Improve Your Wellbeing through Mindfulness and Meditation
Improved performance, reduced stress and greater satisfaction in work and life
Being mindful makes it easier to savour the pleasures in life as they occur, helps you become fully engaged in activities, and creates a greater capacity to deal with adverse events.
Mindfulness also improves physical health
Scientific studies have shown that mindfulness can help improve focus and concentration, relieve stress, treat heart disease, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain, improve sleep and alleviate gastrointestinal difficulties.
Preventing Depression and Enhancing Human Potential by Combining Modern Science with Ancient Wisdom
Mindfulness involves consciously bringing awareness to your here-and-now experience with openness, interest, and receptiveness. In essence, it is ‘the art of conscious living’. It is a profound way to enhance psychological and emotional resilience, and increase life satisfaction. By focusing on the here and now, many people who practice mindfulness find that they are less likely to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets over the past, are less preoccupied with concerns about success and self-esteem, and are better able to form deep connections with others. Experience more calmness and peacefulness, develop self-acceptance and self-compassion and learn to let go of self-defeating thought processes.
We tailor our mindfulness and meditation programs to individuals, small groups of individuals, as well as corporate groups.

I have never ever slept so well and my old energy levels have completely returned and what he did with the our group in a short space of time was extraordinary – George.
The classes are a weekly pleasure and inspiration. It has been a supportive class; talking about experiences and being listened to with genuine interest from Gene and the other participants. Several meditation techniques have been introduced and among them mindfulness meditation is an effective method for me which gives me a great sense of inner peace and has opened doorways to being more present in life.
