WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness is an evidence-based intervention that empowers individuals to manage stress-related issues. It is a highly effective practice that helps individuals deal with difficult emotions and states of mind, that are all too common in the modern world, such as depression, trauma, obesity, addictions, anxiety, fear, chronic pain and diseases, sleep disorders, anger management, postpartum depression, reactivity, grief and burnout.
Mindfulness was introduced to the western world by Jon Kabat-Zinn, who founded the 8-week programme called Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction in the Stress Clinic of the University of Massachusetts Medical School in the late 70’s. Mindfulness practice proved to cultivate resilience, nurture mental and physical wellbeing as well as empower individuals to skilfully manage situations that appeared overwhelming and challenging, without the need of therapy and medication. Mindfulness practice includes exercises that are easy to comprehend and implement, making it a widely used intervention in hospitals, schools, clinics, institutions and corporations.
Mindfulness Hub offers various mindfulness programmes empowering you to skillfully manage all stress-related issues, feel more calm, cultivate more resilience and well-being in all areas of your life.
Our consultation and training sessions are currently held online and, when possible, face to face in London, UK and internationally.
