THE POWER OF KINDFULNESS
Mindfulness + Kindness = Kindfulness
This is the formula backed by science* for a balanced brain, happy mind and meaningful relationships.
When your mind wanders excessively, you think mainly about the past or future. And usually about all the things that went wrong or could go wrong.
As one study stated, a wandering mind is an unhappy mind**.
“About 47% of waking hours spent thinking about what isn’t going on“
Mindfulness practices reshape your brain’s neural pathways for attention and focus in the present moment. Mindfulness also gives you feedback – so you are much clearer about what you’re thinking, feeling and doing.
But that’s just the first step.
Without the right attitude, mindfulness can just end up highlighting negative thoughts and emotions without the key tool to soothe and heal your body and mind.
Therefore, the second step, cultivating kindness and discovering how to make friends with your mind is so important.
By training your brain towards kindness, compassion and self-compassion, true transformation can take place.
The value of combining mindfulness with kindness and compassion is not just based by western science. The essence of kindfulness is from ancient eastern teachings. These teachings never taught mindfulness alone – they always included huge amounts of kindness and compassion practices too.
Through this program you also discover something you may have never learnt in other mindfulness or compassion classes: the value and method for being extremely kind to your own body and mind.
You’ll discover that sitting or lying down very comfortably is an act of kindness to yourself. And the key to effective kindfulness.
You’ll also discover why you need to stop trying to control your mind and instead kindly listen and let go. This can lead to deep experiences of peace, relaxation and joy.
So, if you like the sound of this program, and want to go from being a control freak to a kindfulness freak, have a go at this fun, unique and transformative program!
*hundreds of research studies show both mindfulness and compassion have beneficial effects on body, mind and relationships.
