Mind Intelligence™

Why is Mindfulness so popular NOW ?     


Neuroscience research has long proven having a regular Mindfulness & emotional Intelligence practice can help improve our wellbeing in so many ways     

It compliments our mental and physical performance while improving how we interact in our relationships, careers, with ourselves, and so many other areas. Our neural pathways change with repetition as we form new habits.

If we could consider that some habitual thought patterns could be not very beneficial for us,  then why not the opposite ? Learn to understand your mind and thought processes a little better and help make ourselves feel calmer and happier more often

So, adopting Mindful living practices can help us improve our relationship with stress and anxiety, reduce our reactions which can make life simpler and flow …. interested ?…


Why” Build these Skills ?

Happier & calmer, more often – better able to flow & adapt with life

With practice, Mindful living provides us with better “personal leadership”, awareness and understanding of our innate Mind Intelligence™. It can help us become more focused, calmer and clearer more often.

Learn and GROW !

It can help us be better prepared to manage stress, over reaction, anxiety and those feelings of an out of control or “monkey mind” – which is a common challenge for many people. There is a way, when you decide its time for to change habitual behaviours that don’t help.

respond, NOT react ?

  •  Understand self-awareness and self-acceptance
  •  Learn the power of thoughts, emotions and the mind (self-management)
  •  Grow to see things differently – (being who you want to be)

Feedback from many course participants includes – changed their life, sleeping better now, less stressed, able to focus better, more discerning of thoughts, notice more, improved awareness, changed my life, learnt to respond rather than react, happier, calmer …

With the right intention and practice, you can learn to experience more calmness, happiness and resilience – more often !

If not now… when ?

“A big thank you to Neil for the great “Mindfulness Experience” session you ran for us at the beginning of our school term. What a great way to put the last few months into perspective and begin the new term on a positive note.

Everyone (even the sceptics amongst us) thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the session and many of us have put into practice the skills learned.

We would definitely recommend the experience to others.”

 Grief does many terrible things to you. The loss of your spouse is not just sad, it’s also quite terrifying, because you’ve lost half of you.

My experience was a whole gamut of reactions: overwhelming heartbreak, role stress and strain from now having to raise our 2 young children (who were also grieving) alone, feelings of extreme isolation, the loss of confidence in my gut instincts, fear & anxiety & a sense of inadequacy about our livelihood & finances, and many others.

I also fell into very poor sleeping habits – I was exhausted when I hopped into bed, but then my brain would kick in – such a busy brain, going over everything of that day or the week or even month before, and also anticipating what was to come tomorrow, next week, or next month. And everything became so magnified.

I tried all the usual things – alcohol, sleeping tablets, herbal supplements, turning devices off early so my mind could start to unwind, exercise – pretty much everything. But none had any lasting effect, none allowed me to stay asleep for more than a few hours, after which I’d waken & my mind would take over again. I’d have a racing, pounding heart in the middle of the night, and it was very scary, many nights.

I’d been trying to get to a Mindfulness course for a couple of years, but as they were all in the evenings, I had to wait until I was confident the kids (now teenagers) would be okay if I left them for a couple of hours.

The first night of the course, I felt calmer after the guided meditation, & came home feeling ‘lighter’. I did the body scan as I lay in bed, & then, I slept. I actually slept through – for the first time in months. Yes, I’d still taken my herbal stuff, & had had a glass of wine (as usual), but I slept so well, and felt truly refreshed in the morning. So, the next night, I skipped the herbal stuff & wine, & did the body scan in bed. But I fell asleep before I completed it. And again, I slept through.

I was doing the exercises during the day, and each evening, I’d feel calmer. And I fell asleep each night before I completed my body scan.

The classes each week helped me develop strategies to overcome my blocks to mindfulness, and hearing the other participants’ experiences helped too. Everyone has different issues, so hearing how they overcome them is helpful, for your own future reference. And it’s good to be a part of a group that works together for each other.

I no longer have a busy brain keeping me awake, I’m more relaxed and focused during the day, life doesn’t feel so overwhelming to me, and I just feel like I’m in a much better place now because of the Mindfulness Course. It’s given me the space to address other aspects of my health & fitness that had been ignored for the 3 years since my husband had died, & I am now much healthier physically as well as emotionally. And my kids have benefited too – they can see how much better I am, and so they now feel more confident too.

The Mindfulness Course has been life-changing for me. Vivienne
