Is your mind constantly racing?
Do you find it hard recalling when you were last relaxed or calm?
Are you great at getting physical exercise but put mental wellness on the backburner?
Are you no longer finding wise and caring solutions for yourself?
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is an ever-evolving practice of maintaining an intentional state of heightened awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, or experiences moment-to-moment and returning attention kindly and without judgement back to the present when it wanders.
Over time mental stress can wear you out and create even more anxiety for you.
Anxiety affects everything!
Like the quality of our sleep, energy levels, the ability to concentrate and get things done, to laugh, play and work, and our ability to stay well and fight off illness.
Mindfulness is a meditation-based approach to winding down this harmful mental state.
If you’re coping with something really overwhelming at the moment you may find it helpful to speak to Alison in a counselling session before embarking on a bigger mindfulness journey.
Curious how mindfulness can help you to cultivate calm and wind down anxiety? Get in touch with us to find out more about the 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course (MBSR).
By learning how to be more present in everyday life you will see things more clearly and calmly, notice the effects of stress quicker and make wiser, kinder choices in your life.
With eight weeks of guided practices training and meditating at home you’ll make mindfulness a wellbeing habit for life.

Like all new healthy lifestyle habits mindfulness takes time and the right approach. This is because you will be learning to use your mind in a completely new way!
Learning mindfulness and meditation in the management of stress and anxiety requires the support of a teacher who has a regular mindfulness practice (ask about this!) and if you’re wanting to calm down and settle anxiety and stress someone trained in supporting people experiencing life challenges such as a registered therapist or counsellor.

An important message
Our training and support is inspired by the insight meditation tradition and the teachings of Professor of Medicine Emeritus Jon Kabat-Zinn and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
We recognise and support the realisation that mindfulness and the way of teaching it sensitively and accurately are not exclusive to one wisdom tradition. Rather mindful-ness is a meditative tool, experience, and way of life embraced by many world cultures.
Alison Keane studied under Professor Kabat-Zinn’s direction more than 10 years ago and is one of a small number of Australians accredited with the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine Healthcare and Society to teach MBSR (CFM)
