What past clients have said:
“My favourite takeaway from the session was ‘doing vs being’ ‘Do-ing referring to doing activities in auto-pilot mode. ‘Be-ing’ referring to being present when we do these activities. Today I choose the latter and now on my journey to being in the present! Thank you Melbourne Coach for a great workshop!”
"This morning we went to a mindfulness session in this beautiful space. I actually feel surprisingly content and at peace.. Perfect way to spend a Saturday morning!"
"Thank you for today. It was powerful and insightful for me. I feel uncomfortable showing my emotions, hence the reason why I tried to put a lid on it quickly, but the emotion was overwhelming me on this occasion. The subject matter was quite pertinent to me and I felt a wave of tingles all over my body, I knew at that moment I had just felt something very profound and it was liberating. I felt emotional because of how wound up I am, and the thought of lifting this weight, even for a brief moment was wonderful. Driving home I feel even more resolute to learn to accept, be in the moment and put an end to the things that hold me to ransom. You’ve been great Marion, transforming my life is no easy task, but I feel I’m on the right path."
Huffington Post on the Science of How Mindfulness Works
In these brain regions, the simple act of practicing mindfulness increased both brain activity and the density of brain tissue:
- The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), which is responsible for self-control. It enables you to resist distractions, to focus, and to avoid impulsivity in order to work efficiently and make great decisions. The ACC is also responsible for flexibility, and people who have problems in this brain area are known to stick to ineffective problem-solving strategies when they should be adjusting their approach.
- The hippocampus, which, among other things, is responsible for resilience in the face of setbacks and challenges. The hippocampus is readily damaged by stress, making it a need area for most people. The hippocampus is red/orange in the image below.
