Welcome to Everyday Mindfulness Scotland

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to whatever is happening inside and out, in the present moment. Its a natural part of being human and has been cultivated and practiced for thousands of years all over the world. It's a secular practice where we teach ourselves to pay close attention to what is going on in the present moment. Cultivating this level of self awareness has many benefits enabling us to enjoy life more and gain the ability to handle difficult emotions and in doing so become more resilient and promote our wellbeing. 

Who is Everyday Mindfulness Scotland  

We are an association of mindfulness teachers with a vision of increasing the number of people experiencing the benefits of a regular mindfulness practice. We are a member of the UK Network of Mindfulness Teacher Training Organisations, and our social enterprise is recognised as offering the highest standards in our teaching and training. 

Our values underpin our work and guide our relationships with those we work with:

We promote inclusion, equality and involvement.  We aim to make our training and support accessible to all, and to listen to and learn from those who choose to study with us.  Most of our advisory group are our former students. We work in secular settings and our courses can be accessed by people of all faiths and none.

Our approach is empowering, strengths based and hopeful.  We believe everyone has the innate quality of mindfulness and that everyone has the capacity to live well and hopefully, regardless of circumstances.

Our work is compassion focussed. We are open and sensitive to the difficulties that we can all experience as humans, and are strongly motivated to relieve and prevent suffering.
