Mindfulness is a
powerful tool to help you
experiences skillfully, and
leads to deep inner peace.
The practice of mindfulness
simply means letting go of
struggle and attachment, so
we can rest in a state of
equilibrium called 'being
here now.' It is a
meditative practice, where
we focus our attention upon
our experience from moment
to moment - embracing it,
without judgement, before
taking skilful action.
We practice mindfulness
to allow our minds to be as
the sky. The clouds, rain,
winds, sleet, snow,
rainbows, come and go, but
the sky remains the same, a
backdrop for all these
passing phenomena. In the
same way, all our feelings,
thoughts and sensations are
like the weather that passes
through, without affecting
the nature of the sky
itself. In this way, our
minds can be balanced and
centered, without getting
carried away by every

Hi there Folks,
It’s coming up towards Christmas – traditionally a time of
joy, peace and love.
Yet for whatever reason, it often
doesn’t unfold this way.
Many of us find it difficult to forgive ourselves for things
that we have done or left undone,
or to forgive others
for what they have done or left undone in relation to us.
This is understandable, however the consequence of this is
that we are wedded to whatever we don’t forgive,
and in the
remembering continue to traumatise ourselves - ongoing.
‘As long as you don’t forgive, who, or whatever it is, will
occupy an rent free space in your mind.’
Forgiveness doesn’t mean that we ever condone whatever feels
Abuse of any form, cannot be tolerated.
So we are committed to the best of our ability, to never
let this happen again.
However, for most people, forgiveness is a process.
the end, when you let yourself feel the pain you carry from
forgiveness comes as a relief – a release.
You will see that forgiveness is fundamentally for your own
‘Forgiveness doesn’t change the past, but it does enlarge
the future’ Anon.
I’m offering a five session course where you will connect
explore and find a way begin to free yourself from the
profound pain of the past experiences,
that continue to feel
unforgivable, and which keep intruding into the present.
