THE TUNBRIDGE WELLS MINDFULNESS SCHOOL

Belinda Freeman’s Tunbridge Wells Mindfulness School has arrived AT Freestyle Yoga Project High Street, Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

“Mindfulness is the willingness and capacity to be equally present with all events and experiences with discernment, curiosity and kindness.” (writes Christina Feldman).

Our lives are best enjoyed moment by moment. Mindfulness meditation is an everyday practice.
Mindfulness is not paying attention, but paying attention differently and more wisely and kindly – with the whole mind and heart, and using the full resources of the body and senses.

Mindfulness is mind-body training. A way to rewire your brain from Neanderthal reactions to 2016 responses to cope with our changing, challenging world and present stresses. Like surfing waves, storms, calm seas and everything in between, calmly with acceptance and willingness, letting go, with a beginners mind, open, enjoying the sun and the nature of change. Belinda brings, her extensive knowledge, practice, fun and creativity to her teaching.
Mindfulness based Stress Reduction and Cognitive Therapy have been recommended by the NHS, NICE, The Mental Health Foundation and the Mindfulness Initiative for reduction of Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Pain, Health Management, greater resilience and stress reduction at work.

Mindfulness has developed and gain well deserved positive attention over recent years as a tried-and-tested method of reducing stress, and stress related illness, pain, anxiety, depression, ageing, cancer, pregnancy and postnatal depression, fertility issues, ADHD, mental health issues, childhood anxiety as well as increasing coping with challenges in our daily lives, workplace, creativity, relationships, leadership. By helping us to focus our attention on what is, in the present moment and not getting swept up in worrying or negative thoughts about the past or future, we are learning to enjoy, be grateful and compassionate with what is here now! A regular practice can help us to:
• Learn to cope better with the pressures, changes and challenges of our busy culture.
• Witness our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and cultivate a new perspective on them to reduce suffering and emotional turmoil.
• Learn how our brains and nervous system work in adding to stress and upgrade them with mindfulness for soothing, calm, wise actions and contentment. Practice balanced thinking and actions.
