Overview

Overview

Sometimes it can feel like there are a million tabs open in your brain. Mindfulness isn’t about trying to close them, but learning to simply observe thoughts and emotions instead. In challenging times, it’is both a skill and an experience that can bring clarity, compassion and comfort to the present moment.

In this private, live-streamed class, an expert trained in evidence-based approaches will talk you through the core philosophy of the approach, before inviting you to practice by meditating with them in companionable silence.

Treatment

During your session

The mindfulness experts in our community use evidence-based approaches, perfectly balancing the theory of stress and distraction with practical tools like meditation. Over a two-way video call, they’ll chat with you about your present mood and goals for the session, before introducing the principles of mindfulness so you can work to cultivate the state more often.

Once you’ve found a comfy place to sit down and lean back, they’ll guide you (or simply let silence guide you) into a meditative state, giving you space and time to observe your thoughts and feelings. Depending on your goals, they may also introduce breathing, mental noting or visualisation techniques.

Towards the end of your session they’ll gently invite you to open your eyes and return to the room, before chatting with you about your experience. They may also suggest anchoring techniques you can use to return to mindfulness in your day-to-day.
