Are you wondering what mindfulness is all about?
Lets start with why mindfulness can help you. How much time do you spend remembering things that have happened in the past or thinking about things that are going to happen in the future? What is happening now – the present moment?
Mindfulness is seeing things more clearly, and paying attention moment to moment to moment. When you are mindful, you notice what is happening—as it is happens. This creates a space, a pause in which you can respond considerately to situations, rather than react. Creative possibilities open up; new ways of being with life’s challenges can present themselves.
Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when paying attention to the present moment, with non-judgment.
Today, there is a growing interest, and research corroborates the benefits of mindfulness training. The new breakthroughs in neuroscience show that by practicing mindfulness, the brain can be shaped for greater happiness, love, wisdom and greater emotional balance in turbulent times, as well as healthier relationships, more effective actions, and greater peace of mind.
How we can help
Group sessions are available for up to 8 people. You don’t need any fancy equipment, new outfits. Just a small pillow, a blanket or yoga mat and water.
Our sessions are based on the principles of the MBSR workshop at SoundsTrue. It was created in alignment with Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School from 1979.
“The present is the only time that any of us have to be alive – to know anything – to perceive – to learn – to act – to change – to heal” Dr. Kabat-Zinn
