    An introduction to Mindfulness theory and practice by

    Vicky Kakos

    What is Mindfulness ?

    Professor Mark Williams, former director of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, says that mindfulness means knowing directly what is going on inside and outside ourselves, moment by moment.
    "It's easy to stop noticing the world around us. It's also easy to lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling and to end up living 'in our heads' – caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour," he says.

    “An important part of mindfulness is reconnecting with our bodies and the sensations they experience. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment. That might be something as simple as the feel of a banister as we walk upstairs. 

    "It's about allowing ourselves to see the present moment clearly. When we do that, it can positively change the way we see ourselves and our lives."

    The speaker at Thinking Allowed is Vicky Kakos

    Vicky completed the Mindfulness teacher training with her teacher, Suryacitta Malcolm Smith in 2016 and has been sharing Mindfulness with people in Southside Glasgow since then. Vicky provides two courses at Orchardhill - a Mindfulness course and also a Mindful Parenting course to help parents cope with the often relentless and demanding job of being a parent .

     Learn the basics of mindfulness meditation and find out how mindfulness can be useful in our daily lives.  Vicky will talk about what she has learned about Mindfulness and give people an introduction to the practice of Mindfuless, followed by some discussion about what mindfulness is, how it can be useful, and how to use it in everyday life.

    Doors open at 7.30 , the talk starts at 8pm.
