Despite the myriad number
of choices we are faced
with daily, it is surprising
how little attention we place
on the decisions we make.
Why Learn Mindfulness?
Most people learn mindfulness due to the following reasons:
- Anxiety: Nervousness about the unknown or anxious about not meeting expectations.
- Depression: Experiencing a frequent cycle of melancholia.
- Discontentment: Noticing that most things you strive for and attain do not give you a lasting sense of satisfaction, no matter how successful or wealthy you are.
- Self-questioning: Not sure of who or what you really are.
- Fear: Wanting a sense of control but never really getting it.

What You Will Learn
We offer Mindfulness-Based Strategic Awareness Training (MBSAT), a non-clinical secularised 8-week mindfulness course for decision-making. You will learn the following in our 8-week course:
- Meditation techniques to calm the mind. A calm mind is equivalent to a tranquil landscape where you can see the flora and fauna (your thoughts and feelings) clearly as opposed to the scenery being obscured by the storm.
- Reflecting on your habitual reactive patterns to life and learning to change it into helpful patterns.
- Daily practices to centre your mind so that you are not easily distracted by the mind’s restlessness, drowsiness and discontentment for a more conscious and purposeful life.
A lasting sense of well-being and contentment comes with effort and work. The below learning outcome can be experienced by a sincere mindfulness practitioner who is willing to make consistent effort:
- Understanding that you have a choice as to how you think and feel regardless of circumstances.
- Using the space and stillness you already have in you to make wise decisions that help you and others.
- You realise you already have the resource to pay attention, find the centre within yourself and not be carried away by stress or excitement to make unwise decisions.
- Not running away from negative thoughts, emotions and events but facing them in order to learn to transform them into something helpful for yourself and others instead of blaming it on external events.
- Mindfulness eventually becomes a habit and you learn to notice and transform heavy thoughts and emotions that arise into lighter ones on a daily basis.
