The Gift of Mindfulness
Mindfulness clarifies, creates and guides.
The course focuses on experiential, formal and informal mindfulness practices as a foundation for the cultivation of life-long mental health and wellbeing. The experiential approach supports the learning, strengthening and integration of a range of mindfulness based skills through the recognition, development and refinement of your internal resources.
The aim of the programme is to learn new ways of being with our moods, emotions, thoughts and sensations through creating states of wellbeing that are lasting and reliable. We do this by noticing, focusing, and becoming aware of small changes in our thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations.

Comeback to YourSelf
Mindfulness is a way of coming back to ourselves. It allows us to learn to experience the present moment in its fullness. Mindfulness can bring simplicity, peace and joy to the individual, to our lives, to the small things and challenges we may face. Life becomes more significant and authentic and we begin to live our moments as if they really matter.
