About the Home Practice

  • Mindfulness is more a way of being than a technique and it is the regular daily practice (30-40 minutes) that increases the likelihood of being able to use mindfulness when times are particularly tough.
  • By committing to the daily practice, at least for the duration of the course, you give yourself the best opportunity to experience a difference in how you relate to what is happening in your life. You may be surprised!
