In the past decade, Mindfulness has become one of the key Search words for the wellbeing of mind and body.
Having its roots in ancient traditions of the East, mindfulness has two primary functions.
1. The development of mindfulness to protect oneself and others, such performing a difficult task, driving a car or needing to stay alert in important moments.
2. The development of mindfulness to reduce stress, worry and confusion.
Both these areas matter. Mindfulness teachers give classes/workshops offering a range of mindfulness practices suitable for daily life.
An initial training in mindfulness might take place for six hours per day for two days or a weekly meeting for two hours over six weeks. These courses provide a valuable foundation upon which to build your practice.
The primary practices often include mindfulness of
· Scanning the body,
· Household/office tasks
· Diet and Eating
· Loving Kindness
· Self compassion
Mindfulness supports the concentration, depths of meditation, clarity of mind and acts of consideration and kindness.
The practices contribute to the reduction of obsessive thinking, self-blame and unhealthy tendencies.
As mindfulness develops through practice, a person finds a greater capacity to stay steady in challenging situations.
Quality mindfulness teaching gives priority to everyone practising in the workshop rather than theory.
