What is mindfulness according to Mindful Magazine? Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
The benefits of Mindfulness outlined in the American Psychology Association include stress reduction, boosts to working memory, reduced rumination, improved focus, less emotional reactivity, cognitive flexibility, relationship satisfaction, enhance insight and increased immune function.
Mindfulness meditation practise can lead to significant changes in the brain. Improving connectivity to the self regulating region and decreasing the size of the primal region of the brain.
Our evidence based program is offered as a secular framework but we acknowledge the teachings draw from the ancient, Eastern wisdom traditions of Buddhism.
The location for the course is an established modern studio in the heart of Camberwell at the Junction. We have seating, yoga mats and refreshments and friendly, warm staff. Access to the practice via tram or car with lots of parking.
Prior to the commencement of the course you will be sent a confidential intake questionnaire and need to email it back before the start date. You're welcome to call and speak to the teacher Marion with any questions.

The greatest insight from doing the 6 week mindfulness course was how my concentration on activities began to improve and my overall attention. I was also able to sleep better and be more mindful when undertaking tasks. ~Physiotherapist
The 6 week mindfulness course informed me of the importance of meditation for mental health. I found my skills set was improved and it improved my self-awareness and the development of greater calmness. ~
I have tried meditation in the past- many years ago. I remembering finding it difficult then, to silence my mind and focus “on the candle”. When I discovered Marion’s website I knew this was going to be a different approach to traditional meditation and that the scientific approach appealed to me.
I consider myself somewhat spiritual but I am still governed by my analytical side” the need to understand the process and the outcome- ultimately my need to control my environment”
From my 6 weeks with the class- I pushed aside the need to control and the frustration to perfect the process..and allowed myself to settle into the moment, no judgement, no criticism and no assessment” these are the key pillars to being present.
Once I adopted the process of Mindfulness, I become more aware of myself and the triggers to stress, empowering me at work and with managing situations- ultimately gaining more control”
I am committed to incorporating mindfulness into my routine and strongly recommend Marion’s 6 week session to all those that lead corporate and busy lifestyles. ~ Media Director , My Media Garden
One thing I can see happening is change, and that’s because I’m taking accountability. I’m loving this. It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s meaningful. Really glad I started this process. Looking forward to a really positive week.~Manager
