Anyone can learn and practice mindfulness. It’s simple yet challenging.
You can practice it anywhere, anytime… and the results can be life changing.
Sydney Mindfulness Training offers mindfulness training to individuals and groups in both the private and corporate sectors. A core programme is the 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program in which participants are taught, encouraged and supported to be "fully present in the here and now, being in touch with what is going on inside us and around us".
Mindfulness meditation is easy to understand conceptually but more challenging in practice. The course, underpinned by research and theory, is structured around experiential exercises. This gives participants a real insight into what it feels like to be mindful.
Rita draws on 20 years of experience to present an 8 week course, in a lighthearted and fun environment, that gives participants a sense of the wonderful life changing benefits of living mindfully.
Mindfulness is a non-judgmental approach to paying attention to the present moment. By practicing mindfulness you can change the way you think about your experiences and therefore cope more effectively with everyday stress, including anxiety, chronic pain or mild depression. MBSR teaches us how to bring mindfulness (awareness) into each day so as to better cope with the inevitable ups and downs of life. It incorporates techniques such as meditation, gentle yoga and mind-body exercises to help people cope with stress.
The MBSR program involves 8 two and a half-hour sessions plus one full day session, taking place over eight weeks. This highly participatory, practical course includes:
Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation
Gentle stretching and mind-body awareness exercises
Group discussion aimed at increasing awareness in everyday life
Essential daily home practices that concretise the benefits
Techniques that can be practised anywhere, anytime, to fit into your lifestyle.
Workbook, selected readings and a series of guided meditations
