Mindfulness 2.0 is the official 4 Week in-depth follow-up course for people who have completed an Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation course or who have existing Mindfulness and Meditation experience.
DEVELOP A DAILY MINDFULNESS PRACTICE
DEEPEN YOUR SENSE OF JOY AND PRESENCE
ALLOW MORE SELF-LOVE
One of our biggest challenges as mindfulness practitioners is developing a sustained, regular mindfulness practice. This course addresses this challenge with practical ways to foster a daily practice. It also offers the supportive environment of a group of people all intending to practise on a regular basis.
As we continue to practise mindfulness, we often notice a deeper appreciation of life, our environment, our relationships and our self. A sense of natural presence can start to re-emerge, which has an openness and depth to it. We are less likely to be thrown off course by the challenges in life as we have a deeper sense of connection and intimacy with our own tender humanity.
One of the most debilitating aspects of modern life is self-criticism and self-judgement. This can arise in very subtle ways that endlessly plague us, telling us we should be different than we are. Mindfulness allows us to see through the lies of this self-judgement as we start to recognise and feel our own natural OKness. We are less needing to ‘improve’ or change ourselves as we accept more and more our life and ourselves, just as we are.

SAFETY, SECURITY AND CONNECTION
The Mindfulness 2.0 course is an innovative approach to mindfulness and meditation. The course is based on your own experiential learning, core formal meditation, personal development practicing with others, and the core components of well-being, safety, satisfaction and connection.
SAFETY — Understand and feel what it is like to be OK with our experience, even in difficult times. Learn to rely more and more on your own presence for your own well-being.
SATISFACTION — Realise you are OK – just as you are, even if your mind is saying something different. Discover the real benefits and joys of a regular formal meditation practice.
CONNECTION — Feel connected to something bigger than yourself and feel greater intimacy with yourself, life and with other people.

The approach by all Mindfulness Works teachers is straightforward, practical and heartfelt and directed towards you discovering your own innate wisdom and authentic experience.
Annie Harvey – Hove, Adelaide
Teacher, tutor, speaker and wellbeing coach since 1999, Annie works one-on-one and in workshops to help with stress management and encourage people to live their life with purpose. Trained formally in MBSRT (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Adolescents) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Annie believes that living a life on purpose whilst using mindfulness skills in everyday life, is the only way to experience real joy and success.
Annie was introduced to mindfulness when going through a difficult time in her life. She began studying and practising mindfulness and meditation as well as devouring hundreds of personal development books. These practices had a profound impact on her life and she wanted to share the skills with others. She hopes that teaching mindfulness within her community will provide an opportunity for people to experience moments of calm, joy and connection in this busy digital world that we all live.
Annie attends silent retreats in Thailand and Australia. Both lifelong learners and travellers, Annie lives with her husband Mark and their labradoodle, Meg, near the beach in Glenelg. They are also both trained Laughter Yoga Leaders which always provides a good conversation starter.

Anne now supports people to deal with the pressures of daily life through mindfulness-based practices; guiding her clients to replenish and regenerate the mind-body emotion connection with emphasis on breath awareness and balancing the nervous system.
