What is Mindfulness?
Ever wonder where the good and enjoyable times go as we rush through life? Do you find that you are spending a great deal of your time thinking about the future or the past, while the present slips by?

Is your mind racing, thinking ahead, worrying, judging, whilst you are feeling stressed to the max, anxious or overwhelmed? Do you often find yourself on automatic pilot?
Mindfulness keeps your attention in the present moment. The goal “is simply to observe- with no intention of changing or improving anything.” Mindfulness enables us to live each and every moment to the fullest. Mindfulness is a means of observing and accepting what is occurring at the time, instead of demanding how things should be. Accepting what happens in our mind just as it is right now, with all the positives and negatives, often leads to increased confidence, calmer moods, and enhanced coping skills. Mindfulness is awareness of the moment- something that is beneficial in many aspects of life such as working, talking, playing, or eating. Tuning into the present moment is what mindfulness is about.
Practicing mindfulness on a daily basis may not be as easy as it sounds. The group provides practice and support to help you to begin making changes. In the group you will learn to shake off anxiety and enjoy total rest and quieten your mind. You will be refreshed and gain a broader and clearer view of life. You can develop a deeper and stronger belief in your abilities; you learn to respond more helpfully and effectively to what is happening around you.
Depression, demands, happiness.
In the autumn we will once again be offering a Mindfulness course. Participants will learn to use mindfulness techniques to develop peace of mind and keep psychological problems at bay.
