Introduction to Mindfulness

Friday 11th August 2017

10am til 3pm

 

What is mindfulness?

 

The quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.

A mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

 

How can mindfulness benefit our lives?

 

The benefits of mindfulness extend to all areas of our lives, improving our health, wellness, performance, relationships, and quality of life.

 

Why use horses?

 

Because horses are fully present and without agenda or judgement, they invite us to be the same.

By becoming aware of the horses nature and innate drive for survival we develop the capacity to respond with “choice” versus “reacting” to the pressures of life.

 

What do I wear and need to bring?

Wear appropriate clothing for time of year, please wear a sturdy boot or shoe (no sandals, open toe shoes, flip flops!) and bring your lunch, light refreshments will be available.

£50 per person
