What is Mindfulness?
The Mindfulness Association’s (MA) working definition of mindfulness is:
” K n o w i n g w h a t is h a p p e n i n g w h i l e i t i s h a p p e n i n g, w i t h o u t p r e f e r e n c e.”
“As you sit and read this, you can choose to be mindful. You can choose to come into the present moment and know you are sitting here, while you are sitting here.
Spend a moment just becoming aware of your experience as you sit here: any thoughts passing through the mind, any emotion you are experiencing now and any physical sensations you can feel in the body.
Becoming aware of our experience relates directly to the ‘knowing what is happening while it is happening element of our definition.” (MA)

Clients are shown simple tools and skilfully facilitated to become familiar with their minds and their habitual tendencies. As a result, clients recognise they have more choice and are more motivated to make better work and life decisions.

Mindfulness can also bring greater awareness of the elements of our life integrating greater Wellness, be that physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Mindfulness is a bridge to the healing power of kindness and Self-Compassion. put simply by Dr Kristine Neff “With self-compassion, we give ourselves the same kindness and care we would give to a good friend”. These simple words, which are often hard to remember when we need them and tricky to follow through in practice.
