What we're about

Mindfulness is about observation without criticism;

being compassionate with yourself.

When unhappiness or stress hover overhead,

rather than taking it all personally,

you learn to treat them as if they were black clouds in the sky,

and to observe them with friendly curiosity as they drift past.

In essence, mindfulness allows you to catch negative thought patterns

before they tip you into a downward spiral.

It begins the process of putting you back in charge of your life.

Over time, mindfulness brings about long-term changes

in mood and levels of happiness and wellbeing.

Scientific studies have shown that mindfulness

not only prevents depression,

but that it also positively affects the brain patterns

underlying day-to-day anxiety, stress, depression and irritability

so that when they arise, they dissolve away again more easily.

Other studies have shown that regular meditators

see their doctors less often and spend fewer days in hospital.

Memory improves, creativity increases and reaction times become faster

and enables us to stay in the present moment, rather than reliving the past or pre-living the future.

The journey can be life changing in a positive way, if you are open all that it has to offer.

For decades now, scientific research has been showing how useful Mindfulness practices are

for reducing stress, anxiety and depression.

it is useful if we are feeling stressed or have a mental health problem,

it can complement our religious beliefs and practices

There is no need to be religious or spiritual, to learn to practise mindfulness

and reap the benefits, and it can also help all of us enjoy a more wakeful, healthier, happier life. ​

Studies have demonstrated that participating in a Mindfulness-based program

can help people manage a wide range of physical conditions,

improving general well-being and increase joy and is a skill that can be developed with practice.
