Mindfulness Meditation

“Meditation is simply about being yourself and knowing who that is.”
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

Meditation was always something I was surrounded by as a child – though it was around 15 years ago that I started to explore meditation independently and more meaningfully. I’ve tried various different kinds of meditation over the years, then after several retreats and courses, including a 10-day silent retreat at the Tushita Meditation Centre, I completed my level 2 mindfulness teacher training with the Mindfulness Association.

Benefits of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a compelling approach we can all learn; it can help us to reduce stress and anxiety among many other things such as chronic pain and trauma. Research shows that meditation results in significant physical and mental health benefits after as little as eight weeks of daily practice.

As we learn how to practise, we can become more aware of our mind and body, and we can begin to deepen our understanding of self, which can help to reduce stress levels and cultivate an inner calmness that allows us to face life’s challenges.

Part of learning mindfulness leads to a greater sense of body awareness and a much better connection to the breath. When we have this understanding of body, breath and mind, we start to notice our habitual patterns, which offers up opportunities for change.
