Open Heart Mindfulness Level 1 & 2 – IN PERSON – Taupo, New Zealand


Open Heart Mindfulness  Level 1 & 2, is a newly launched workshop for everyone living in the fast lane.

Natural Way of Living newest program, “Open Heart Mindfulness”

is for everyone to achieve mindfulness with a simple yet effective Open Heart method. Perfect for beginners and seasoned meditators.

Whether you are an executive, entrepreneur, office worker, student, or parent, daily stress and pressures continuously surround us. We can get so busy that it’s hard for us to simply stop thinking. We constantly get distracted with random thoughts or worries even when we are supposed to take a break or rest

Open Heart Mindfulness is a new program by Natural Way of Living to help the busy mind and heart to disengage from distractions and be centered in the present moments.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the ability we need to be fully present and free from distractions, not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. It is not a talent we are born with, rather it is a skill that needs to be practiced.

As described by Harvard Health Publishing from Harvard Medical School, these are the benefit of mindfulness

Mindfulness improves well-being. Increasing your capacity for mindfulness supports many attitudes that contribute to a satisfying life. Being mindful makes it easier to savor the pleasures in life as they occur, helps you become fully engaged in activities, and creates a greater capacity to deal with adverse events. By focusing on the here and now, many people who practice mindfulness find that they are less likely to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets over the past, are less preoccupied with concerns about success and self-esteem and are better able to form deep connections with others.

Mindfulness improves physical health. If greater well-being isn’t enough of an incentive, scientists have discovered that mindfulness techniques help improve physical health in a number of ways. Mindfulness can: help relieve stress, treat heart disease, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, and alleviate gastrointestinal difficulties.

Mindfulness improves mental health. In recent years, psychotherapists have turned to mindfulness meditation as an important element in the treatment of a number of problems, including depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, couples’ conflicts, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

How Open Heart will help with mindfulness?

The heart is the deepest center of human consciousness and it is also the center of peacefulness and happiness. With Open Heart Mindfulness, you can activate the heart to bring balance and calm the mind with its positive qualities.

The mindfulness method with Open Heart helps you clear your mind, be fully aware and be more happily engaged with the present moments.
