Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. During mindful practice we become more aware of the way our minds spend large amounts of their waking time simply distracted and often regretful about the past or anxious about the future, missing the very moments that are really all we have. Mindfulness takes us out of any inner story we might have created and are caught up in and brings us into a fresh intimacy with our actual experience in an unconditioned way.
The course offers participants an insight into how mindfulness can enrich their lives. It is an experiential course that requires commitment from participants to understand and embody its simplicity and effectiveness. Through regular guided practice participants bring mindfulness and compassion into everyday living.
