Course Mindfulness
Description

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present moment. When you are mindful, you can observe your thoughts and feelings without judging them good or bad. Instead of life passing you by, Mindfulness enables you to live in the moment and awaken to each experience of your day and life. Mindfulness can also be viewed as a ‘way of life’. From this perspective, this course emphasises the importance of living according to ethical values and explores some of the challenges we can face in doing this and how we might overcome them. The core teaching stresses how to develop mastery over your mind, improve relationships and live in a peaceful and harmonious way as you navigate life’s ups and downs. In as little as eight weeks you will be rewarded with mindfulness skills that will last a lifetime!
