Would you like to be more mindful? If so, you’re in the right place! Welcome to Mindfulness Bournemouth – provider of mindfulness training and coaching across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. I’m dedicated to helping local people gain more happiness and freedom through mindfulness and meditation practices. Discover more about mindfulness.
Mindfulness is primarily about awareness – being aware of what we experience. Bodily sensations, feelings, thoughts and things coming in through the senses. Awareness leads to acceptance, a peaceful mind, and skilful action. When we’re mindful and in the present moment, we’re aligned and in harmony with what is.
The opposite of being mindful is being lost in thought. When we’re lost in thought, we’re resisting our present moment experience – leading to stress and unskillfulness. Mindfulness practice helps us become less lost in thought and more mindful. Mindfulness is cultivated over time. And the good news is that even small mindfulness improvements yield big benefits. When we intentionally live in the present moment, we enjoy what the world’s offering at that point in time, rather than looking behind us or to the future for happiness.
If you decide to speak to me or meet me, you’ll realise that I’m absolutely passionate about mindfulness – it’s helped me tremendously! Teaching mindfulness to others is an act of gratitude and it feels great. I’m also passionate about Bournemouth. I genuinely care about my clients. What’s important to me is to see people making positive changes in their lives; suffering less and experiencing more peace and happiness 🙂
