What is Mindfulness?
The core message of Mindfulness is to become aware and be present in the moment, and this may relate to our thoughts, feelings, perceptions and impulses in a completely different way.
To avoid undesirable patterns, one must first become aware of them. The underlying philosophy and the effective techniques used in Mindfulness make it a winning recipe that can be used both in our personal and professional lives. It is therefore Mindfulness has become so popular in our time and countless people from all walks of life can benefit from it and optimize the quality of their daily life in every way..
What are the benefits of Mindfulness?
Mindfulness training is very effective for coping with:
– Overeating problems
– and other difficult emotions such as sadness, irritation, frustration
Positive qualities of Mindfulness practice, which gradually become automatic responses are:
– Letting go
– Non-judgemental, non-striving and accepting attitude.
In Mindfulness, emphasis is on learning through personal experience – not theory – and therefore it is important to do your homework. This can include Mindfulness meditation, guided body scan, awareness exercises, and possibly yoga.
Happiness, joy and relaxation is often achieved as a side benefit when you practice Mindfulness. All these have tremendous effect for a stress-free, successful and balanced life and relationships.
What do you do at the workshops?
Mindfulness workshops include both theory and practice. Mindfulness principles are presented and analyzed in order to make it possible for participants to use them in Mindfulness exercises. You get to practice Mindfulness by basic guided Mindfulness exercises which are followed by group discussions. Alternation between theory, method and exercises makes the course varied and allows for a greater reflection that contribute to a greater understanding of Mindfulness. Variety is also needed to avoid sitting too long in meditative postures.
The overall objective of these courses is to help participants integrate Mindfulness in their daily lives. Course participants become able to practice Mindfulness by themselves by the end of all courses.
Who can benefit from Mindfulness?
Just anyone! In order to learn Mindfulness, you do not necessarily have to have a problem. Mindfulness is not only a problem solver, but in essence, it is a passport to balanced and quality living. Therefore, all courses are available for both individuals, groups, municipalities, businesses, hospitals, schools and such other institutions.
