Introduction

Mindfulness is said to have originated in Buddhist thinking and meditation practice over two and a half thousand years ago. Its original purpose was to address and relieve self-induced suffering caused by the dysfunctional ways people habitually tend to respond to their experience. Mindfulness is about learning to direct your attention to your experience as it unfolds. When we neglect our own needs and forget to nurture ourselves we are at danger of deeper levels of unhappiness and low self-esteem.

What is involved?

  • open minded curiosity and acceptance rather than worrying about what has happened or might happen
  • responding skilfully to whatever is happening right now, be that good or bad.
  • relaxation and the importance of self-care
  • benefits of knowing how to relax and identifying relaxation techniques.

Who is this aimed at?

This one off session is aimed at children and young people.  It can be delivered to children in groups and can be class room based with 25+ children.  This workshop is particularly useful in relation to exam stress and anxieties.
