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!Emily Highfield


Thanks so much for an inspiring, mindful, meditative & informative morning at the Mindful over Matter workshop this morning Marion!! Such a professional and obviously experienced presenter – a fantastic way to start the long weekend. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for future events!Ashlee Chatfield

Director, Well Life Project

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!

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
