Have you ever noticed when you are doing quite familiar and repetitive tasks, like driving your car, washing dishes, or even eating, your mind is often miles away thinking about something else? For example, you may be contemplating on your next holiday, worrying about your family, stressing about your work, etc. This is called being on “automatic pilot” mode. This is also often the way we live our lives: doing or thinking without being fully conscious of our thoughts or actions, that can lead to poor decision making and overall unhappiness.
In mindfulness, we are noticing what’s going on right now. We observe our thoughts without fully identifying with them, and notice their changing nature. They simply appear, stay for some time and disappear (often replaced by another one).
Mindfulness is an emotionally non-reactive state. By realising that we are not our thoughts, we start making conscious choices rather than reacting based on our past experiences ("auto-pilot mode"). The idea is not to control or suppress the thoughts, but rather being present with them in a non-judgemental way.
Formerly located in West End, the Mindfulness Circle is now located in Toowong in a bigger space.
