Breathing in I notice I am breathing in.
Breathing out I notice I am breathing out.

The Barn offers you an opportunity to practise mindfulness – to integrate ancient wisdom into your busy life and learn practical tools and methods to stay positive and to make the most of your year ahead…

Life can move at a relentless and demanding pace.  So often we find ourselves on auto-pilot, doing one thing with our body while our mind is caught up in something completely different.  Mindfulness offers the invitation to come into the freshness of the present moment: to know what is happening while it’s happening. 

The scientific evidence and clinical research that underpins mindfulness is strong and growing.  It shows positive effects on several aspects of whole person health, including mind, brain, body and behaviour, as well as our relationships with others.  

During the afternoon’s guided meditations and mindful body scans, you will have an opportunity to settle your mind, deeply relax and pay attention to the present moment - as well as to connect with nature and the world around you.  It is a chance to take a few hours to be mindfully present with thoughts, emotions and physical sensations in the body, supported by an atttitude of kindness and compassion. 

Being present with everything, allowing what ever happens to come and go, leads to a place of stillness. A place where we can wisely meet the entirety of who we are with kindness and compassion. 

Mindfulness may not change our situation but it can help how we are with it. We can stand back from emotional conflict. We can become kinder, more compassionate and wise. 

Rosalyn Chissick (MNFSH, Mindfulness Association) has been practising healing for 14 years, and at the Barn for 9 years. She works as a healer and group facilitator at Penny Brohn UK, a charity that provides integrative care to people affected by cancer, where she also runs a weekly mindfulness group. Rosalyn brings to her work a passionate commitment to every individual’s right to flourish.
