What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness Meditation is about being present moment by moment.  It is a state of attention that is both relaxed and focused.  The traditional name of Mindfulness is Vipassana, and it is one style of meditation amongst many.  The type of Mindfulness I teach comes from the works of Shinzen Young and it is the one I find most useful and beneficial in terms of precision of the technique and clarity of the explanations.

Why Mindfulness Skills?

The benefits of Mindfulness training are –

  • It can help increase mental, emotional and physical well-being.
  • It can help to reduce stress and improve the way we interact with others.
  • It can also help nurture our appreciation of our self and the world around us.

The system I teach is non-religious, so whatever your beliefs you can benefit.

Developing these skills helps you to experience your thoughts, emotions, physical sensations – and the ways that these interact – more clearly.

By doing this, you become much more self-aware.
