What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a process that cultivates present moment awareness where you learn to become more aware of yourself, your environment and those around you. Becoming more aware of our thoughts and emotions gives us the opportunity to engage with them in a different way; In following and learning this process you are able to become more skillful in dealing with life’s challenges (be they physical, mental or emotional) and have the opportunity to change old patterns of behaviour.
