Mindfulness is knowing what is happening when it is happening. Which sounds easy, yet delve deeper and the truth is that most of us are worrying about the future, ruminating over the past and very rarely able to be present with what is happening now. So life can pass us by.

Participating on the Mindfulness Based Living Course taps into our capacity to be in life as opposed to ‘doing’ life. It enables us to lessen the noise in our heads, to breathe easier, sleep better and remain calmer in challenging situations. It is method to enable us to come home to ourselves in a way that brings joy and fulfilment into our everyday lives.  Or as Lisa Smith who assists on the courses wrote: ” I’m amazed at how such a simple practice can have such a massive influence on my life and those around me.”

Another participant wrote:

I look forward to my mindfulness sessions.  They make me feel so positive about life. At first, I wasn’t sure whether I could spare thirty minutes one morning a week, let alone find time for daily practise.  I realised very quickly that the time invested was really going to pay off. My temper, my patience levels, my sleep and my general well being improved very quickly. I can’t believe what a difference the straightforward techniques that you have taught me have made.  They help me cope with the really busy times and help me manage my stress levels so much better.

I used to routinely have about a dozen things going on in my head at any one time. Now, I still have about a dozen things going on at any one time, but they aren’t all clambering for my attention at once.  I have learnt how to focus on just one thing at a time.  I am so much calmer as a result.
