What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present moment. 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. If life is passing you by then contact us using the below contact form.

Can you tell me more?

"Mindfulness means deliberately attending to and becoming more aware of our experience: our thoughts, feelings and body sensations. This allows us to clearly perceive thoughts, physical sensations, emotions and events at the moment they occur without reacting in an automatic or habitual way. Experiences don’t overwhelm us and we become steady through life’s ups and downs."

What is Mindfulness for Positive Wellbeing?

Mindfulness for Positive Wellbeing (MPW) is based on Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) - a relapse-prevention treatment for depression and anxiety. Research indicates that it may be particularly effective for individuals with major depressive disorder (MDD).

What is Mindfulness Based Recovery?

Mindfulness Based Recovery (MBR) tackles the very roots of addictive behavior by targeting two of the main predictors of relapse: negative emotions and cravings. Treatment centers, prisons and Veterans Affairs centers across the country have implemented the program.

What is Reversing the Spiral?

Reversing the Spiral (RTS) is a 3-part programme using in the Recovery College model. Most of us have had periods within our lives when everything seems ‘too much’ and we no longer feel in control. We can feel emotionally drained and have difficulty finding solutions or making progress. RTS builds resilience, emotional intelligence, and offers the skills to flourish in work and life.
