Mindfulness Courses by the Mindfulness Journey

A testimonial of a mindfulness course participant: “I would like to thank you for helping me with mindfulness. I am glad you are a part of my life and so very grateful for your teachings. My life is truly changed for the better and I know you are in my life for a reason and I am sure I know the reason. You are teaching me to value myself, love myself and be true to myself. I am feeling more confident each day. I know that my life will keep on getting better. Mindfulness is such a content way of being. No struggles, no demands, just being me. How I have longed to just be me. Thank you, Jamila, for helping me find myself. Gail – Richmond

A Day of Mindfulness Workshop – Coming soon!

Explore Mindfulness – A Day to De-stress, Recharge and Relax!

We spend a lot of time on the go totally consumed by the daily business of our lives. But how often during the day do we really spend time in the present moment? How often do we take time for ourselves and pause?

This one-day workshop offers a real opportunity to pause and to bring mindful attention to your life. The workshop will teach simple practices that anyone can do – so beginners are welcome.

Through mindfulness we can learn:

  • To be more in the present moment
  • To slow down when we feel that our body is rushing
  • To bring attention to, and be with, a bodily experience
  • To recognize the habits of our mind and body
  • To feel more balanced and calm

We will explore various kinds of mindfulness practices, including basic yoga, mindful walking, mindful sitting or lying meditation, mindful eating or just simple movements and stretches.

When we pause and allow ourselves to simply be, we can connect again with our body & mind and our true self can shine through. We can be here in our lives more fully.

Give yourself the “gift” of this one day of mindfulness!

When: ?

Investment: $69 (includes delicious vegetarian lunch and workshop notes).

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a way of being.  It is paying attention to the present moment in a particular way.  It is being aware and practicing attitudes like kindness, acceptance, and non-judgement.  It helps you become more aware of your thoughts and feelings and to deal with them in a positive way instead of feeling overwhelmed.  It is a skill that can be developed through practice. Mindfulness is a powerful way to bring balance into every aspect of your life.

“I really didn’t know much about mindfulness when I got invited to Jamila’s course by a friend.  I was pretty surprised at how simple the concept is, yet so difficult to practice in our everyday stressful and all-consuming lives.  Jamila’s course gave really great practical tools and knowledge to implement this important concept, in a safe and comfortable environment.  The course has greatly helped me to be more mindful in my daily life, but it is a continual work in progress so I appreciate Jamila’s continued support through email tips and web links as well as refresher courses! “ – Laura

“I started taking a keen interest in mindfulness after attending a two day course in Wellington.  I had started daily practice with audio files and subsequently attended a half day course run at work but still felt I would benefit from more classes.  I found Jamila had a perspective and way of explaining mindfulness that spoke to me and helped me see things I missed on my first two courses.  Also touching base one night a week for four weeks with “homework” really helped bed in my mindfulness practice, her audios were also excellent and I really appreciated the regular “reminders” she provided us with.  I would highly recommend attending Jamila’s mindfulness course.” – F.W. – Richmond

The mindfulness course I participated in with Jamila was fantastic! It has been very helpful in my day to day life and helping with my stress levels. The meditations and body scans that were provided and able to keep are great. Jamila is super helpful and still emails and txts every week at least to give more information and handy hints. Highly recommend the course with Jamila. – M – Richmond
