Description

Mindful awareness is about learning to pay attention in a particular way - on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgment. We think we are doing this already, but that is an illusion. We are simply not paying enough attention to notice that we are not paying attention.

Mindfulness is like training a muscle – training attention to be where you want it to be. This reduces our tendency to work on autopilot, allowing us to choose how we respond & react.

Recent studies show that mindfulness meditation is linked to changes in the brain resulting in more positive emotions, emotional stability, and more mindful behaviour.

Using fMRI scans, scientists have been able to see what happens and compare the brains of practitioners with the brains of non-practitioners. Much of the research is showing that mindfulness meditation causes the brain to undergo physical changes, many of which are beneficial.

In this webinar Maya Nova will talk about how these brain changes correspond to simple mindfulness practices you can begin to practice immediately to develop a more resilient brain which will result in you feeling much more in control of your emotions, inner clarity and peace.

  •  Anyone who wants to improve their ability to stay calm and focused under pressure. 
  •  Anyone who would like to learn more about how mindfulness could help them regain balance in their life.
