Mindfulness Classes

 

 

My approach to teaching mindfulness is underpinned by a committed personal practice of mindfulness and meditation. I have a scientific background in Cognitive Psychology, Education and Neuropsychology, with a particular interest in brain development and function. I also have practical experience in primary education.

 

Since 2003 I have explored mindfulness in its secular and Buddhist contexts and delight in the heart-opening qualities of awareness and positive emotion the practice brings.

 

 

 

 

Mindfulness, as a part of my Buddhist meditation practice, has been the source of much creativity and joy throughout my adult life. I completed ordination training in Buddhist philosophy and practice in 1999 and since then have regularly lead meditation courses and retreats within a Buddhist context.

 

I have a background in education and have 17 years' experience working in secondary schools and with Special Needs students. The opportunity to introduce mindfulness to the schools I taught in enabled me to see the benefits of this practice directly in the classroom.

 

I have managed and led many meditation retreats and also worked as an events organiser for the UK registered charity Buddhafield.

Mindfulness and Compassion: Graduate Course

Annie Atasati McAuley

Mindfulness is now recognised by doctors and psychologists as a powerful tool for enhancing wellbeing and reducing everyday life stress, as well as anxiety and depression.  It can also can help us to appreciate life more, improve our  relationships and be more effective with tasks and activities.

 

What is Mindfulness and how can it help?

 

Mindfulness involves a particular way of giving our attention to our present-moment experience, which anyone can practice.  Mindfulness can help reduce worrying and fretting, or churning over’ problems in a way that makes us mentally go round in circles, or get upset time and again by the same triggers . It can also greatly increase our enjoyment of life and our appreciation of the things that really matter most to us.

At the Tree of Life Centre, we run the internationally recognised 'gold standard' 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course. MBSR was originally developed by John Kabat-Zinn to help people manage the stress of extreme health conditions, but it’s now used very widely to help anyone reduce everyday life stress and anxiety and live life more fully.  The course is taught by Dr Carolyn Drake and Annie McAuley.
