What is Mindfulness?
It is an ongoing process of working at being present and needs to be kept alive.
From my personal experience, mindfulness has given me the ability and option of being attentive, to being present, to holding the space inside myself. To feel what is going on, in my mind and my body and when teaching with the group.
From the beginning to the present day, my experiences and perception have slowly deepened my view of sacred mime clowning.
There is more to this than putting on a red nose.
By learning to be more alive in myself, I bring this home to my relationship with my family, my friends, my work colleagues.
My workshops now are more focussed on mindfulness and presence.
For example: I learn to let go of preconceived ideas and slowly adjust to what is. I remind myself, I have the ability in this moment to come home to my breath, to be in my body. To simply arrive and take one step at a time
