Our lives are embedded webs of social relationships and communication and we all know the challenges and stress that is very much a part of being a relational being. The IM course allows participants to have the experience of stepping out of autopilot and into mindful awareness whilst face to face with another person. The course is based on the relational mindfulness practice of Insight Dialogue and has been designed specifically for those who have either completed an MBSR course or who have a regular meditation practice. This course is also a powerful vehicle to develop a fundamental understanding of what it is to be truly human. Hieronder staat de tweede uitgebreide reeks met mindfulness quotes die allemaal betrekking hebben op mindfulness leven en handelen. Jezelf kennen betekent geworteld te zijn in Zijn, in plaats van verdwaald te zijn in je verstand.
Je bent het resultaat van alle vroegere afbeeldingen die je voor jezelf geschilderd hebt… en je kunt altijd nieuwe schilderen.
Drie factoren die een sterke belemmering vormen voor je welzijn zijn negativisme, oordeelsvorming en onevenwichtigheid. Het gaat er niet om dat je vrij bent VAN de ervaringen die je hebt, maar dat je je vrijheid ontdekt IN de ervaringen die je hebt. Je kunt eeuwig blijven klagen over hoe slecht je geweest bent en tot je dood je schuldig te voelen, maar helemaal niets van dat schuldgevoel zal ertoe bijdragen dat vroegere gedrag te corrigeren. Richt je niet langer op wat je niet bent en wat je niet hebt, maar probeer te waarderen wat je wel bent en wat je wel hebt. Ongelukkig zijn komt uiteindelijk niet voort uit levenssituaties maar uit de conditionering van je denken. Wie boven discriminatie en de hokjesgeest uitstijgt, zal de verbondenheid van alle dingen ervaren. Wanneer je de manier verandert waarop je naar dingen kijkt, veranderen de dingen waarnaar je kijkt. Ik laat mijn verwachtingen los over wat er zou moeten zijn, en open mij in plaats daarvoor voor wat er wel is. Een essentieel onderdeel van zuiver zien, is de bereidheid verder te kijken dan je eigen ideeen. It’s crazy just how much our thoughts run our lives  or can run our lives (if we allow them to!!) No more!!
Thinking, thinking, thinking, then worrying, stressing, being completely ahead of myself and worrying about something that hasn’t even happened and actually most likely won’t even happen? Until I discovered mindfulness and really understood the statement ‘a thought is just a thought’. When we start to pay attention to our thoughts and recognise them as only thoughts with a little curiosity, we then start think about thinking and nderstanding that it’s just a thought, not a belief, not fact. Start by bringing your attention to your breath and allowing yourself to notice any thoughts that come into your head. For example, don’t beat yourself up for having the thought, there’s no wrong or right here!!

I’ve found it difficult for a little while to really practice mindfulness in my nightly meditation.
I almost use that time as my thinking time, I come up with ideas, remember things I need to do, worry about things I haven’t done, get excited about things and many more thoughts run through my mind, I wonder, why couldn’t I think of this before I put my head to rest?
For quite a while I was in a really good routine, doing my regular 2 yoga classes a week and found myself getting better at it.
When you bring your awareness to breath, you bring yourself to to this moment, to this breath, not last years breath, not tomorrows breath, but now. One of my January goals was to get back into my yoga routine as I knew it would only benefit me with not only mindfulness, but my exercise, my work, my relationships, how I handle stress, everything! Practicing yoga not only helps heals this scars, release the tension and let it go, it helps to protect your body emotionally, physically and mentally.
Yes of course those thoughts still whiz through my head as it hits the pillow, but I bring my attention back to the breath.
Throughout my life I constantly was worried about something that could happen, may happen, should happen but actually – didn’t happen! I won’t go into too much of my darker days under this heading however throughout my ‘blogging’ and ‘updates’ I will be touching over experiences and times where I can now look back and think it’s made me who I am today.
One of the and if not the most effective practices I found to overcome the ‘Stress, Anxiety, Depression’ Cycle (next to eating well and exercising) was ‘Mindfulness’. Mindfulness is a skill that can be learned like any other and is one of the oldest and most basic skills known to mankind. It could be as informal as making a cup of tea, brushing your teeth, driving in traffic with ‘AWARENESS’. We are always paying attention to something, but often not what we choose, our thoughts, our mind jumps from one thing to another without us even realising. Non-judgmentally being kind to ourselves as we bring our minds bcd to the focus, over and over. When we are with another we can so easily get triggered into mental and emotional habits of relational reactivity, lose touch with the present moment and move into unconscious and perhaps less effective ways of connecting. Right here, moment by moment, we have the opportunity to notice our mental and emotional relational habits, habits that are usually invisible in the flow of communication and, because we see these patterns with clarity, we can choose to respond differently. This course is open to all who have either previously completed an MBSR course or who have a regular practice. It wasn’t until I read this statement where I was able to understand just how powerful our thoughts are and more importantly how insignificant they are; that they shouldn’t control actions. Notice the thought, pay attention to it for a moment, acknowledge and accept the thought in a non-judgemental way.
Also, don’t read into the thought or why you are having it, just accept it as a thought – let me elaborate: Accept a thought as exactly what it is, just a thought.
Practice thinking about these thoughts, even if you think ‘I can’t do this’ well that’s a thought in itself.
The teacher that instructed the yoga classes I was attending, very much was about the breath and I found it so easy to be in the present moment in her classes, on the mat, not thinking, just being.

It might not be a bruise, a scratch or a scar but believe me, our body holds onto all of it, not allowing us to truly let go!
I often found myself flustered and getting so worked up about something that hadn’t even occurred and may not even!! Wise mind adds intuitive knowing (awareness) and logical analysis to emotional experiencing.
In its essence, it’s as simple as rediscovering the taste of fresh water or the blue colour of the sky. I know when I can really get going I could have more then one ‘cycle’ going on in my head at once. We don’t judge our experience as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we are learning and accept the experience just as it is. Having a personal mindfulness practice does develop some measure of relational awareness and can help to bring calm presence into the relationship, however when mindfulness is cultivated specifically within a relational practice context, these skills are honed and strengthened. The form of this relational practice is primarily dyadic, with participants seated face-to-face and contemplations highlighting significant elements of our shared human experience are offered as a vehicle for relational engagement and dialogue. The breath is closely connected to the body, and also the mind; it is a link between the two. When you tune in to your breathing, your body and mind are in sync – you are present. The teacher that then started to instruct classes was more into the spirituality side of things. I decided to not let the differences we may get out of yoga affect me by not even going to yoga, but to try and learn from her and take out what I needed.
One of the first classes we were humming, panting, in prayer position a lot and the whole thing kind of, well I found it annoying and distracting, I allowed myself to feel this way and not enjoy my yoga practice.
Some people imagine them as ‘leaves’ floating away gently in the wind, me, I envision clouds that shoot off from my head, whatever works for you. I’ve been sleeping a bit better and am able to get into the present moment when practicing my nightly meditations.
There’s no wrong or right, just see the thoughts floating away, getting smaller and smaller until they are non-existent. Sometimes you’ll feel like you’re making a lot of progress; other times you’ll be discouraged. But, it is certain that if you practice, practice, practice, your skills at mindfulness will improve!
