Course taught by NeLi Martin, a qualified psychologist who integrates her psychology training and many years of mindfulness study and practice; Rachel Collis, a consultant psychiatrist.

Mindfulness' is a hot topic in Western psychology, recognised as an effective way to reduce stress, increase self-awareness, enhance emotional intelligence, and effectively handle painful thoughts and feelings. As seen in the ABC series Making Australia Happy

Although mindfulness has only recently been embraced by Western psychology, it is an ancient practice found at the base of a wide range of Eastern philosophies, including Buddhism, Taoism and Yoga. Mindfulness involves consciously bringing awareness to your here-and-now experience with openness, interest, and receptiveness. Mindfulness is about waking up, connecting with ourselves, and appreciating the fullness of each moment of life.

Buddhist centres can be a practical resource to learn mindfulness, and Chenrezig Institute in the Sunshine Coast hinterland provides secular courses such as these, universally welcoming everyone; no matter what background you're from!

The practice of mindfulness is unique in both its simplicity and its intelligence; by seeing things as they really are, beyond mere concepts and intellect; assisting in the development of wisdom to recognise what is true and what is real about the world we live in.
