Mindfulness Works offers practical, non-religious and accessible mindfulness and meditation courses. Our vision is to “significantly improve the mental health and well-being of all and to foster self-acceptance and self-love in all.”
Keeping it real
If mindfulness and meditative practices have any value, it must be in our actual real life experience. Therefore, a strong emphasis in all Mindfulness Works courses and retreats is placed on your own experience. By relating the principles and practices back to your every-day interactions, relationships and life situations, it means that you get to actually ‘road test’ it. You can then start to become your own teacher more and more as you deepen in your understanding of how mindfulness works. If there is ever a conflict between the formal teacher’s sharing and your own experience, the encouragement is to trust your own experience.
