Mindfulness in Practice Masterclass

Mindfulness Information from NHS Choices

Mark Williams, professor of clinical psychology at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre and Welcome principal research fellow at the University of Oxford, says: “Mindfulness means non-judgemental awareness. A direct knowing of what is going on inside and outside ourselves, moment by moment”.

Professor Williams says that mindfulness can be an antidote to the “tunnel vision” that can develop in our daily lives, especially when we are busy, stressed or tired.

“It’s easy to stop noticing the world around us. It’s also easy to lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling, and to end up living ‘in our heads’ – caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour.

“An important part of mindfulness is reconnecting with our bodies and the sensations they experience. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment. That might be something as simple as the feel of a banister as we walk upstairs.”

“Another important part of mindfulness is an awareness of our thoughts and feelings as they happen moment to moment.”

“Awareness of this kind doesn’t start by trying to change or fix anything. It’s about allowing ourselves to see the present moment clearly. When we do that, it can positively change the way we see ourselves and our lives.”

How mindfulness can help?

Becoming more aware of the present moment can help us enjoy the world around us more, and understand ourselves better.

“When we become more aware of the present moment, we begin to experience afresh many things in the world around us that we have been taking for granted,” says Professor Williams.

“Mindfulness also allows us to become more aware of the stream of thoughts and feelings that we experience, and to see how we can become entangled in that stream in ways that are not helpful.

“This lets us stand back from our thoughts, and start to see their patterns. Gradually we can train ourselves to notice when our thoughts are taking over, and realise that thoughts are simply ‘mental events’ that do not have to control us.

How you can practise mindfulness

Reminding yourself to take notice – of your thoughts, feelings and body sensations, and the world around you – is the first step to mindfulness.

“Even as we go about our daily lives, we can find new ways of waking up to the world around us. We can notice the sensations of things, the food we eat, the air moving past the body as we walk. All this may sound very small, but it has huge power to interrupt the ‘autopilot’ mode we often engage day to day, and to give us new perspectives on life.”

It can be helpful to pick a time – the morning journey to work or a walk at lunchtime – during which you decide to be aware of the sensations created by the world around you. Trying new things – sitting in a different seat in meetings, going somewhere new for lunch – can also help you notice the world in a new way.

“Similarly, notice the busyness of your mind. Just observe your own thoughts. Stand back and watch them floating past, like leaves on a stream. There is no need to try to change the thoughts, or argue with them, or judge them: just observe. This takes practice. It’s about putting the mind in a different mode, in which we see each thought as simply another mental event, and not an objective reality that has control over us.”

What is the Mindfulness in Practice Masterclass?

This Masterclass has been structured to allow you as a coach or therapist to incorporate Mindfulness into your practice.  I have been trained as a Mindfulness & Meditation Trainer in addition to my other disciplines.   As with any of our trainings it is good to incorporate these practices into your every day life, which will reduce stress and allow you to be present.
