Mindfulness & Meditation

The stress and demands of modern living were already taking an alarming toll on humans, even before the complexity of a global pandemic entered the arena. Anxiety, stress-related ailments, physical illness and mental illness are a few of the symptoms appearing more and more frequently.  When we learn skills to live in the present moment and quiet the noise of the mind, we can start to recognize our triggers, regulate our responses and cultivate a more compassionate approach towards ourselves and our greater communities or organisations. Although the same principles and techniques are essentially taught in each Mindfulness and Meditation course, the content is designed with a specific group or individual at the heart of it.
