Mindfulness, meditation &  more

More on mindfulness, meditation and quieting the mind

The practice of mindfulness gives you
tools to measure and manage your life
as you're living it.

It teaches you to pay attention to the present moment, recognising your feelings and emotions and gives you the possibility to decide how to act, especially when faced with difficult situations. 
You're able to both observe and participate in each moment, while recognising the implications of your actions for the longer term. 

I have underlined the word practice above for a reason :-) 

In order to gain awareness and clarity about the present moment, you must be able to quiet your mind to such a degree that you are able to ´listen´ to body, feelings and - indeed - you mind. As you might have experienced, that is difficult and to my opinion it takes daily practice to be able to do it! 
Think about it… you do not expect that one holiday stay at a sports resort will make sure that you are fit for the rest of your life… It takes recurring exercise to stay fit, and the same goes with mindfulness. 

My most important daily practices are meditation, yoga & being in nature, and I try to do it every day. For me Yoga helps to raise awareness of what is going on in my body. Meditation enables me to listen deeply to what is stirring in me, when I look deeper than the daily worries and upsets - providing clarity about what is important to me.
Being in nature and gardening the perma-culture way connects me to the environment and ultimately to all of the world around, giving much needed grounding and connection.

Meditation is highly rewarding, but may not be for everyone. The important thing is to pay respect to who you are right now in this moment, allow what is, and know that you have the possibility for taking charge of what you would like to change.
A first step is to take time every day to pull back from the pressures of life to mindfully reflect on what is happening. 
There are may ways to do it; you just have to find the way that suits you!


At the 'Introduction to mindfulness' groups we explore the background for mindfulness - why and how it works - and several different sorts of exercises and practices, and there is a lot of focus on awareness, acceptance and presence.

The aim with the Further Group ‘Mindful Meetings’ is to support individual attempts to establish and maintain a mindfulness practice - and the prerequisite will be that the participants have some experience with connecting mind and body, quieting the mind etc. via mindfulness, meditation, yoga, t'ai chi or the like.

In this group we follow a general structure and each time both focus on one specific mindfulness activity and then meditate in the group too. We talk about your experiences of how to practice being mindfulness.

For the time being, the mindfulness groups are on hold. If you would like to know more, please email for details .
