MINDFULNESS WORKSHOPS IN YOUR COMMUNITY

There is no shortage of Mindfulness Workshops out there. They teach us how to get to grips with the concepts of awareness and attention, and how to apply the practices of mindful focus and meditation into our lives. They’re all valuable and effective. But, (you knew that ‘But’ was coming didn’t you?!) having done many of these courses myself over the years, I noticed that they don’t often delve deep enough into the holistic you, into the realms of Who You Are at the core, into what makes you tick, what works for you and what doesn’t. Mindfulness courses over here in the West seem to be afraid of the spiritual side of its practice.

I have studied mindfulness from different perspectives. In my college days when I was studying for my counselling qualifications we looked at mindfulness as a therapy from a psychological and CBT approach. The science. the research and the statistics were hugely important. If you are to know your mind, to then train your mind, you need to become intimate with your mind, to totally explore it. That’s where Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy comes in and that is what most mindfulness-based courses will help you to explore at a mind level.

In isolation, neither of these perspectives would have fully improved my life. They gave me knowledge and understanding of my mechanics at some level, but nothing truly profound or visceral. My experience of mindfulness up to this point didn’t really peel back many layers of my onion!

When I added the third perspective of mindfulness into the mix, the spiritual side, I was able to make mindfulness a fully ‘whole-istic’ experience. This is the power of three! I really re-connected my mind, body and soul. It was the combination of all of the different perspectives which gave me the visceral, deep clarity I needed to know my own mind, to connect it to my body and my soul, my innermost part of me, and this gave my mindfulness practice a profound essence and substance, a 'Wholeness'.

Mindfulness for me became a process of connecting the dots between my mind, body and soul and getting them to work together in unison, rather than regarding them as separate engines.

That is why all of my mindfulness courses and workshops are unique. They expand on traditional mindfulness courses by broadening the perspectives and the topics that they cover. We go deeper into mindfulness and how it can affect every area of your life when you apply its principles there. 

By combining the three different approaches to mindfulness we are able to have a whole-person, ‘wholistic’ experience of it. A deeper knowing.

The whole 360 degrees of knowledge- incorporating equal measures of science, psychology and spirituality- gives me a complete sense of who I am without gaps and room for doubt. 

The wider mindfulness topics that I cover in my workshops include:

  • Mindfulness and Personality
  • Doing and Being Modes
  • Happiness and Life Purpose/Meaning
  • Happiness and Pleasure
  • Who Am I?

What happens at each workshop?

Our community Mindfulness and Meditation workshops take the traditional standard format for mindfulness workshops, and e-x-p-a-n-d-s on them. Instead of mindfulness tuition and practice over a limited set course of 6-8 weeks, in these fortnightly group meet-ups, we cover a different mindfulness topic each time, the topics that have really helped me, and we throw in some meditations, visualizations, cognitive therapy tools, spiritual tools and fun group activities as well! 

Each session runs for 2 hours and in this time we will cover a mindfulness topic, guide you through a meditation plus we make sure to work in ample time for sharing and chatting with each other. We may also have raffles, guest speakers and other special events planned for some of these sessions and you'll be updated on these through your local group. 

Each session is just £10 per person, payable when you attend. There is no commitment required, you can come to every session or just one or two that are of relevance to you. However, the more sessions that you attend, the more you will notice positive changes in your life, and you may also pick up lasting friendships with like-minded people along the way.

Studies show that people who attend just a one month mindfulness course will experience large increases in positive mood, and significant decreases in ruminative thoughts and behaviour. So, what are you waiting for? Delve in, join our mindfulness program by joining a group and get that mindful vibe!

Crisis situations can leave us feeling stressed, afraid and anxious. How do we begin to break through these feelings in a crisis situation? How do we begin to assimilate and process the new world that we find ourselves in? In this online recorded workshop, Rachel discusses and delivers 10 mindful ways to break through fear and panic.

"Due to the prolonged course,  I find for the first time that I can recall the teachings more readily in everyday life. Shorter courses 'come and go' and are forgotten very quickly."
