What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness simply put is awareness. Developing an awareness that comes through paying attention to doing what we are actually doing. Mindfulness practice offers us the tools to slow down become aware of ourselves our relationships and the world around us.

 

The practice of Mindfulness teaches us to observe our often characteristic mode of being on ‘autopilot’ fuelling automatic and unconscious habits and patterns.

Being mindful in turn aids stress reduction and helps to alleviate the pressures of everyday life.
