Are you seeking a more peaceful state of mind? Have you heard of Mindfulness but feel like it is just another unachievable goal on an endless “to do” list?
While undertaking a course in Stress Management I discovered Mindfulness. On a personal level it helped me immensely, to work through the grief of losing my Mother 3 years earlier, on reducing a lot of my anxiety and just generally made life as a busy working Mum a whole lot easier.
Forming my own Mindfulness practice was no easy task and I will hold my hands up and say, some days are still an uphill struggle. In the beginning I would just sit there with my eyes closed, constantly bringing my mind back to the breathe, wondering what the point in it all was. When you don’t have anyone to talk to about these experiences you end up sitting there in this loop, questioning whether you are even “doing it right”.
Let me reassure you right now, if you are taking the time to sit and practice every day, you are doing it right. That is the biggest hurdle that I have faced, ignoring all of the lies and excuses not to sit and practice and just getting on with it. So if you have achieved that already pat yourself on the back right now because you are a star!
When I started running meditation groups in my local area I realised how difficult it can be to find a time and day that would suit all of the people who wanted to join in. Single parents and those who work shifts just can’t commit to a once a week class. Then there were those people who’s anxiety surrounding new places/people/experiences would always hold them back from being able to relax and fully participate in the group, so this is where the idea for an online service was born.
Everyone starts off with the same paperwork to complete, this gives me an insight into you and your life, then we have a 1 to 1 chat to get to know each other a little better and decide what the next steps will be. From there each programme goes it’s own path, tailored to suit the needs of each person and flexible enough to adapt as your practice develops.
