What we're about

"A wonderful and relaxing evenng with lots of valuable information which helped me discover my inner sense of calm and balance" Lauren. C – Nurse

Mindfulness can also help you to reduce that constant negative monkey mind chatter that often contributes to our stress, anxiety and unhappiness. This introductory evening will help you enhance your creativity, emotional intelligence as well as a sense of wellbeing and happiness.

Scientists believe that our brain has a built-in “negativity bias” that helped our species to survive. As Dr. Rick Hanson, Ph.D. put it: “the brain is like Velcro for negative experiences, but Teflon for positive ones”.

New discoveries in neuroscience about brain plasticity prove that we can decondition ourselves from the negativity bias and build new neuropathways for taking in the good, joy and happiness.

The seminar includes an interactive introduction to the psychology as well as neuroscience of mindfulness, a heart rate scientific demonstration, lots of discussion as well as plenty of tips for daily living.

The evening is facilitated by Robert Gebka, international author, former Zen Buddhist monk and NHS mental health worker. The relaxed venue is close to sandy beaches and the evening promises not only the opportunity to unwind, but also to learn some simple, life-enhancing mindfulness techniques that you can apply in your daily life.

Mindfulness is an evidence based self-management technique approved by the NHS and endorsed by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Mindfulness Bournemouth.
