Tall Spaghetti specialises in mindfulness

I first began meditating in 2005 and have had a regular mindfulness practice ever since. Meditation is the training ground for being mindful. Mindfulness is ingrained in my being and is integral in how I approach my life and work. I have undertaken training to teach mindfulness via Bangor University. For me, cultivating mindfulness is a life-long commitment and adventure. And I am delighted to help others become more present and experience the discoveries and benefits that follow.

“Mindfulness is a subtle practice and can only be taught well by people with considerable personal experience.”The Mindful Nation report, Oct 15

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is about being present. Present for the moments, present for what is happening around us, present for ourselves, including how we feel and think. It’s about noticing, and not judging, what we find.

Being present reduces stress. It cuts through the mind’s tendencies to get caught up in the past, the future and in stressful thinking.

When we are more present we can appreciate and enjoy things more fully, which is great for well-being.

Mindfulness is about seeing more clearly. This supports self-awareness and insight. It helps us to respond wisely to the moments of our life. We can make fresh, healthy choices, as we are not so driven by automatic impulses, habits, or conditioning.

Mindfulness is ‘trained’ through mindfulness meditation. Over time, this gives access to the fuller potential of mindfulness.

The roots of mindfulness go back over 2,500 years.  It enjoys this longevity because it makes a really positive difference to living life well.

Please note
Mindfulness is ultimately a way of being in the world, not a discreet ‘tool’ or technique, separate to life. A great way to cultivate a ‘mindful way of being’ is through a regular meditation practice over time.

Why mindfulness?

  • well-being (including overall mood and outlook)
