Mindfulness Based Living Courses (MLBC)
Everyone can ‘do’ mindfulness! Once we’ve grasped a basic understanding of what mindfulness is, and learned a few simple skills and techniques, we can begin to experience its many benefits.
And as our awareness develops, we begin to see that we have more choice available to us that we perhaps previously thought. Mindfulness teaches us to become less reactive and less demanding of ourselves. Sound familiar? In becoming more open, curious and kind, towards what unfolds in our lives, thinking of it less as a relentless struggle, and instead, more of a series of unique processes, then we can learn to accept what comes up in our experience, while taking responsibility for making positive change. If we can do this, we are well on the way to living more mindful and more contented lives.
Specialist LGBT Plus support
This Kind Space is committed to an ongoing and developing equality and diversity policy in relation to all those who register for our Mindfulness Courses or Sessions.
I offer a safe, welcoming, confidential environment for the LGBTQI Plus community, where you can mindfully explore how you are meet and deal with some of challenges that you may encounter.
We all share basic survival needs, hopes and fears, along with a desire for happiness, joy and contentment in life. And why not?
Unfortunately there are still many in our culture who, for myriad reasons, remain plagued by fear and suspicion of those whom they choose to perceive or mistreat as ‘other’, actively or even passively expressing anger or aggression towards people who don’t appear to fit their own social ‘norm’. While this may reveal their own insecurities and lack of awareness, unfortunately perhaps you, may have been on the receiving end of such behaviour? Maybe you’re suffering from related anxiety, fear, crippling self-esteem and related issues, making it very difficult, if not impossible to function healthily and reasonably happily in some sort of ordinary day-to-day life?
Partners, Parents and Siblings (LGBTQ or otherwise)
Husbands, wives, partners, parents, siblings and significant others in the lives of all the above.
Drawing on my personal and professional experience I am acutely aware that when a person decides to come out and/or transition, it is not only that person themselves, who experiences massive change in their lives. Those immediately close to the person, can also be affected by change. To date, their needs are often sidelined and in many cases underestimated. Mindful awareness coupled with self-care and self-compassion is key to a person’s well-being if they are to come to terms with what can be a deeply confusing and de-stablising experience for all involved, especially because no-one is to blame.
As your awareness develops, we may also find that your relationships with others – no matter who they are, can be greatly enhanced.
