Mindfulness is a practical and simple practice of being present, relaxation and self-awareness.
Over time and with regular practice, many people find that mindfulness can assist them to experience less stress, anxiety and worry. They also tend to experience more joy and greater degrees of self-acceptance.
“Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex…This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety. …The researchers found that the meditators showed a pronounced shift in activity to the left frontal lobe. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before.” – Psychology Today
Many people who practice mindfulness regularly, over time find that they:
Experience less stress, anxiety and worry
Improve sleeping patterns
Feel more self-acceptance and self-love
Reduce reactivity and increase emotional intelligence
Experience more joy
Most evidence suggests the reason for these positive changes are a result of the psycho-physical experience of relaxation that formal mindfulness practice causes – blood pressure drops, heart rate slows and our breathing slows and deepens.
They also suggest that with regular, long-term practice our brain ‘rewires’ itself so that the neural pathways that make us calmer and less reactive are strengthened and used more frequently.
Lastly, with the increased self-awareness that occurs with long term mindfulness practice, people are able to make decisions that are better for them, rather than reactive decisions based on anger, fear or stress.
The Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation course has been designed to give you a tacit experience of mindfulness and to assist you in developing the habit of a regular practice. It is designed for you to experience the benefits of mindfulness for yourself, rather than just learn about them.
