An introduction to Mindfulness
WEDNESDAY 21ST FEBRUARY 2024, 7-9 PM
Speaker: Philippe Mathon, MBRA
After years in the corporate world, Philippe Mathon decided to qualify with the British Reflexology Association in 2000 and in acupuncture in 2002 (MBAcC). His practice is in Fulham. He is also a qualified hypnotherapist (MNCH (Reg.)) and a yoga teacher.
Philippe has been involved with the BRA board on and off since about 2005: he was treasurer and Lecture Day Co-Ordinator for about 6 years. He came back on the board in 2019 and is currently the Association’s treasurer and office administrator.
Mindfulness is the practice of intentionally focusing one's attention on the present moment without judgment. It involves being fully aware of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the surrounding environment. Mindfulness helps you to observe your experiences without getting caught up in them, allowing for greater clarity and understanding. By cultivating mindfulness, you can develop a deeper sense of self-awareness and enhance your overall well-being.
In this lecture, Philippe will cover the basics of Mindfulness, highlight its potential benefits and give a basic guided mindfulness meditation of about 20 minutes at the end.
