What we're about

Mental Health... Bit of a buzz word... although when it goes... you know it.... Life sux, everything seems harder... and this group is about raising the profile of Awareful.com.au (http://www.awareful.com.au), its teachers (https://awareful.com.au) and holding events that will showcase simple and effective (evidence based) tools to help simplify our life.

It's an opportunity to learn some skills we should have been taught at school, to help manage our mental health when our emotions seemingly take control.

The group is aimed at anyone (there is no age limit) who is looking for support or building resilience/tools for future support of their mental health.

Make Living a Little Simpler (FREE TALK)

Karma Collab Hub

Mindfulness & meditation seems to be leading a revolution in the way we look at our thoughts, and how we associate these thoughts with the world that is within us and around us. We practice for a wide range of reasons, with new research released daily showing its impact in alleviating stress and anxiety, manage pain, and sleeplessness among many others. However, it isn’t limited to sufferers of this nature. People who are in good health use mindfulness to enhance their happiness and health, kindle their creativity, build their resilience, and improve how they communicate with others. Mindfulness feeds your courage and your curiosity, making you more willing to try new things or fresh approaches without the overblown fear of failure looming over you.
