happiness wales

Relative Happiness is happiness that depends on things outside ourselves, such as affluence or social standing. While the happiness such things bring us is certainly real, it shatters easily when external conditions changes.

Absolute Happiness, on the other hand is something we must find within. When we are in touch with our true nature, our authentic self, we find a happiness that cannot change with time, it is eternal. This kind of happiness is unaffected by external factors, welling forth from the depths of one’s life. This kind of happiness persists no matter what we might be lacking or what might happen around us. It is when we live our lives mindfully that we can find true happiness..

WEEKLY MINDFULNESS SESSIONS

We offer 1 and a half hour sessions weekly, these sessions run parallel to the 8 weeks course and are opened to all, whether you are attending the 8 weeks course or not.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is:

  • Awareness of the present moment
  • Awareness of our breath
  • Awareness of others and of our environment.

It is developed by purposefully paying attention in a non-judgmental way, to what is going on in your  body and mind, and in the world around us.

Staying in touch in this way from one moment to the next, this shift in awareness, may lead to seeing things somewhat differently, perhaps to feeling less stuck, or to a sense of having more options, more strength and more confidence in your possibilities, more wisdom…. It is when we connect our individual mind to the greater mind that this shift in awareness happens.

The course aims to assist you in taking better care of yourself and in getting the most out of living. The majority of people completing the programme report lasting physical and psychological benefits including:

  • an increased ability to relax
  • greater energy and enthusiasm for life
  • heightened self-confidence
  • an increased ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations.

The aim of the programme is to learn new ways to handle challenging physical sensations, feelings, moods or social interactions.

 

Mindfulness and Meditation

Research is beginning to show that meditation brings more positivity into your life as well as helps you understand and overcome negative emotions. But how

The answer lies within our minds.

Your brain has the ability to reorganize itself, we have the ability to tap into that capacity and positively change the way we think and respond to experiences and outside circumstances over time.

The technical term for this amazing power of the brain is Neuroplasticity this is a natural ability we all possess and that is the answer as to how meditation helps to rewire our brain to engage in more positive thoughts and feelings.

Neuroplasticity, also referred to as brain plasticity or brain malleability, is the brain’s ability to change its structure and organization over time by forming new neural connections or pathways as we experience, learn, and adapt. A neural pathway is a synaptic connection between neurons that is formed when we learn something or gain new information.

The Mindfulness Course:

The Mindfulness course is run over 8 weeks in 2 hour sessions in the day or evening.  A whole day of mindfulness practice is included in the program, this one day gives  participants the opportunity to put into practice what has been learnt over the eight weeks.

To get the most out of coming to the class requires some work and each participant is encouraged to undertake one-hour of home practice a day between classes. It requires a strong commitment to work on yourself , I can help you achieving great results by giving you  a gentle but rigorous daily discipline of meditation and relaxation. With regular practice and perseverance mindfulness practice has proven to be extremely successful.

This course is ongoing. You can join at any time for 8 weeks , it runs from October till mid July with breaks on school holidays.

Mindfulness CourseWho is this course for?

This programme is known to benefit people with a range of problems of both a physical and a psychological nature, but it is not necessary to have a specific health problem to find it helpful.
The problem or illness itself may not change but the way we relate to and cope with the difficulty may shift, making it all feel easier.
Developing greater awareness can open us to be able to change how we approach our experiences – taking more pleasure in the good things and dealing more effectively with the difficulties. We can see how often we are missing the moments of our lives! We can see how our habitual and reflex reactions to events often add layers of difficulty for us on top of the original problem!
The course is therefore potentially open to any of us who are at a point in our lives where we wish to, and are ready, to look deeply at ourselves.

People do also come to mindfulness courses to gain skills in dealing with particular conditions. I have worked with people with a range of problems including:
• Heart disease
• Chronic pain
• High blood pressure
• Headaches
• Anxiety and panic
• Depression
• Sleep disturbance
• Fatigue
• Cancer and other long term illnesses
• Skin disorders.

Summary of the course

• The aim of the course is to learn new ways to handle our moods and emotions.

• It teaches us to take better care of ourselves so that we are able to live our lives in a fuller and healthier way.

• It promotes a way of being that helps us tackle life problems – physical, mental, social and emotional

• The focus of the mindfulness practice is to learn to be aware of the small changes in the physical sensations in your body; what is happening in the world around you (using your physical senses) and your thoughts, emotions and moods.

• The course programme encourages us to develop the skill of being aware of our experiences (good and bad, pleasant and unpleasant) from moment to moment -so that we can learn to respond more skilfully to situations rather than simply reacting automatically.

• Overall, the course is often helpful in dealing with an ongoing difficulty – the problem may not change but the way we can learn to relate to it differently.
