WHAT IS THIS EVENT?

Mindfulness is the practice of intentionally, yet gently, paying attention to the present moment without judgement. It can help to tackle unhelpful mental patterns that can later lead to more severe physiological as well as physical health issues. Mindfulness is most commonly known for contributing to increased appreciation of the present moment. It can also assist in the management of physical chronic pain and emotional suffering (e.g. recurring anger, sadness, overwhelm/stress, loneliness). Participants will be introduced to the science behind why meditation and mindfulness practices DO work, as well as being provided an opportunity to explore these techniques both in class and at home. The intention of these practices will be to respond in a different manner to our many recurring thought patterns that lead us to unwelcome thoughts, mental or physical pain, or unmanageable environmental circumstances.

 
Those who complete this course in its entirety will be officially certified as a Mindfulness Practitioner.
 

WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

This course is for anyone who is interested in deepening self-awareness, gaining a better understanding of the effects of stress on the mind and the body, calming the chattering mind, responding in a different way to stress, and switching off the doing mode and simply BEING.
 
All are welcome to attend any single class of the course for a drop in fee of €10. This will not include a certification for the course or any of the textbooks/resources provided.

ABOUT MONICA:

Hey there! I’m Monica! I am a Mindfulness practitioner and a Trainer of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Adults. MBCT is a discipline which cultivates self-awareness, focus, and presence of being. I am also a lecturer with a Masters degree in Italian as a Foreign Language at Sir M. A. Refalo Sixth Form in Gozo. I am the first person to have introduced Mindfulness Training into education in Gozo. I firmly believe that Mindfulness should be accessible to all, as I find it to be one of many necessary self-awareness and coping tools. I have trained under the UK-based EFT & Mindfulness Centre and I renew my Mindfulness practitioner and trainer status annually. I do this because I believe that Mindfulness is a lifelong personal discipline; a lifestyle. I offer private Mindfulness courses outside of what I offer at school under my own logo A(t)tune To Life – MBD. I created A(t)tune To Life as my own personal contribution to the world after receiving so much from others. My Australian-born but Gozitan-raised heritage makes me want to gain a deeper introspection into the different psychological and spiritual dimensions of the self and others. My aim is to be a more self-aware human being, daughter, sister, wife, teacher, friend, and a free-er soul. I am a steadfast introvert and like the simple life of reading, gardening, nature walking, meditating, yoga-ing. I prefer simplicity, a smile, a cuddle, a helpful comment rather than ambition, keeping up appearances or social networking. I love both the sun and the moon as reminders of keeping a balance in all aspects of life.
