Mindfulness can help manage wellbeing and mental health, and with regular practice the benefits can include: reduced levels of anxiety, stress and depression, improved sleep quality and increased ability to manage difficult situations.
An important part of mindfulness is reconnecting with our bodies and the sensations they experience. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment. It is not about trying to forcibly change things but instead trying to accept the way things are, for better or for worse, and then changing our responses. Our life may still contain a lot of difficulty if we live with pain or illness for example, but quality of life can be greatly improved. Group sessions held alternate Thursday evenings, with a maximum of 10 participants.
