Do you suffer from stress and the suffering associated with stress?
Breathworks teaches mindfulness skills to help improve your quality of your life.
Stressful things happen and often we can’t do very much about them.
Mindfulness helps us to deal with stressful situations by coming back to what’s happening right now. OK, so you might still be under pressure to get that job done, you may still be stuck in that traffic jam or the weather may be awful - again! But that’s all.
Mindfulness will help you discover that you don’t have to live with with all the unhelpful thoughts and feelings that our minds tend to throw up in reaction to stressful experiences. Mindfulness practice doesn’t get rid of problems – while we’re alive we’ll always have problems – it helps us to change our relationship with them.
