Govani Coaching Mindfulness

Mindfulness is choosing to pay attention to the present moment with an attitude of openness, curiosity and non-judgment.  This means purposefully bringing awareness moment-by-moment to what is unfolding in our lives right now.

This may seem like an odd thing to do, but through my own daily practice, I have found that mindfulness helps me to focus, handle stressful events in a more constructive way and enjoy pleasant moments that could otherwise flit by unnoticed. 

Try this 5 minute meditation whenever you need to pause and reset.

I offer mindfulness classes both to the general public and to organisations (generally in London and Croydon) as well as running classes online.  I also develop and facilitate bespoke mindful leadership training programmes to suit the individual requirements of organisations.

There are many great sites out there that explain mindfulness in depth. I recommend Mindfulnet as a starting point.  I am currently studying at Bangor University for a Master’s degree in Mindfulness-Based Approaches and I attend at least one silent mindfulness retreat each year to deepen my own practice. I follow the UK Network of Mindfulness Teachers’ Good Practice Guidelines.

Here are my blog posts on mindfulness:

 

“Farah has a radical calmness. The mindfulness course has been the best commitment I have ever made and what started as a little curiosity has changed into something I can see myself being engaged with for a long time to come. I would highly recommend this to ANYONE wanting to gain a new sense of being."
