What is Mindfulness?
" Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally" Jon Kabat-Zinn
For most of us our minds are very busy moving from one thing to the next. In this era of information over-load it is easy for us to become stressed and scattered. Mindfulness practice has been around for thousands of years as a way to still the mind and become more acceptant of the demands of life.
This contemporary, secular approach offers a programme of training which enables you to live more consistently in the here-and-now with a reduction in stress.
Mindfulness is currently receiving a huge amount of attention and extensive research is showing that it can produce significant benefits to those who regularly use this approach. This approach is acknowledged in the NICE guidelines as a treatment approach for depression.
