What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness in its essence is awareness training. It is a meditation based training that helps us become more conscious of our inner world and the way we respond to our environment. We all experience moments of stress and anxiety, that’s part of life. Often, in these moments, our natural reactivity (‘fight or flight’) takes control and we feel we have no longer a choice, leading to feelings of being overwhelmed, anxiety, nervousness, not being able to focus, …
Over time, with guidance and regular training, it is possible to become more conscious of what is happening to us in these difficult moments. That is when we start realizing we are no longer completely overwhelmed, we feel we can recover faster and start to live with more moments of personal choice, ease, focus and growth.
“Just as a sailor can position a sail to make the best use of the pressure of the wind to propel the boat.
You can’t sail straight into the wind, and if you only know how to sail with the wind at your back, you will only go where the wind blows you.
But if you know how to use the wind’s energy and are patient, you can sometimes get where you want to go.
You can still be in control.”
