Why Mindfulness?

In these stressful and uncertain times why not do something for ourselves helping to rediscover a sense of well being and happiness, balance and control within our lives, and peace of mind?


In contrast, we have all probably encountered moments of “mindlessness”- a loss of awareness resulting in forgetfulness, separation from self and a sense of living mechanically. Restoring a balanced sense of health and wellbeing within ourselves requires an increased awareness of body and mind, heart and soul. MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programmes) is designed to reconnect with this inner capacity for infusing our lives with awareness.

Why Mindfulness?

Reawakening what we already are...


Fortunately mindfulness is not something more that we have to “get” or acquire. It is already within us as a deep internal resource available and patiently awaiting to be released and used in this service of learning, growing and healing.

Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment.

We feel more alive.

We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing.
