COCOON & MINDFULNESS
What is mindfulness & why do we need it in our lives?
"You can't stop the waves but you can learn to surf."
We live in an ever-changing, fast-paced world and in a nutshell, mindfulness helps us to create awareness of self and the surrounding environment. Mindful living can be practiced anywhere and at anytime. From the office to your home and anywhere in between, there is always an opportunity to establish mind, body & soul reconnection. Plus, there is no age-restriction. In fact, the earlier you introduce mindful living & meditation to your family, the better! Research suggests that human-beings are distracted with cluttered minds and automatic responses for roughly over 50% of the day. Mindfulness helps create the necessary space needed between thoughts and feelings to awaken from autopilot, and truly observe the authenticity of the present moment, with less struggle and attachment to outcome.
COCOON aims to equip individuals with the means to deal with physical and emotional pain, stress and anxiety, as well as building emotional resilience. We do so by holding 'face 2 face' and online, individual or small group sessions & also offer school and teacher training workshops.
Lynette Tipper PCC, founder of COCOON, is a UK registered Mindfulness Now educator and uses the Mindfulness Now teaching method, approved by The British Psychological Society, which integrates key elements of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). Both are evidence based, and the latter is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Formal meditation practice is an important part of mindfulness, allowing
participants to be led through regular practice meditations, each followed
by a particular form of discussion/feedback (enquiry). No prior meditation
practice is necessary, just an open heart and mind.
Neuroscientists have shown that practicing mindfulness affects brain areas
related to perception, body awareness, pain tolerance, emotional regulation,
introspection, complex thinking and sense of self.
AND with research on Mindfulness and the benefits for teenagers gaining traction,
there is strong evidence to suggest that it can be especially helpful for young people
suffering from ADHD, anxiety and depression, which has seen a sharp increase
in numbers since the pandemic struck.
