Welcome to this site dedicated to communicating ideas, providing support, and notifying readers of workshops, retreats, and resources; related to mindfulness practice and psychological strategies.

A general principle for practicing mindfulness
can involve 3-steps all beginning with A:

  • Awareness of self and surroundings
  • Acceptance of being in the here and now
  • Alertness to the moment

You can begin to practice mindfulness by applying
these steps to a new activity that you have engaged in.

Outback Retreat, QLD 2022

What would you like to do today?

Mindfulness has its roots in Eastern Philosophies. It is a state of mind focussed on the present rather than being focussed on the past or the future. To be mindful involves noticing … noticing what thoughts and feelings come up whilst delaying judgments about them… being firstly aware of what is happening within you and around you. 

In this modern world of screen technology, many of us have lost touch with our inner being and our environment. Whilst accepting that we live in this age, we still need to be alert to our breathing, our movements, our decisions, our immediate pathway… 

“Mindfulness in Practice” is a designed to provide… professionals, helpers, carers, workers and anyone out there willing to give it a go; with experiences, individually and in groups, to practice a more mindful day to day lifestyle. Join me sometime on this journey…

“Whatever the present moment contains,
accept it as if you have chosen it.”

– Eckhart Tolle,  A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose
