This is a past workshop workshop run with Theva Indrasenan. Working together we offered movement based practices and mindfulness exercises to help participants connect and to feel held.
A great way to practice mindfulness is to check in with yourself through the day.
Being more grounded and present can help in many ways. It can help to stop us being so reactive to triggers, it can also help us to be more aware of our emotions, and more able to process them rather than repress them.
Often, even if we have a regular mindfulness practice, we can find daily life so busy and stressful that we leave that state of present moment awareness far behind.
Mindfulness allows us to be present with our experience, as people, as therapists and as clients. It allows us to bring difficult material to the surface.
Mindfulness is not just an introspective activity, in fact mindful awareness becomes a gift to those around us in relating to them.
