where & when HEALING WEEKEND 11-13 West Cliff Road, West Cliff
Bournemouth BH2 5EU 1 April 2012, 15H00PM â€“ 17H00PM Mindfulness is a particular way of paying attention: with mindful intention, in the moment, without judgement. Sometimes in life, we feel isolated and are faced with stressful situations and difficulties. In an attempt to make sense of these difficulties we often and naturally so, experience fear, stress and sadness. At times we get stuck in these reactive states of mind and need some support in moving forward. Mindfulness based training is an ancient approach applicable to modern day living. It is an approach rooted in non-judgementally befriending our situation with more understanding, openness, acceptance and skill. Through this befriending we give ourselves an opportunity to foster a more positive and meaningful relationship with our situation, our very own lives and our community. Doing this can sometimes help us move forward.
