WHAT IS MINDFULNESS
In essence, Mindfulness is an approach which encourages paying attention, in the moment, helping individuals to 'see things differently' through increased patience, less reactivity, more self-care and developing a better empathetic understanding of themselves and others.
The practice of Mindfulness is seen as a way in which individuals can manage stress, gain clearer focus and bring themselves in the present moment. In the fast paced world focused on targets and the bottom line where do Leaders find the time to reflect, regroup, reassess and connect not just with themselves but with their people?
Judith can offer short Mindfulness sessions to individuals or small groups. She is also currently undertaking a Professional Doctorate at Bournemouth University researching the effect of Mindful practices on Leadership capacity.
To help with present moment awareness Judith has developed a set of Mindfulness Cards which help people to take 'purposeful pause' during the busyness of their working day. The cards have been developed by using Judith's own photography and quotes that have inspired her over the years. By taking a moment to pick a card and then reflect upon it, in the present moment, Judith hopes it will allow some space and stillness to enter for a few moments. She recommends creating a daily practice in which you take a few minutes to sit with the image and/or quote.
Packs of cards are available to purchase by completing the following form with you details. Once received a pack will be sent to you at a price of £6 plus postage and packing.
