Description

Mindfulness is a mind-body approach to life that helps us to relate to our experiences with more accuracy and clarity. Mindfulness involves being acutely aware of our thoughts, emotions, and actions. It means being present in each moment and paying close attention to what is happening in the present, instead of focusing on past events or future predictions.

This Mindfulness Practitioner course is available so that anyone, anywhere, can learn to develop, practise and teach pragmatic mindfulness in a personal, social or professional capacity. Mindfulness training and applied private practice is the basis for all personal and ongoing professional development.

Mindfulness Practitioner Course (Level I, II, III & Master) is practically structured around three different domains of learning; direct teaching, theoretical frameworks and guided self-reflection. Each of these domains supports each other working in unison to provide you with an efficient online learning experience.

Throughout this comprehensive training, you will gain a grounded understanding of the psychology that underpins mindfulness; it's philosophical foundations, the history of mindfulness alongside a broad range of today's most relevant approaches, styles and techniques.

Upon completion of the course, you will understand:

  • The factors that make for a successful secular Mindfulness practice.
  • How Mindfulness can be applied in a personal or professional context.
  • What mindfulness models can be used to empower your and\or your clients.
  • How to deepen the connection between your head, heart and innate intuition.
  • The primary thought-patterns that negate emotional wellbeing and wholeness.
  • The common limiting beliefs that negate emotional wellbeing and wholeness.
  • The core principles that underpin effective mindfulness coaching and inquiry.
  • How to facilitate transformative change in other people conversationally.
  • And much more.

You will be fascinated to discover the principles of secular mindfulness, and how it can be applied in everyday life to live in the present and become more aware of how you experience life. By residing in the here and now, you will recognise how to experience simple pleasures in a meaningful way that promotes a deeper sense of contentment.

Mindfulness Practitioner Course (Level I, II, III & Master) focuses specifically on your self-awareness, of not only yourself but of your day-to-day relationships and how you perceive the world. This comprehensive online training course is self-paced and will provide everything you need to develop a grounded understanding of everything that you need to know for becoming a competent and confident Mindfulness Practitioner.

Most people think of mindfulness as relief from anxiety or depression, a cure for health problems or a recipe for inner peace and increased concentration.

However, the truth is that mindfulness does not aim to achieve any of these. Mindfulness is simply an Eastern practice to train our mind. It is a practice that cultivates sustained conscious wakefulness or presence. Mindfulness is all about raising awareness of ‘what is’.

The Benefits of Mindfulness
02:32

In this insightful video, Kain discusses the three main ways in which we see and perceive as humans.

1: Seeing with eyes (seeing without insight nor comprehension) Physical sight.

  • Thea = Greek for unconsidered observation. Bilepi
  • Theorei (Greek) = to observe intently looking for a reasonable explanation.
  • Horao (Greek) To perceive and believe without personal bias or prejudice.

There is a single, intelligent Consciousness that pervades the entire Universe - the Universal Mind.

It is all knowing, all powerful, all creative and always present. As it is present everywhere at the same time, it follows that it must also be present in you.

Your mind is part of the one Universal Mind. This is not merely a philosophical ideal passed down to us through the ages. Know it, believe it, apply it and you will see your life transform in miraculous ways.

Human beings have a hugely unhelpful tendency of rejecting those things that they do not understand, and subsequently, have had many complaints about mindfulness (and the practice of it).

For the most part, these claims are commonly based on misunderstandings of what mindfulness is (and isn't) about. In this short article, Kain will tackle 12 of these misunderstandings.

Mindfulness is not an easy concept to define but can be best understood as the process of drawing novel distinctions. It does not matter whether what is noticed is important or trivial, as long as it is new to the viewer. Actively drawing these distinctions keeps us situated in the present.

It also makes us more aware of the context and perspective of our actions than if we rely upon distinctions and categories drawn in the past. Under this latter situation, rules and routines are more likely to govern our behavior, irrespective of the current circumstances, and this can be construed as mindless behaviour.

Mindfulness is a state of conscious awareness in which the individual is implicitly aware of the context and content of information. It is a state of openness to novelty in which the individual actively constructs categories and distinctions. In this lecture, Kain will discuss the core components of mindfulness.

There are many factors that can prevent us from hearing (and learning). It's important to become mindful of these barriers, many of which are just bad habits, in order to become a more effective listener.

We can easily pick up bad habits when it comes to listening. Listening is a key interpersonal skill and a prerequisite to many other communication skills, therefore, by learning to listen more effectively you can improve the quality of both your professional and personal life - especially if you go on to practice Mindfulness with clients on into the future.

The Core Attitudes of Mindlessness
18:25

There are Seven Core Attitudes of Mindfulness

  1. Non-judging – Suspending Judgment ... Just Watching Whatever Comes Up
  2. Patience – Not spitting the dummy (a Scottish saying).
  3. Beginner’s Mind – Seeing With “Fresh Eyes”.
  4. Trust – No Imitations, Live Own Life, and Honour Own Feelings, Intuitions, Wisdom
  5. Non-striving – Mindfulness is a 'non-doing!'
  6. Acceptance – Clear picture & Coming to terms with things as they really are.
  7. Letting go –  Not Clinging onto 'people or stuff'.


This article has intended to help you identify certain qualities of the mind and heart, the attitudes of non-judging, patience, beginner’s mind, trust, non-striving, acceptance, and letting go, i.e. the seven Core Attitudes, which together serve as the foundation for engagement in and practising mindfulness.

Mindfulness and meditation have both been shown to have physical and mental health benefits, but many people get confused between the two. Jon Kabat-Zinn, who has studied mindfulness for more than 35 years, says practising mindfulness is a form of meditation, not meditating.

Mindfulness suggests that we CAN have the life we want, but it probably won’t be found by changing the “world out side of ourselves.” It comes from changing the world INSIDE because we actually LIVE and experience our lives inside of our skin. 

Mindfulness is the path we use to live that life. When was the last time that you were truly mindful?

What if I told you that I have a heart condition? What would your reaction be? Most likely, you would respond with gasps of "oh no!" You would probably feel sorry for me.

But the truth is, I do have a heart condition…and so do you. Your heart's condition depends on the things you allow into your heart. These things form your thoughts and attitudes, and ultimately, shape the deepest part of your being. 

But if wrong things in our hearts go unattended, they will become deeply rooted and harder to deal with. The quicker you can detect a wrong heart condition and get it straightened out, the better off you are.

So how do we do that? Sometimes, identifying a problem is the first step towards moving beyond it!

Mindfulness is a very deep word but it’s often mistaken as being awake or aware. It is being aware and not being aware at the same. You become mindful of the things around and of yourself if you let all the events around to happen without having to think or care about them.

There are three dimensions of mindfulness which kain will introduce you to in this lecture.

One of the clearest and most useful ways to describe practice is in the terms of the seven factors of enlightenment. These are the natural qualities of mind that the Buddha described as the constituents of a proper spiritual practice. A mind in which these factors are fully developed and balanced experiences freedom.

The leading factor is mindfulness, the key to practice. Mindfulness, noticing the object in the present moment, also has the function of brining these factors into proper balance.

By now, I hope that you can appreciate how whenever you are paying attention to what is happening in the present moment, you are mindful (and in a state of mindful awareness).

This is a desirable state because when you are mindful, you won’t be lost in discursive thinking about the past or future. It also means you will be experiencing your emotions without resistance, and this is going to eliminate most of your mental suffering.

The ‘7 factors of enlightenment’ are attitudes and mental states that together will significantly increase the likelihood of insight whenever you become aware of yourself in any given moment.

As humans, we have a longing (or yearning) for satisfaction. We are personal beings. We also have a capacity for evaluative thinking. We are rational beings. A third capacity is that of active choosing. We are volitional beings. Lastly, we can feel emotions. We are emotional beings.

Wisdom and knowledge, are both related but are not synonymous. The dictionary defines wisdom as “the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.” Knowledge, on the other hand, is “information gained through experience, reasoning, or acquaintance.”

Knowledge can exist without wisdom, but not the other way around. One can be knowledgeable without being wise. Knowledge is knowing how to use a gun; wisdom is knowing when to use it and when to keep it holstered.

But where did wisdom come from? Here's a few ideas!

The Mind can be our greatest ally or our most troublesome foe if we don't fully understand it, nor how to manage it. Recognising how your mind works can be the first step we take towards mastering it.

Holism is the theory that parts of a whole are in intimate interconnection, such that they cannot exist independently of the whole, or cannot be understood without reference to the whole, which is thus regarded as greater than the sum of its parts.

Thoughts, like our emotions, tend to arise without any effort or conscious intention. Thoughts will often pop into our minds and end up taking on a life of their own.

There are many triggers that send people 'over the edge', including stress and other personal issues.

Sudden, drastic changes in your life, such as the death of a spouse or family member, marital separation or divorce, the loss of a job, incarceration or personal injury can result in emotional overload and overwhelming feelings of helplessness.

Unexpected environmental challenges, such as extreme weather or natural disasters, can also make you feel like you’re experiencing a personal crisis.

The Strongest of Life Foundations

There is only one set of foundations that you can build your life upon which is strong enough to sustain you, and this is the truth of who you are.

All of us have a public self that others see as well as our private thoughts and feelings, but we also have a deeper self which could be called the “core self.” Many people waste a lot of time and energy worrying about what others think or say about them.

A distorted relational dynamic created by disempowered people is called triangulation. If you believe that other people are unsafe or more powerful than you, and if you believe that you need them to meet your needs, there one of three roles you can play in your relationships: the victim, the bad guy, or the rescuer.

Let’s take a look at the mindset of each of these roles:

In this busy world of ours, the mind is frequently pulled from pillar to post, scattering our thoughts, our emotions and leaving us feeling stressed, highly-strung or even quite anxious.

Most of us don’t have five minutes to sit down and relax, let alone 30 minutes or more for a meditation session. But it is essential for our wellbeing to take a few moments each day to cultivate mental spaciousness and achieve a positive mind-body balance.

Try using these simple mindfulness exercises to empty your mind and find some much-needed calm amidst the madness of your hectic day.

The 'Best Possible Self' Exercise
01:39

So often, we can become so engrossed in the busyness of daily life that we fail to appreciate the simple things. One of the primary reasons why we fail to appreciate the simple things is because we don't take the time to notice, observe, consider and just experience them.

In Western culture, most of us can so commonly be guilty of going so fast that we spend more time focussing on what our next task will be, that we spend no time appreciating the simple things that we often take for granted.

This is a great exercise to present to a client as homework in-between sessions - especially for those who live chaotic and stressful lives. This exercise will provoke them to 'take some time out' to appreciate 8 things that they may not have considered or appreciate in the Monet for years.

Mindfulness Practitioner Course (Level I, II, III & Master)

The 'Explain Yourself' Exercise

Why do most of us revert to money when we think of assets or liabilities?

Assets and liabilities do include your monetary value of things you possess, but it should also include the value of the work you do, the people that surround you, the enjoyment or disappointment that you have to go through in life, and the value and appreciation that you get for being who you are.

I've long held a fascination with the concept of time travel. Movies with time travel themes, such as 'Back to the Future' (1985, 1987 and 1990) and were amongst my favourites.

But the reality is that we can't see into our future, and we can't go back to change the mistakes of the past, much as we might like to. Despite this, many of us do a lot of emotional time travelling every day. Some of us are stuck in an unresolved past, fretting and regretting about what we did and what we should have done instead.

How do we change these habits so that we can be more fully present? There is no question that it is hard to shift our focus when we have had years of practice in living another way. But just as we learned to avoid our present, we can learn to engage in it again by understanding this idea of emotional time travel.

As children, we learn by watching and mimicking others. First, we learn to walk and talk. Then we develop social skills by observing and imitating those around us.

The goal of our learning years is to teach us how to function within society so that we can be autonomous, self-sufficient adults. The idea is that the adults in the community around us help us to reach this point through supporting our ability to make decisions and take action ourselves.

However, our learning years are just our first stage of life in consideration of the bigger picture. In this lecture, Kain will offer you a structure for life that'll help you help your clients to manage their lives more effectively.

Our belief structure comprises of how (and what) we think, what we believe and why we believe what we do and about ourselves and the world in which we live. It is through our beliefs that we connect to the world and environment we live.

Our belief structure is the total of everything that we believe, consciously, subconsciously, unconsciously and how these beliefs all merge. Our beliefs and the structure of these beliefs, characterise the energy that we divert into thoughts, images, ideas, and our actions.

Belief structure is what gives rise to our opinions, judgments, understanding and most importantly, the interpretations we have about the nature of reality and our day-to-day experience.

When we think of our values, we think of what is important to us in our lives (e.g., security, progress, wisdom, honesty, authenticity, fulfilment). 

Each of us holds numerous values with varying degrees of importance. A particular value may be paramount to one person, but then completely unimportant to another.

Much like company core values, your personal core values are there to guide behaviour and choice. Get them right and you'll be swift and focused in your decision-making, with clear direction.

Get them wrong or leave them ambiguous, and you'll constantly wonder how you got into this mess!

The main benefit of knowing your values is that you (and you life coaching clients) will gain tremendous clarity and focus. But ultimately you must use that newfound clarity to make consistent decisions and take committed action.

So the whole point of discovering your values is to improve the results you get in those areas that are truly most important to you. Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now.

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” ~ WINSTON CHURCHILL

In this video, Kain will discuss how the core values of Connection and Authenticity can sometimes conflict, which in turn, can leave life coaches (and clients alike) with a challenging decision to make.

When our actions (and words) come into alignment with our core values, life is generally good, and we feel content, confident and satisfied. But when our behaviours don’t match up with our values, we soon begin to experience a sense of uneasiness and discomfort in our soul (mind and emotions).
