Mindfulness

Mindfulness

Modern life can sometimes become an exhausting and overwhelming battle with circumstances. We can start to live life on automatic pilot, rushing from one thing to the next, without really being aware of what is happening around us. With mindfulness we start to see more clearly what is going on in our lives; experiences don’t overwhelm us and we can remain steady through life’s ups and downs.

The taster sessions we run at SPECTRA are a great introduction to the Breathworks approach to Mindfulness for Stress, Pain and Illness.
We will look at what mindfulness is and discuss a few common misconceptions. There will be opportunities to experience some of our meditation practices such as body awareness, breathing exercises, mindful movement and compassion acceptance.

By the end of the session you will have something to take away and use in daily life, we can look at next steps that could help you further, such as a longer eight-week course.

There will be time for a cup of tea or coffee at the end and if you would like to talk to Ben, our Breathworks-accredited trainer, there will be an opportunity to do this.

We really look forward to seeing you discover the amazing benefits of mindfulness.
