A mindfulness-based approach teaches us to cultivate a compassionate, patient, non-judgmental attitude towards ourselves. Through guided meditations, you will be gently encouraged to let going of ‘doing mode’ and simply be in direct relationship with thoughts, emotions and physical sensations as they arise from moment to moment. Through specific guided sitting, gentle movement and walking meditation practices, we can become more connected to our bodies, more comfortable with who and how we are.
Cultivating this present moment awareness can reveal our natural inner resource and strengths. It can help us see the world afresh and make positive choices that support, nurture and sustain us. It can reconnect us to what is most important in our lives.
