‘Being’ is the term we give to the state of mind when you have a neutral and accepting awareness and attention to what is happening in the present moment.
Although you can never totally empty your mind of the ‘back chat’ of thoughts, through practising the techniques of the Mindfulness is Now (MIN) programme, you learn to be more present and aware – with an open heart and an open mind to this experience.
By being in the present moment, you have the opportunity to feel more fully alive; noticing the tug of the past and future, but focussed more completely on the present and its potential.
The MIN programme helps you to come off autopilot and bring a beginner’s mind to your experience. By being mindful you become present and look at life with a fresh approach, being kind to yourself in a non-judgmental way, freeing yourself from old habits while knowing that the future is yours to create.
Many who practice mindfulness report that it can enhance their creativity, emotional resilience, clarity of thought and co-operation while reducing stress, feelings of powerlessness, fatigue and somatic illness.
