Mindfulness Training in Melbourne

What is Mindfulness?

Perhaps the simplest definition of Mindfulness is Paying Attention!

The conscious and deliberate direction of our attention to the present moment; without judgement.

Mindfulness practice involves being aware of our thoughts, feelings, our body and the surrounding environment, as an observer, without judgement of these feelings and thoughts.

Mindfulness is non-judgmental. It allows us to see things how they actually are rather than what we think about them.

What can I expect from mindfulness?

One of the first benefits of practising mindfulness is your capacity to move out of an aroused, stressed state, into a calmer, reflective state. In this state, you have the choice to respond to any situation with an open and relaxed mind.

Through mindfulness you develop skills to:

  • Consciously act and respond with awareness and clarity rather than react out of habit
  • Bring greater concentration and focus to your daily activities, becoming more efficient
  • Monitor levels of stress and distress, and take effective steps to address them, having more psychological flexibility in difficult situations.
  • Knowing what actions to take, increasing your physical, emotional & mental health.

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” – Henry David Thoreau

Client Feedback

Please visit our testimonials to see a sample of what others had to say about their experience with Mindfulness.

“So many courses out there are theory based, and are unable to build the bridge with real life situations. This is where this course is different as it is individualised and tailored to YOUR specific, real life everyday issues…. The most precious gift that I will be passing onto my 3 children is definitely MINDFULNESS ……..because with this state of mind , they will be able to stop and make mindful good and solid decisions, respond to external situations in a non habitual or repetitive way, break any negative self sabotaging thoughts and behaviour, engage in healthy relationships, have a healthy self image, manage stress, understand others behaviour, develop a deep sense of love and compassion and be able to remain still in each precious moment and really saviour the “NOW”. Daniel, I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the incredible gift of Mindfulness in which you have taught me.

This gift is having an amazing ripple effect, and everyday, I am continuing to practise, observe, and simply be in each precious moment. Your gentle nature, patience, ability to teach and passion is such a credit to the person with whom you are. You are such a gift to humanity. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to simply seek inner peace and happiness…”
