Mindfulness is a practice of purposeful paying attention to the mind, moment to moment, with care and compassion. It is the difference between fact—what is true just now--- and thought—the running commentary of the mind. As we learn to pay direct attention to our experience in this way, the mind/body complex naturally eases. This quality of mind is developed through the practices of meditation and learning to see clearly those habits of mind which are helpful and those which aren’t. As mindfulness strengthens, we learn to handle challenges—mental and physical—with greater ease and clarity.
The practices offered within this membership will give support through guided meditations and other daily practices to help see through the unhelpful habits of mind and cultivate those which are helpful
The meditations are not complex and you don't need to have previous experience or ‘special’ skills. Many of these meditations are short and ideal for beginners, busy people, and anyone who wants to weave more mindfulness & meditation into their day.
