About This Presentation
Title:

Mindfulness meditation

Description:

It is difficult for us to let go of our thoughts, but sometimes the more we want to suppress , the louder it becomes. Mindfulness teaches how to shift the focus to a single point of reference, such as one’s breath or bodily sensations, or a word or phrase known as a mantra. The practise has been shown to minimise distraction and rumination, make it easier to let go of negative unconscious thoughts, and encourage greater enjoyment of the present moment. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Introduction


Look past your thoughts, so you may drink the pure
nectar of This Moment. - Rumi
Mindfulness is This Moment It is being present in
the current moment, paying full attention to it
with an attitude that is non-judgmental,
curious, and kind. It is something all humans are
born with except for the fact that we frequently
stray from the topic at hand. Our minds take
off, we lose contact with our bodies, and we
find ourselves absorbed in obsessive thoughts
about the past or worrying about the future. As a
result, we are concerned. Lets go forward how
this ancient Buddhist practice is more relevant
for coaches and leaders.

From Mind-full to Mindful
It is the nature of our mind to wander. As you
begin to think, your mind will begin to plan
for the future or recall events from the past.
Thus, awareness is drawing attention to the way
the mind operates. Awareness is Absolute Reality.
What brings you to exploring mindfulness?
Why Mindfulness-Meditation? Buddhism situated
consciousness in both the mind and the body. It
contends that mindfulness practices, namely
mindfulness- meditation, can alter the learned
patterns of interaction between the body, mind,
and environment. Within Buddhist spiritual paths,
other meditation practices have been developed
as a means to alter these conditioned patterns,
such as concentrative/focused attention
meditation practices. Only mindfulness-meditation
practices are thought to be the only means to
fully acknowledge complex interactions among
different sources of sensory and mental
experiences, as well as the self- referential
and ultimately self transcending process of
awareness.

A Word To Coaches
Although the ways of meditation varied from
place to place, it was never dismissed as
mere hocus pocus by anyone. Its effects are so
strong that if meditation is practiced long
enough, the inner architect of the human brain
is changed.
With this donkey race of the modern world,
people need coaches. They need to work, to
lead, to have peace at home. Altogether it is
their need to get their life together. You can
serve a purpose to bring them to a better state
of mind.
Mindfulness has moved to popular psychology and
medicine, becoming a pivotal clinical technique
it has been incorporated, among others, into
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive herapy
It can also help individuals identify and embrace
negative emotions. When the meditator has social
support, such as in a formal group setting or
with the aid of a friend or family member, it
can be especially effective. Especially in a
coaching environment.
If you are a mindfulness coach, you are already a
certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
(MBSR) trainer. At Coaching the Brain, you get
to polish your niche as a trained mindfulness
coach.

Be A Mindful Leader
Mindfulness has been shown to assist leaders in
managing their stress, which in turn reduces
employee stress, fosters a more positive work
environment, and improves the bottom line.
1
When leaders actively engage in mindfulness
practices, the psychological capital of an
organization rises.
2
Harvard Business Review research identified 3
specific areas of mastery that allow leaders to
be more present.
3
There has been scant robust research on the
actual impact of mindfulness training on
organisational leaders, leaving us with little
understanding of whether, why, and how
mindfulness practices might affect leadership
effectiveness.
Metacognition- The ability to take a step back
to observe at a distance what is happening
around you.
4
Allowing- Being open to what is happening
without judgment or yourself or anyone else.
5
Does eight weeks of mindfulness training and
practise have an effect on leaders capacity for
resilience, collaboration, and complexity
leadership? If it does, how exactly does it
work? What are leaders perspectives on
mindfulness practise?
Curiosity- The Impetus behind bringing awareness
into the present moment.
6
As is the case with most things in a company or
organization, this initiative begins at the top.
Leaders must keep in mind that they are
constantly being observed.

and your company to your employees? Pause and
Ask.

Healing with Mindfulness-Meditation
Mindfulness coaching is for healing not for
fixing. Whether you are a coach or a coachee
always remember you are getting healed, not
fixed. The trick is to accept the emotion not to
become the emotion. It is quick and easy to
learn meditation methods. One of the many
advantages of becoming aware is the freedom to
step out of what is considered an emotional
cage. At times of stress, concern, fear, and
highly heavy emotions, we are literally taken
away by a part of our brain that takes the
driving seat. Mindfulness can help you improve
your well-being both as a personal and
professional practice. It allows you to create a
positive change not only for your own personal
life and well-being but also that of those you
train. Mindfulness help you in-
Increasing attention and focus
Lowering anxiety levels
Increased immune function
Lowering heart rate
Attain the feeling of being connected yet
detached

Conclusion
Once you understand whats at stake, youll want
to exercise extreme caution in your actions and
words. One begins to sense the freedom and
lightness associated with that harmony with
nature, as opposed to the heaviness associated
with nature exploitation for personal gain.
Meditation is an investigative process. This is
not a predetermined route. Your mind is not
vacuumed clean of thought, leaving you completely
uninhibited. Its a unique location where every
moment is significant. Mindfulness meditation
invites us to suspend judgement and embrace our
natural curiosity about the workings of the
mind, with an attitude of warmth and kindness
toward ourselves and others. In conclusion,
Mindfulness is an affirmation card to feel good
and happy in a world full of anxiety, stress, and
sorrow. BE HAPPY, BE PRESENT, DO NOT DWELL IN
THE PAST, AND LIVE IN THIS MOMENT.
