Hi all! Happy Sunday!
If you are not able to go to the training in May, no problem, maybe you can make it next school term.
Or if you want to do an in-house training on a day and location that is more suitable for you, no problem, we can do that too!
All you have to do is send me an email an I will get in touch.
A well formulated definition of Mindfulness is that it is the practice of cultivating nonjudgemental awareness in day to day life. (Stahl &Goldstein).
For me Mindfulness is a way of living and a great way of looking after yourself. It will help you to be more calm and more resilient. It will help you in learning to be less stressed and anxious. It helps in having a more joyful life. And it will make you kinder to yourself by being more accepting and less judgmental. Isn’t this what we all want?
Mindfulness is noticing when your mind is spinning, when you’re worrying about future events or can’t let go of past happenings. It is sitting back and taking a breather, calming yourself down so you get more clarity and it will be easier for you to make decisions. Mindfulness is all about practicing your concentration, living less on the automatic pilot, being less forgetful. It is about feeling more joy in your life, regardless the things that will happen or have happened . Mindfulness is about learning to focus and really taking in the things that seem so small but are so important.
We are always thinking about what we still have to do, what we should achieve, should do better, should do more, or less. We forget that we only live now in this moment. And it is in the here and now where the happy moments are. Mindfulness helps you to focus more on these moments. Learning to take in these moments without being judgemental. Which might sound easy, but honest, it does take some practice!
May 7th will be the start of a new Mindfulness Training at the Linden Centre. This will be an 8 week course. There will be a morning training at 10.00-11.30 and an evening training at 19.30-21.00. $125.
In the mindfulness training you will try different kind of concentration practices to discover which works best for you. They are easy, down to earth meditations, short ones and longer ones. And because you know yourself best, you can choose which help you the most in your daily life. You will get information about mindfulness and how to integrate this in your life. The sessions are one and half hour long and although you can share your experiences practising mindfulness with each other, this is not a therapy group.

we’ve been busy getting organised for the start of Easy Now Mindfulness, training will start next term and hoping to give one training during the day and one training in the evening, every school term. Also thinking of a weekend training. Getting Facebook page going and getting a website up. My business cards are ordered and flyers are nearly done. All exciting and energising and looking forward to a great year.
