Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment, or present moment awareness. There is significant evidence linking it to decreased stress and anxiety, self-awareness and positive mental health.

At its most basic level, mindfulness helps train your attention to be more aware of what is actually happening, rather than worrying about what has happened or might happen. When we are mindful we are aware, we notice what’s going on around us and inside us. We learn to bring greater curiosity to whatever it is we experience.
Through being mindful, we learn that small things can have a big effect. Becoming aware of our bodies, our emotional life, our communication with others, helps us to live a life that is more centred in loving kindness and self-compassion.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founding father of secular mindfulness, described this skill as ‘being alive and knowing it’.
During this 5 week course you will learn skills which support you to develop the quality of attention, and the capacity to come back, again and again, to the present moment with curiosity, compassion and kindness.
This awareness means we can respond more skilfully to whatever the present-moment throws at us. We develop a deeper connection with ourselves and the world around us.
