Mindfulness is a technique used to manage stress, pain and anxiety through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and without judgement.
We learn to do this as part of an eight week course through working with 7 main principles:
Using these principles and experiential learning we can become aware of what is happening in each moment and our reaction to each event. Through tuning into this awareness, we begin to develop a different relationship to the world and are more able to choose how we want to respond to things like stress, pain, human interactions. Therefore we can develop a sense of calmness, happiness and healthier relationships with those around us. I have completed my Mindfulness Teacher Training Pathway with The Centre for Mindfulness Practice and Research at Bangor University. I meet the BAMBA Good Practice Guidelines for Mindfulness Teaching.
