Mindfulness – Introduction to Mindfulness

Course Description:

Mindfulness is paying attention, non-judgmentally, in the present moment.

In this 5 week course we will be learning to pay attention to various anchors such as the breath, the body, sounds, thoughts and emotions. The attention we bring is a kind and interested attention to our full experience of each moment. During the practice you may experience moments of peace and ease as your mind begins to settle and clear. We will also learn how to bring mindfulness into our everyday life as we  pause in the midst of our lives, releasing tension from the body and bringing awareness to how we are in the moment, opening up to the world around us, truly knowing what it is to be fully alive.

Please Note:

  • Please bring along their your own  mat and blanket  if you wish to lie down and a cushion to sit on for meditation.

Tutor: Mairead O’ Keeffe

Mairead completed the 8 week MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction)course in 2010 and found it changed her life. She has been practising meditation ever since, attending weekly drop-in meditation classes and going on retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh, a leader in the area of Mindfulness. In her own life she has found Mindfulness very helpful for dealing with anxiety and an active mind. In January 2016 Mairead resigned as a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (her former profession) and commenced teacher training with The Institute for Mindfulness-Based Approaches, where she qualified as an MBSR teacher in June 2017. There was a huge emphasis in the course on the teacher’s personal practice which Mairead finds challenging at times but essential for the teaching of Mindfulness. Mairead teaches mindfulness courses in Malahide and Portmarnock Community School’s Adult Education programme as well as facilitating mindfulness sessions for Highfield Healthcare Group. Mairead is married with 3 children aged from 29 to 24.
