An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Monday, repeating until November 23, 2020


How we perceive the world and Ourselves

How we see (or don’t see) things has a major influence on how we will react or respond to them. In this session we explore how we perceive the world and the relationship between our interpretation of something and what is actually there

Well-being seems to come as much from the approach we bring to our experiences, as from what’s actually happening and what we decide to do next. It is not so much the stressors but our perception of those stressors, and how we handle them, that influences the short- and long-term effects on our minds, bodies and overall health
If we can cultivate healthy approaches to our experiences, we will probably feel better, no matter what is going on. We may have no control over things that happen in life, but we do have some say in our attitudes

The attitudes that we explore in this session are like seeds and just as seeds can flower when tended, these attitudes can grow – if we nurture them. Through the regular practice of the body scan and awareness of breath meditations, we hold a key to transformation; in the gentle practicing of kindness to whatever appears in our present moment experience

However we are feeling, the very fact of knowing and being willing to experience it, even for just a moment, makes the situation workable. We do not have to struggle, force or badger ourselves to become aware, or judge ourselves for having wandered off into automatic pilot and our habitual ways of reacting, instead we practice learning how to just notice and to come back

This process of noticing, and choosing to come back again and again, is the heart of mindfulness practice
