“Having these tools is essential in living in today’s world & realising that all will be well. It’s very freeing once you start practicing. Classes are performed in such a gentle inclusive non judgemental way” Previous participant
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.
I offer classes in mindfulness both in the corporate world and in the community. To find out more please click on the relevant link below:
Anyone and everyone can learn mindfulness, no exceptions. It just requires some ground rules: that you have no expectations on yourself, that you don’t think that you have to stop your thoughts, that you want to be less critical of yourself and others and that you want to be happier, calmer and more engaged with life. 🙂
I recently had a baby and returned to work full time and life was just so hectic. My friends were saying I needed to look after myself and I should hit the gym and exercise to feel better. I tried this but I just wasn’t getting the head space that I needed from this activity. My mind was racing all the time. I was constantly putting myself under pressure with worry about my new baby girl and also about making a positive impact in the workplace while still running a home and being a good wife, daughter, sister and friend. I was speeding up but I needed to slow down otherwise I knew I would burn out and get sick. I didn’t know what my escape was until I went to Ellen on a one to one and found out about the mindfulness course. It was perfect. An hour to myself once a week with a small group of like minded people. I wanted to slow down, to take in the important moments and mile stones with my baby and still produce good outputs for work. The mindefulness course taught me to slow down, be present, stop judging myself and just be me right now and be happy with it. I won’t lie, I still stuggle but I am far more present with my baby and husband and much more forgiving to myself. I have taken the right steps to slow down and enjoy the present moment. It really is a gift! Thank you
