while avoiding unpleasant experiences). Wenotice our reactions and allow things to be as they are rightnow without judgements. While mindfulness is nota cure-all, research does suggest its effectiveness in:
- Managing stress more effectively
- Improving physical health (reduced blood pressure, improved immunity)
- Enhancing quality ofsleep
- Reducing anxiety and depression
- Improving tolerance of chronic pain
- Lifting mood and appreciating what is good in life
- Managing communicationmore effectively
- Enhancing feelings of self-worth and compassion for others
During your one hour session with a qualified Mindfulness teacher, you will be taught core mindfulness practices e.g. Body Scan, Sitting Meditation and Mindful Movement. When practised on a regular basis, meditation can result in the benefits cited above.CDs and booklet available to purchase which can help to support ongoing practice.
