You've already studied mindfulness meditation and felt some benefit, but YOU KEEP FORGETTING to be mindful, don't you, when you're out doing stuff, right?

You're not reaching the 'Gold Standard' of Mindfulness!

The 'gold standard' of mindfulness is staying mindful while you do things.

So where are you going wrong, and why you aren't enjoying your mindfulness all day long?

The answer is catching yourself the moment a new stimulus or idea arrives, and bridging that gap so you stay mindful while you do stuff. That's the real goal for mindfulness.

This video course shows you in easy steps how to bridge that gap, and provides a practice road-map, so you can enjoy being mindful all day long!

Here's the deal, most mindfulness meditation practise works like this:

Be conscious of yourself, be present in the moment, and non-judgementally take stock of what your mind and body are telling you.

There are many different ways to learn mindfulness meditation, ranging from awareness of the breath to focusing on compassion or loving kindness.

The benefits of mindfulness include less stress and anxiety, greater confidence, and living your life to the full.

And it's simple enough, if you practice your mindfulness meditation – you've already found that out, right?

But I'll bet my bottom dollar you keep drifting off when you're following your breath. And most of the day you're not mindful at all – more like mind-dull! All those hours spent in mindfulness meditation for only a little benefit. And is it really, honestly helping you, right now, when you're using a computer or screen, or even doing anything where you have to keep reacting?

This is the gap that Active Mindfulness bridges.

Active Mindfulness instruction is fun, fast and fascinating.

We'll take advantage of the skills I've built up over the years teaching people just like you, who love mindfulness, but struggle to keep it going all day long.

You'll find...

  • Easy bite-sized training sessions.
  • Short, no-nonsense seven-minute mindfulness meditations.
  • Step-by-step instructions to build up your mindfulness.
  • Beginner, intermediate and advanced mindfulness challenges in real-world settings to take your Active Mindfulness to the next level.
  • Bonus advanced techniques to help you flourish.
  • And regular updates, support and one-to-one help as you need it.
  • Your course is available on PC, Mac, Android and iphone, and on Udemy is backed by a no-quibble 30 day money back guarantee, so you've absolutely nothing to lose. Enroll, click "Take This Course" and start right away, or leave and stay stuck in the same old rut... you're free to choose!

Learning mindfulness is a skill.

A skill you can't master by putting in more effort.

In fact, the real skill to learning this is by learning this lightly.

Here you'll learn just how to learn Active Mindfulness: Lightly!

Learning Active Mindfulness takes time.

Taking the time to make sure you progress evenly and constantly will really help.

If you get stuck or an exercise is too much for you, simply go back a bit and start again.

Trying to push through if you haven't made earlier progress won't get you results, but taking the time to move on only once you're ready will!

It's all too easy to forget to be mindful.

That's what this course is all about - being more mindful and keeping it going, 24/7 (OK OK, I know, I'll let you sleep!)

You just can't notice when you forget to be mindful - so praise yourself when you do notice. It means you've remembered - it's a win!

Course pre-requisite number 1 is having a head.

Do you have a head? Great!

If you don't, this course isn't for you, go away and find a head. Preferably yours!

We'll start to ease you into the process by finding your head, where it balances, where your brain is, and how this affects your ability to stay mindful.

Learning This Starts You On Your Journey To Mastery. We All Have This, Honest!

Course pre-requisite number 2 is having eyes.

I think you get the idea by now!

Becoming aware of your visual system helps you to stay mindful as you see out into the world.

This Simple Knowledge Helps Balance Inner And Outer Mindful Awareness

Learn the difference between 'concentrating' and 'unconcentrating'.

'Concentration' used to mean paying attention to things in relation to their environment. Think 'concentric' circles, for example.

But nowadays it means focusing on one thing at the expense of everything else (usually your mindfulness and your health!)

Just like 'trying'. Trying used to mean 'attempting', but nowadays it means 'putting in more and more effort'.

Trying hard and concentrating are counter-productive when you're learning mindfulness or meditation.

Find out how to get the right state of mind, which means you can learn much more quickly.

I'm guessing you have feet.

You use them to stand on, a lot!

Now we're starting to build towards a full-body mindfulness.

Can you manage this exercise?

Preview 01:47

Here's a really important point.

Pulling your attention down to try to feel your body means you'll lose awareness of your environment. Because you'll be 'trying' and 'concentrating' on 'feeling'.

This exercise will help you find the balance by letting the sense-data from your body rise up easily into your brain.

Sounds odd doesn't it? But once you try this, it will be as clear as day.
