what will mindfulness do for me?

Perhaps you’re looking for energy and patience but the well is running dry.

Maybe you’ve heard a lot about mindfulness, you know it can help you have a deeper well of patience and happiness but there’s so much information out there it’s overwhelming and so you do nothing.

Well I hear you and I totally agree. So I have taken my 15 years of teaching and created this course based on everything I’ve been taught, read and experienced to create this 8 week course that will help you in every part of your life. It’s my; “Everything I’ve ever learnt about mindfulness that WORKS” course!  

So this is for you if you want to make some positive changes in your life, learn how how to deal with challenges, stress & anxiety, cultivate compassion, resilience and presence so that you can delve into joy, happiness and peace and LIVE life!

Scientifically proven

Neuroscientists have discovered that after just 8 weeks of mindfulness practice, the brain literally changes shape. They have reported changes in the parts of the brain (cerebral cortex,  hippocampus, insula & amygdala) associated with:

  • feeling happier,
  • more focused
  • more compassionate (to ourselves and others) and
  • better able to deal with anxiety and stress.
  • also Scientists have also found that mindfulness slows down the ageing process

The 8 week course

Over the duration of the course, we will cover many different topics, some of which are:

  • Simple, short ways to bring presence to your day. 
  • The power of compassion – cultivating a kinder, gentler relationship with yourself not only helps you achieve your goals but also transforms your life. 
  • The science of mindfulness.
  • The brain – it’s wired for survival and not success. 
  • We are like teflon for positivity and velcro for negativity
  • Multitasking & autopilot – how they’re not good for you!
  • Reacting v’s responding to your triggers. Why the latter is so important and can save years of drama. 
  • The body scan for a restful night’s sleep, cultivating a mind body connection and working with your body to achieve your goals.

Each week you will receive comprehensive notes, tips for bringing mindfulness into your life and an accompanying recorded mindfulness practice for use at home.  

By the end of the 8 weeks you will have a “Mindfulness Toolkit” of information and meditations that will help you deal with any situation in your life.

I was looking for a way to help me not to worry as much. I felt if I could learn to relax more it would help me and I hoped through the learning of how to meditate I could do this. I think the zoom worked well. Being at home probably made me join the course quicker as less hassle and less stress . The Dropbox worked well for me and easy to follow and find the saved item. I went in looking for help with worry/stress but realised I benefited from other areas like listening , acceptance , less judgmental which has actually help me not to worry and stress as much. The PNB is also something which I daily use and I think can often change an argument I would previously had into a laugh and giggle. Often just saying the word Breathe out loud rather than reacting has made a huge change for me. I will definitely do a course again as I think the idea of meeting up weekly makes you continue with the practices and I think will help learn more about mindfulness which I wish I had done in my 20’s.

Your facilitator

I am a qualified Biochemist from Trinity College, Dublin and over the past 15 years I have read, studied and practiced mindfulness. I have trained with some of the leading experts, gone on retreats all over the world and held some of my own. I have also worked teaching 8 week mindfulness courses in the community, in companies and as a 1:1.

I am passionate about mindfulness as I can honestly say that it has changed my life! I know that can sound very OTT at times and it wasn’t this sudden flash of light that came down and I was enlightened, sitting lotus position, emanating love (wouldn’t that be wonderful!) No, it was over time and with patience and commitment I found that old behaviours that didn’t serve me well melted away, negative beliefs no longer held me captive and I wasn’t a victim of my emotions (finally!)

The changes were incremental and yet they were very obvious once I became aware of them. I actually began to feel more comfortable within myself which I never thought possible having suffered with depression for most of my life. With that everything changed for the better.

FAQ

What if I miss a week?

All the classes are recorded and uploaded to a Dropbox folder each week. This is shared with class participants so that they can catch up in their own time.

Is anything asked of me, that is, will I have to speak or contribute?

I do ask for a short check in at the beginning of every class. This is optional each week so if you’d prefer not to speak or be on camera that is absolutely fine with me. The check in is literally to see how you got on with the weeks recommendations and how I can help you with your mindfulness experience.

What if I have a question but I don’t want to ask it via Zoom?

I encourage all participants to contact me via email or phone during the course with any mindfulness questions and queries, I’m always more than happy to help.

It was excellent, Ellen is such lovely person, the attention she gives is by far the best I have ever experienced. Having everything at hand through dropbox all downloadable is super. The zoom calls were excellent. It was such a life changing way of looking at things form a personal level and to give you those skills of taking time out for yourself and to be kinder to yourself and others. Personally I learnt a lot about myself, which has helped my dealing with certain aspects of life that effected it and how learnt how to accept them and move forward with skills Ellen has taught me. A big thank you Ellen. Truly one nicest people out there. Would recommend her to anyone looking at mindfulness.

Practising mindfulness made me realise that there is a level of calmness which most of us never get to experience in our daily lives because we don’t know how to gain access to.
