Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
"It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one." George Harrison
We all naturally have mindfulness, and practicing mindfulness on a daily basis can have dramatic results. Learn how to be in the present moment, experience the joy and love that comes naturally to human beings. Explore the wonder and transformation of mindfulness and learn to feel peace, wholeness, happiness and love for yourself.
Bhavna wish is for her clients to experience this too - to find their way of reconnecting with life and expressing who they are fully.
Given the popularity of mindfulness, it is important to find a mindfulness practitioner for whom mindfulness is not a technique but a lived experience. Bhavna has been actively practicing mindfulness since 2005.
Bhavna also offers mindfulness retreats and workshops, enabling participants to have a deep experience of mindfulness and to facilitate healing. See her events page here.
Group sessions to deepen your understanding of mindfulness and self-love are held at Bay Wellness on the last Thursday of the month. Come along to explore your journey to their heart.
Please contact Bhavna if you would like to participate in these monthly sessions.
Therapy and Counselling
"It's not too difficult to get the skeletons out of the closet with people, but to get the gold out is a different matter. That is therapy. Psychology is the Art of finding the gold of the spirit." Robert Johnson
