Mindfulness can be applied to all aspects of life outside of meditation. Performing a task mindfully is known as informal mindfulness.
During the course we will explore how informal mindfulness may be useful in the following situations:
- Tasks at work
- High stress situations
- Routine tasks
- Eating (mindful meals)
- Walking (Can also be a formal meditation)
- and almost any other task you perform
Informal mindfulness is a wonderful way to re-engage with the wonder and beauty of the world we live in. It turns the dull and mundane into interesting and fascinating activities.
EDUCATION & TRAINING
The course aims to deliver a lot of really interesting information in an engaging and relatable manner. We’ll cover a bit of brain anatomy, neuroscience, history, psychology, cognitive therapy, pain management, emotional resilience, consciousness and much more.
Each week, along with the meditation training, we watch a brief video or two on relevant topics by some of the worlds leading minds on mindfulness and wellbeing.
But as always, what we learn and practice in the class environment is only the start.
The essence of mindfulness practice is personal practice, each person investing in themselves. This is where all the riches and benefits are realised – taking a little bit of time for you each day, choosing to be fully present, aware of what is happening in your world in this moment.
The inner battle to be content vs my desire to prove myself has become more settled. I can’t say exactly when it happened but there seems to be a truce. The one major change in my life has been my consistency with my mindfulness meditation and my efforts to embrace the present moment.
“Now is usually good, and if it’s not good, it’s usually enough.”
That was it! I imagine that for most people that would seem a pretty inconspicuous and unimportant statement. But for me, it was significant.
We live life moment by moment (a phrase you’ll hear a lot in mindfulness circles) but the only moment we really have is this one right now. So as you’re reading this, pause for a moment and drink in all that is going on around you – the colours, scents, sounds, sensations of the body. It feels good, doesn’t it!
