StillMind

StillMind offers an effective way to reduce stress and anxiety, develop emotional awareness and deal with difficult thoughts and feelings.

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally. It is an excellent solution to the stresses of modern life. It invites us to stop, breathe, observe and connect with one’s inner experience.

StillMind is about:

  • Tuning into the present moment, maintaining awareness of your thoughts and feelings right now, rather than reliving the past or imagining the future
  • Accepting your thoughts and feelings without judging them- without believing that there’s a right or wrong way to think or feel in a given moment

StillMind assists you to:

  • Experience more calm and peacefulness
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Become less disturbed by and less reactive to stressful thoughts and feelings
  • Be less emotionally volatile
  • Facilitate better relationships
  • Catch self-defeating behaviours and substitute more effective ones

All Holyoake programs are based on a harm minimisation model.
