WELCOME TO LEVERET MINDFULNESS
Mindfulness for the South West
We run introductory sessions, drop-in sessions and 8 week Courses in work places in Bristol and the South West. With over 20 years’ experience we combine the knowledge we have gained from our many teachers and pupils to create compassionate, creative and supportive mindfulness courses.
WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Originally created as an integration of Buddhist mindfulness meditation practice and contemporary psychology, mindfulness is a secular intervention found to enhance wellbeing. Mindfulness can be
described as “awareness of present experience with acceptance”.
Since the creation of Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) in 1979 mindfulness has become wide spread.
Many studies have looked at the effect of mindfulness, finding that it decreases the level of stress and anxiety. Mindfulness is reported to not only have a role in decreasing stress levels but of increasing empathy levels.
The real meditation is how you live your life.
It’s nice to just remember that there is beauty in everything . It’s nice, it sounds cheesy, but there are things that I see that normal people don’t, people that don’t practice mindfulness.
Past course participant
I’ve really enjoyed it as well because it’s really opened my mind to how you can just be mindful every day, you don’t have to do a thing or take time out you can just like do it. You can just do it throughout the day, really it doesn’t take time out of your life, you could be just walking to uni and like that could be your mindful moment you don’t have to do it any other time.
