About Mindfulness

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally.


In this practice we train our attention to interrupt the habit of getting lost in thoughts and becoming overwhelmed by our emotions.


It is in the moments of clarity that we create opportunities that can help us own our lives.


Mindfulness offers:

  • enhanced ability to overcome psychological distress such as panic attacks, depression, fatigue, and insomnia,

  • increased clarity and equanimity,

  • more balance and less emotional volatility,

  • experience of calm and peacefulness and therefore reduced stress,

  • ability to develop self-acceptance and self-compassion,

  • increased self-awareness,

  • improved performance,

  • greater satisfaction in professional life.

Mindfulness has been around for many thousands of years and although it has roots in Buddhism, the eight week MBSR course, developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn has a secular framework and is based on common sense and practical application.


Over 30 years of academic research proves the benefits of learning to meditate, particularly in an 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course. The body of evidence and MRI scanning show extraordinary and extensive effect that MBSR course has on human brain.


In just eight weeks of regular practice we can develop skills that will allow us to use our innate resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain and illness as well as elevating our overall capacity for resilience, balance and awareness.


I have found that the fruits of mindfulness practice extend far beyond what can be tested clinically.


By intentionally orienting our lives toward the present moment, we often experience a greater joy in what the world is offering us right now instead of deferring our happiness for some time in the future. We become more attentive to our relationships, day-to-day decisions and the ways we experience our lives.


If you are inspired to live with more mindfulness, then there is no better time than now to begin.
