Mindfulness refers to the willingness or ability to show up fully in our lives and live them as if they really mattered. It is typically cultivated by a range of simple meditation practices, which aim to bring a greater awareness of thinking, feeling and behaviour patterns, and to develop the capacity to manage these with greater skill and compassion.
The aim of the Mindfulness Series is to help you to develop your own mindfulness practice that fits into your lifestyle and soon becomes a habit. We encourage you to be curious and non-judgmental about your experience, not knowing what the outcome of the program will be, but trusting in the practices you are engaging in. See if you can persevere even when you feel you are making no progress or when things feel difficult.
This eight-part online Mindfulness series provides an opportunity to observe your own mind and body, life, and work, and whatever may arise for you. You have a chance over this series to befriend yourself and to reclaim your life, living it more fully, moment by moment. This commitment is ultimately a radical act of trust and faith in yourself.
Some of the benefits of mindfulness include emotional regulation, increased self-awareness, ability to make wiser choices, improved concentration, greater focus, managing stress and an overall sense of well-being.
