A 3-HOUR WORKSHOP ON MINDFULNESS AND RELATIONSHIPS
‘Ultimately, Mindfulness is the wisdom that affords choice.’
IN THIS WORKSHOP
LEARN what it means to be mindful in our relationships.
UNDERSTAND how our own beliefs, patterns and hang-ups affect how we see ourselves and others.
EXPERIENCE the freedom gained through increased self-awareness and how this improves effective communication in relationships.
DEVELOP the power or attention and intention to support deeper, more meaningful, intimate and real relationships with significant people in your life.
LEARN to trust your own experience more and when to set boundaries based on it.
RE-DISCOVER your innate ability to form a healthy relationship with both yourself and others.
EVERYTHING IS A RELATIONSHIP
We are in relationship with our partner, our children, our family, our work, with our friends as well as with people we find challenging. We are in relationship with ourselves and ultimately with life itself.

‘When I accept myself, I am freed from the burden of needing you to accept me.’ – Dr Steve Maraboli
LET GO AND LET BE
Explore the power of being present for both your own experience and being in the company of other people. Understand more fully what it is truly like to be heard and why we all need this.
Notice more fully the under-currents in our relationships; how often our words don’t match or can’t fully express what we are feeling. See how a greater awareness of our present moment feeling experience empowers us to make better choices and to be able to respond to challenging situations like conflicts with wisdom, including both asserting, being able to walk away and to set healthy boundaries.
Discover the tremendous freedom and joy that arises when we deepen into our experience and lessen off the need to fix ourselves or fix other people. Explore what it means to start from a place of genuine self-compassion.

Testimonials for the Mindfulness Works Introductory Course:
“The course was very relaxed and friendly, and full of useful practical advice that recognised the limits to time that everyone faces. Also I liked the mix of people attending, with a range of different reasons for being there.” — Rosie Cree
“Since doing this course, I have been sleeping much better, I feel much more in control of my emotions, I have enjoyed ‘noticing’ my own state, but also it has transferred to everything around. This means I am re-enjoying many things that I had been taking for granted.” — Sandy Good
“The course guidebook was a useful guide and very informative. I also enjoyed the formal practice and the way different strategies were explained.” — Linda Daniell
