Mindful ME bases all of our workshops, experiences and sessions on a practice of mindful awareness. As leaders of teaching this approach to conscious living and mindful lifestyle in the region, Mindful ME run multiple Mindfulness Practice workshops that introduce new practitioners. We also seek to reinspire and support those who would like to delve deeper into the practices in our Mindfulness Maintenance and Continuity of Practice workshop as well as in our Mindful Living short workshops.
Our workshops are rooted in the practical experience and application of mindfulness and give participants the tools to cultivate the skills that reduce anxiety, stress, pressure and help us increase our ability to focus, manage life’s challenges and take pleasure in the joy of living.
“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now, without wishing it were different.” – James Baraz
There is compelling and ever-growing evidence that shows the benefits of mindfulness on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Instead of feeling overwhelmed with the daily stress, panic, depression, pressure and anxiety that impacts many of our lives, make a choice of self-compassion and take time to enjoy one of our workshops.
How to Learn Mindfulness
We encourage our first time participants to join our month long Mindfulness Practice (part 1) workshops or our Workplace Mindfulness experiences or become part of a Mindful Living community that support each other in applying these learnings in practical ways in everyday life. We also run a 4 week Practicing Presence (part 2) course which serves well as a follow up to the first 4 weeks. For those interested in Mindfulness specifically from a parenting perspective we also offer two Mindfulness programmes, Mindfulness for Parents (part 1), and Parenting with Presence (part 2) alongside our age specific workshops. Keep reading below for more details.
You can learn more about mindfulness in one on one private sessions. Each session is 75min long and will be tailored to your needs and questions. You can have as many sessions as you like although we recommend at least 4 sessions over the course of 4 weeks to get started. Private sessions are also a wonderful way of extending and deepening your mindfulness practice once you have completed our open workshops. A great benefit of doing the private sessions is that you will be able to book in at a time that works best for you! Each individual session costs AED700 (AED2800 for 4 week programme). Contact us here to begin.
Mindfulness Practice (part 1)
Our open Mindfulness Practice Workshops are held on Monday nights from 7 – 9pm. We will be meeting together in Barsha Heights.
The Mindfulness Practice course is designed as a personal journey of self-discovery and awareness as well as a practical learning of what mindfulness is and how to build a sustained personal practice.
Investment: AED1300 per person for the full 4 weeks (this includes unlimited refresher attendance. This means that you will always be able to be part of future sessions at no extra cost.)
