Mindfulness may seem like a recent trend but Eastern cultures have experienced its benefits for thousands of years, passing its teachings from generation to generation.

Here in the West we turn to science for guidance, tending to dismiss what we can't prove and yet who knew in the 1970s we'd be able to face time someone thousands of miles across the world, for free; in real time; and on a small phone.

So perhaps it's time to entertain the idea that not everything that is possible is fully described in science.  In fact, in the field of neuroscience, researchers are only just touching the surface when it comes to understanding the powers of the mind.

Despite it's name, mindfulness goes beyond our mind.  It's a way of coming to understand our entire experience as it arises in the present moment.  It encompasses our mind, body and emotions and gives us an appreciation of how they interact to create our experience.

It sounds simple doesn't it and the mechanics are.

The biggest challenge to mindfulness and indeed our personal well being is

our automatic pilot and our dominant thought patterns. 

So mindfulness allows us to pause and observe our experience and develop the skills to choose how we respond.  This is why mindfulness is implicated in so many areas such as stress reduction; emotional intelligence; leadership; resilience and general well being. 

At Just Breathe we are committed to continuous personal development so what we offer grows continually.  So have a look around and feel free to message me with any questions or enquiries.

Here is a summary.....

A toe in the water..

If you're curious but not ready for commitment, our Monday drop in session could be the place to start.  We also run mini courses introducing mindfulness and meditation; or day retreats.  

Stress & Emotional Well Being

If you're interested in stress interruption or emotional resilience and comfortable working online at your own pace, then Mind21 is a good place to start.  You can add weekly one to one support if required, subject to availability,  via Mind21+.  

Introduction or General Interest (includes a qualification)

The mindfulness based living course (MBLC) provides a really comprehensive introduction to mindfulness, progressing attendees through the stages of mindfulness, compassion training and introduces the powerful concept of insight. Suitable for all levels and results in a qualification from the British Mindfulness Association.  This runs for 9 weeks, for 6 - 15 people via a weekly zoom class.

Leadership

If you're a leader, looking to explore your own inner work or a conscious leader wanting to provide authentic support to your team, both courses have something to offer.   Mind21 is completely online and has additional material on stress interruption and emotional resilience.  The MBLC is a group course running over 9 weeks.  

Corporate 

As more companies become more proactive promoting well being and balance, we can offer one off presentations on mindfulness and its contribution to mental health; or work with you to develop retreat style self development days.  For something more comprehensive and scaleable we can offer corporate access to Mind21 or work with you to develop a personalised online course for your people.  

   

 

What do people say about Mind21?

Your course is incredible - its been an insightful, emotional and life changing journey that will be continued indefinitely!

Working on Mind21 gave me the knowledge and skills I needed to understand my own mind better - like the way my mind wanders constantly and how I demonise myself with negative self talk. 

 

Throughout the 21 days, I really began to appreciate myself for what I do just to exist, and that in itself is incredible. 

 

The techniques I have learnt have given me a coping mechanism for when I'm feeling overwhelmed with stress or anxiety (case in point: exam season) and I feel unequivocally better for it. 

 

I am learning to be kinder to myself and to prioritise my mental health a little bit more, something I think we could all benefit from. 

 

Thank you Julie always.

MINDFULNESS

 

"We know what we are but not what we may be"

William Shakespeare.

 

How do you really feel?

Stuck or worn out by a reactive pace of life; at a crossroads in your career or emotional life; wondering if this is it?

 

I've been there and it can be a real effort just getting through the day.  Other times we feel great but there's just that niggling doubt that we aren't really fulfilling our potential.

 

So I'm not here to sell you magic beans, because you already have them.

We are all born with the ability to be mindful,  but somewhere along the way it simply gets lost.

What does it involve?

Mindfulness is about getting in touch with who we are underneath all of those personas we adopt.  We start with self awareness and self knowledge and develop the skills to find out what is really going on for us, physically, emotionally and mentally.  It's not always easy to come to face to face with our characteristics so we learn to develop a healthy dose of self compassion.

What's in it for me?

Once we learn about the complex nature of our mind and emotions we're better able to work with them.  It's a proactive way to prevent stress related illnesses and develop a strong sense of emotional resilience.

We are all different but some of the common benefits of the practice are a calmer mind with less chatter or worry; a less critical approach, sharper mental focus and less reactivity.  Mindfulness can have a profound impact on our energy, our well being and even our relationships.   

Where do I go from here?

If you want a bit of a taster, then why not start with mindfulness Monday and see how you get on.

If you are interested in applying mindfulness to, emotional intelligence or stress management, and like to work independently, then MIND21 is a great option for you.   Initially a 21 day course, we've recently upgraded it to include the post course 21 day challenge and 9 relaxation journey.  You have lifetime access to some great materials and if you're considering a wellness strategy for your business, this is a great option as all material is pre-recorded.

If you'd prefer to learn in a group setting, why not consider the mindfulness based living course. 

If there is anything I can help you with, then please feel free to message me and I'll do my best to point you in the right direction.
