Ever wonder where our good and enjoyable times go as we rush through life? Do you find that you are spending a great deal of your time thinking about the future or the past, while the present slips by? Is your mind racing, thinking ahead, worrying, judging, and you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed? Do you often put yourself on automatic pilot?

 Mindfulness is a strategy to keep your attention in the present moment and learn techniques to increase your enjoyment of life.

The charge for each session is between €5 – €10, depending on what you’re comfortable with. The charge will cover the cost of the hall and materials.

If you would like a place on the course please text your name and how many people to Simon Wale on 086 6067758.
