Mindfulness is a life skill we can all employ to deepen our sense of well-being and fulfilment. It helps us to become more resilient and present, reducing stress, anxiety and fatigue. It involves paying attention to what is occurring in our present moment experience, with an attitude of openness and non-judgmental acceptance. It engages all of our senses as we open to our entire experience, becoming aware of our body, emotions, thoughts and external environment. 

7 weeks of online mindfulness training…

During this 7-week programme George will guide you with talks, mindfulness practices and course activities. You will also get a free downloadable course workbook packed with extra information, insights and exercises.

Each week George Langenberg will present:

    •    videos with different exercises and meditations
    •    homework exercises to help deepen your mindfulness practice. Learn more

We’ve all experienced mindfulness!

We have all had a mindful experience in our lives, but perhaps we didn’t realise that we were experiencing it. George says that often we have mindful experiences when we have “been present in places of natural beauty, and simply ‘breathing it in’, whether this was a beautiful sunset or standing next to the sea or a waterfall. Perhaps we have felt this in some heightened moments, being with a loved one, during the birth of a child, or even being with someone who is dying.”

The monkey mind

These moments are not our usual mode of being/thinking. We often move through life on automatic pilot, not really connected with ourselves. Our attention is usually dispersed and juggling work, home, daily tasks and managing stress means that our thoughts and emotions do not get our full attention. This is what we call in yoga the ‘monkey mind’. 

Mindfulness in every moment

Mindfulness teaches us to reverse these habits and cultivate positive ways of being that are more beneficial in making our lives happier and more wholesome. When we can get in touch with qualities of mindfulness, we will feel a sense of coming back home to ourselves in a more meaningful way. Mindfulness is not just about having more blissful moments, it is about being more fully present in our lives, remaining curious, embracing all of our experiences, and most importantly, changing the relationship we have towards our suffering.
