Principles of Mindfulness Works mindfulness and meditation training
- All mindfulness and meditation instructions are non-religious.
- Emphasis is placed on trusting your own experience and all teachings are grounded in your own experience.
- The most important teacher is yourself.
- Training environments are kept safe.
- Anyone is free to ask questions at any time.
- Mindfulness and meditation are restorative practices more than remedial (they restore us to our natural feelings of ok-ness and ease rather than ‘fix’ something that is wrong).
- All formal teachers and facilitators have regular mindfulness and meditation practices.
- Mindfulness must be actually practised to be useful (rather than just talked about).
- All courses and retreats come with a money-back guarantee.
Keeping it real
If mindfulness and meditative practices have any value, it must be in our actual real life experience. Therefore, a strong emphasis in all Mindfulness Works courses and retreats is placed on your own experience. By relating the principles and practices back to your every-day interactions, relationships and life situations, it means that you get to actually ‘road test’ it. You can then start to become your own teacher more and more as you deepen in your understanding of how mindfulness works. If there is ever a conflict between the formal teacher’s sharing and your own experience, the encouragement is to trust your own experience.
