Mindfulness meditation is 'Paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally' (Jon Kabat-Zinn). You will experience and learn meditation, progressing from simple to more complex techniques for lifelong well-being in a beautiful and secluded rural setting. Meditation can be a powerful tool for regaining and sustaining good health. The practice enables the body to regain its natural state of balance, reactivates the immune system and maximizes the body's own healing potential.
Learn a range of effective tools for dealing with stress and anxiety
Understand the nature of the thinking mind - its strengths and limitations
Understand how "excessive thinking" leads to stress and how stress affects your health and well-being
Learn to relax physically, unwind emotionally and calm a busy mind
Acquire skills for dealing with anger and frustation, become less emotionally reactive and more tolerant
Develop self-esteem and compassion as you connect with your true, spiritual nature.
"I found in mindfulness meditation a simple yet profound practice of patience, presence and compassion. Through this simple practice I began to experience that simply being, with less and less doing, released the spiritual sweetness and nourishment that I had been searching for. Peak experiences, psychic insights, energy surges were all interesting and played their part along the way, but mindfulness practice was grounded, steady and reliable. What is more, I could feel its direct impact on my day-to-day life. At last, I learned to 'just sit' with an attitude which in Zen practice is called 'beginner's mind' - free of expectations, dreams, hopes and judgements." (p.36 Meditation An In-Depth Guide by Ian Gawler & Paul Bedson; published by Allen & Unwin).
