We spend much our time on “automatic pilot,” with our thoughts compulsively following habitual patterns that reinforce distressing emotional states. Mindfulness begins when we recognize our tendency to be on automatic pilot and make a commitment to stepping out of it in order to be aware “in the moment.” As we practice deliberately becoming more aware of our bodies, we notice the strength of our mental and emotional habits and realize that this simple shift to mindfulness can be very rewarding, but can also be hard to maintain.
Dealing with Barriers
As we continue to focus our awareness on the body, we see the chatter of the mind more clearly and begin to notice how our thoughts shape our emotional experience. In the second session, we deal with the issues involved in setting up a regular practice of mindfulness meditation, including problems that participants have experienced in their daily practice.
Mindfulness of Breath
As we learn to accept the seemingly endless chatter of the mind, we discover that intentionally bringing our awareness to the breath helps us to become calmer and less scattered. We begin to notice how the breath and emotional states are interrelated, and how an awareness of the breath leads to greater emotional peace.
The scattered state of the mind is related to our tendency to want to escape unpleasant experiences and to cling to pleasant experiences — reactions that happen automatically. Mindfulness offers a way of relating to our experience with more deliberate awareness and equanimity. We learn not to become despondent about unpleasant experiences nor to cling to pleasant ones. Instead, we find a calmer and more stable place from which to relate to our experiences.

How much time do I need to allocate? This mindfulness course is highly practical and requires you to complete daily home practice to get the most out of the training. You need to set aside about an hour once a week to read the material and complete the written activities. You also need to set aside at least half an hour a day to practice the daily mindfulness meditations.
Where do I record my learnings? You will also be sent a journal that we recommend you print out. The purpose of the journal is to keep a record of your daily experiences of practising mindfulness, to see how your progress develops through the course. The journal also gives you an opportunity to reflect on your experience. If you prefer, you can use your own journal, daily or notebook.
What if I don’t like the course? If you’re not completely satisfied within the first 30 days, you can get all your money back, no questions asked! You just need to email us and let us know. We trust you. So, you have nothing to lose. Grab a place and get cracking – it’s a 100% no-risk, win-win opportunity.
Remember, if you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got. Maybe it’s time for a change.
