The manic pace of the modern world means that people are living life fast, but are we living it well? There’s an argument that the busyness epidemic is damaging our health, sanity and relationships.
The world might be crazy but you don’t have to be. What if the solution is not to do more, but to ‘be more’? Mindfulness is the process of being aware of your experience, including your breathing, and being in the moment, right here and right now. It is pure observation practiced with compassion.
Isn’t ‘mindfulness’ a bit, you know…?
A bit ‘you know’ what? ‘New age’ perhaps?
Be assured, mindfulness is not new, it’s the oldest happiness trick in the book and everyone needs to know the basics. How far you decide to take it is then up to you.
There are several classic signs that you might be due some mindfulness time: You can hardly remember the last time you had a moment to yourself; you get impatient as your computer boots up; you finish people’s sentences for them; you rush everywhere; your heart feels closed; you know there’s more to life but you don’t know what it is or where to find it.
This mindfulness workshop will not question your ‘to-do‘ list but it will challenge your ‘to-be’ list. It will address concepts such as the ‘beautiful ordinary’ which is seeking great things in ordinary places. It will develop your ability to be centred in a stressful world and even challenge the way you eat.
In a series of short ‘retreats’ this hands on / practical workshop will guide you through gratitude, self-acceptance and love. These retreats are highly practical. Catch your breath and re-emerge balanced and refreshed.
Open your mind and give it a go!
