Living Life with Mindfulness (LLwM)
Bringing Awareness to Mind
Mindfulness is a practice that has become a way of life for many people all over the world. Many have reaped benefits in all areas of their lives and have seen changes in how they view themselves, their relationships, family, career, health and money.
Basically, mindfulness is a state of being interested in what our mind is doing in the present moment. When a person is mindful, they are aware of their thoughts, feelings and actions with the Right Attitude and Right View. Instead of living in an auto-pilot mode, we invite you to live in the moment and be awaken to the workings of your own mind which will then lead to a truer understanding of life.
These sessions of Living Life with Mindfulness are about people supporting each other; a platform where we invite practitioners of mindfulness to share from their personal experiences on how mindfulness has played a part in improving/transforming their lives. They are not going to profess that they have all the answers and these sessions are not about giving advice or trying to fix you or your issues, but one that offers an exploratory space where people come together to hear different perspectives. Our invited practitioners will share how their practise of mindfulness have made a difference to similar challenges that we all face in our lives. Our hope is that people facing such challenges will then have better clarity and new information which may help to shed light on what’s happening in their lives and show alternative ways of dealing with such challenges. Interaction is highly encouraged and valued during the sessions.
The practitioners are from all walks of life and their sharing is voluntary. So everyone is welcome to join the sessions.
No participation fee will be charged for these sessions as their costs are fully sponsored by WISE. The next session is scheduled as follows.
Venue: WISE Centre at Kelana Jaya
Exchange: Expenses to enable this session to take place have been fully sponsored by WISE.
