Mindfulness-Based Self Care
Self Care and Nourishment
The aim of my mindfulness courses is to promote awareness of your mind and body, helping you take better care of yourself and get the most out of living.
Mindfulness, draws from several eastern spiritual teachings. Depending on your wishes, I am happy to talk more specifically about this background during our sessions.
Mindfulness teaching originally comes from eastern contemplative traditions as well as from modern scientific and psychological studies of the mind and how it works. I offer an eight-week course which is based on the work of the hugely respected teacher Jon Kabat-Zinn. I also draw from my own personal life, the changes that I have made, and from my own journey of practicing mindfulness.
These sessions can be online or face-to-face, and in group, or one-to-one.
We are all on a path of some sort and everyone’s journey is different. I feel it’s important to recognise this, so have adapted my teaching to ensure a more personal approach.
Together, we explore the transformative power of mindfulness practice both on and off the cushion, looking at ways how we can savour life and flourish. We learn how to respond from a place of discerning wisdom, instead of from a place of habitual reaction. We learn how to experience gratitude, feel connected to others and cultivate joy, compassion, equanimity and wisdom.
Time for Yourself
I give one-to-one mindfulness mentoring to individuals or small groups, which can be held face-to-face or on Zoom. Mentoring may consist of specially themed sessions (for example, discussing the attitudinal foundations of mindfulness), or discussions about how practice is going.
These sessions are made to fit with where you are with your mindfulness practice and where you want to go
