Day Retreats

Mind is the essence of everything.

Due to mind's purity, all becomes pure.

Due to mind's clarity, all becomes clear.

The essence of everything is one's own mind.

 Spring Mindfulness Based Living: The 8 Week Course

With Mindfulness Africa, Carey Would and Kerri Martinaglia

Begins: Saturday 7th October: 9am - 11am (Every Saturday Morning for 7 Consecutive Weeks and a Full Day Retreat)

 

“Although assumed to be subject to our conscious control, most of the time our minds shuttle endlessly between the past and the future. Little time is actually spent living in the present. Yet, our capacity to effectively handle stress, to make informed decisions, and to access previously untapped resources and apply them in challenging, fast-paced business situations all rely on our capacity to be present. Quite literally, only when we are in the present can we optimise our capacity to consciously respond to situations rather than simply react, bring greater concentration and focus to work, and to monitor our level of stress and take effective steps to address it.”Centre for Mindfulness, University of Massachusetts
