- do all the activities you normally do with friendly awareness?
- know in your heart how to live well with being the human you are?
- develop a part of yourself as a buddy or coach?

How would it feel to be truly present?
The Present is a new six-week online course designed to introduce mindfulness and well-being.
It is particularly relevant during these socially distanced new ways of being.
The Present focuses on encouraging friendly, mindful awareness towards experience as it shows up in our busy lives.
It supports exploration, discovery, and friendly awareness of how things already are for you in your life by introducing a variety of mindfulness practices that can be chosen to support your well-being.
The journey is exploratory and experiential.
The Present invites you to explore mindfulness through seven themes:
here & now
coming home to the human body
coming home to the human mind
choice and change.
The Present is for people who wish to bring a fresh approach to their mindfulness practice as well as for those who are curious to discover mindfulness for the first time.
I'm an Education Assistant in School District 61. I taught for 18 years in secondary schools in the UK. I've trained to teach Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for adults with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, at Bangor University, and with the Mindfulness in Schools Project, both based in the UK. I teach mindfulness to elementary and secondary school students and teachers. I recently completed postgraduate research with Cambridge University in how mindful attention can help frame teacher identity and agency in a secondary school context.
