Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a deeply human quality of unlimited potential, which can bring meaning and happiness to our lives.  2,500 years ago, the Buddha described mindfulness as 'clear and radiant' and as 'stillness, simplicity and contentment'.  Yet we do not need to be Buddhist nor interested in Buddhism to benefit from mindfulness.

Mindfulness practices can help us to develop awareness:  serene, alert, focussed states of mind, in which we can get beyond the usual chatter in our heads and start to listen to our deeper inspiration and wisdom.  

In addition to exploring how to bring mindfulness into our everyday actions, we teach the Mindfulness of Breathing meditation practice.  This is a simple, effective and traditional meditation in which we focus on the natural experience of breathing, in a way which is both directed and relaxed and which unfolds through a series of structured stages.
