What is Mindfulness and how can Mindfulness Classes in Norwich help me? Read More here – Living in past trauma, or worrying about future concerns can have a huge affect your present state of mind can feel overwhelming. When we use Mindfulness to relearn how to respond from the heart instead of reacting from the head we can improve our quality of life and Wellbeing. This course will help you to do that in a practical and modern way.
Mindfulness Norwich-What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is simply living in the present moment without judgement. This is a way of relearning how we experience the small details of the world around you and build an appreciation and gratitude for the world around you that perhaps you had forgotten about.
When we learn how to do this and begin to experience life through the heart rather than the head we learn how to respond to situations rather than reacting to them which in turn helps us to relearn how we see the world on a daily basis to improve wellbeing.
What’s the Difference between Mindfulness and Meditation?
Although Mindfulness and Meditation are similar, there are some key differences. Mindfulness is more about being in the moment and paying attention to your thoughts and your environment without judgement- living in that moment completely. Where as meditation is more focussed on connecting to your mind and higher self knowledge.
See it as this when we meditate we are connecting to the deepest parts of our awareness inwardly, when we are mindful we are paying attention to the outward elements in more detail in the moment.

I love Cathy’s meditation classes, and I have attended quite a few over the last few years.The classes are so varied, thoughtful and I always come away with a new insight, relaxed and with a feeling of having been met. Thank you Cathy x
I felt so welcome on my first meditation course that I’ve now completed three. Absolutely love Cathy’s way of working and can’t wait to do my Reiki level 1.
I attended Cathy’s guided meditation sessions which really opened my eyes to the truth meaning of total relaxation. As a mature student I have had to juggle university work and being on a placement, plus a house move. I do not think I would have been able to cope had I not learned how to be more mindful.
I just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful meditation group that I have been so lucky to have been part of. I have enjoyed it so much and found that it has helped me on so many levels, I feel that spiritually I have really grown which is just wonderful, and it has helped me to cope with stress and anxiety, to calm my mind and it has trained me to relax properly! I have found the content of each session fascinating with so much more I want to learn about and discover. I can’t wait to get started with all the other exciting groups! Thank you so much for enriching my life!
