the mind’s own antidepressant
With people working longer hours, worrying more and sleeping less, anxiety is becoming the modern malaise. The constant stimulation offered by mobile devices and social media means that the mind is always on the go, affecting our ability to concentrate, form memories and relax.
Mindfulness offers valuable tools to deal with these stresses.
Mindfulness is the simpler, less time-consuming but very effective ‘little brother’ of meditation.
Clinical studies show that Mindfulness training results in a 70% reduction in anxiety, with that reduction on-going nearly three years after taking a course.
You may have heard about Google and Facebook running Mindfulness sessions for their staff, but now many smaller companies are also reaping the benefits of having their staff attend regular classes.
Our Mindfulness workshops teach staff to bring their complete attention to the present on a moment-to-moment basis. They will feel more grounded and secure, happier and more engaged in their work, and their minds will become more focused and clear.
Daily Telegraph Health and Wellbeing reporter Judith Woods took part in one of our Mindfulness sessions: read her report here:

When Buddha was asked “What have you gained from meditation?” he replied: “Nothing. However, I have lost anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity and a fear of old age and death.”
