Mindfulness is cultivating the quality of being awake, present and accepting of this moment’s experience – which has a transforming potential on how we are with ourselves, how we are with others and how we are with stressful, difficult and challenging situations.

The breathworks program has been systematically tested with thousands of testimonials of a great way of being with and managing life-long conditions. This is a world-wide program. For more information please refer to the breathwork website, link below.

The 8 week program is based on 2 hour group work, over 8 weeks, followed by home practice. The process of bringing awareness to the body through meditation, mindful movement and theory help to facilitate life long tools which become second nature.

The course book by Vidyamala Burch and Danny Penman ‘Mindfulness for health‘ is user friendly and suitable for beginners, with links to on line guided meditations, and mindful movement demonstrations.

One of the aims of the course is to be fully present with our suffering and habitual patterns, to release oneself from the constant cycle of tension, reactively and often associated with chronic illness and stress and replace it with awareness and choice.

Suitable for beginners, anxiety and stress, and recovering from illness or injury.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a practice that has developed over some 2,500 years.  It is defined as “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn).

Daniel J Siegel tells us that “Mindfulness in its most general sense is about waking up from a life on automatic.”  And Sharon Salzberg that “Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention in a way that creates space for insight.

It is a thinking process that is a very practical way of enabling us to pay attention to what is happening to us and around us, and allows us to be in the moment – not thinking about what has happened in the past, or worrying about what may or may not happen in the future.

Mindfulness is about observation without criticism; being compassionate with yourself..

 What are the benefits of mindfulness?

For most of us, mindlessness is our default position, operating for much of the time on automatic pilot. We are mind-full rather than mindful.There is now a vast amount of research that demonstrates conclusively that mindfulness practice can help improve our mental and physical well-being.  Benefits may include:
