Mindfulness training for 21st century living and working

Empowering you to live a richer, more vibrant and joyful life.

More and more people are finding that mindfulness supports them to ‘be’ with difficult experiences through acceptance and kindness, rather than constantly and unsuccessfully trying to fix, resist, avoid or ignore them.

Mindfulness is a training for the mind – a way of paying attention to our experience in the present moment with curiosity, which prevents us becoming entangled in thoughts, emotions or pain. Mindfulness helps us to notice any automatic reactivity which is reinforcing distress in our lives, and creates the space for us to respond with choice and compassion to take care of ourselves and, therefore, others
Scientific research into mindfulness reports significant benefits:
  • Improves quality of life and wellbeing
  • Significantly reduces symptoms of rumination/worry, stress/psychological distress, depression, and anxiety; 
  • Considerably lowers both pain intensity and how unpleasant the pain feels
  • Enhances resilience, collaboration, and mental agility in the workplace

Also, Harvard professor Sarah Lazar PhD talks in simple (understandable!) terms about her research, reporting that mindfulness meditation helps us to de-stress by reducing levels of the hormone cortisol.

Dr Lazar also recommends learning mindfulness with a qualified teacher, then using apps to supplement the teaching.

 


 

“Through this mindfulness course, I learned a lot about myself and my interactions with the outside world, gaining more freedom and a greater sense of contentment. The guidance was very well thought through and delivered by Danny and I really appreciate his commitment and perseverance. Danny reminded us of the tools we already have within that we can use to achieve a more fulfilling life. A big thank you” Maria Garcia
