What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is an ability to see more clearly
what is happening in the present moment,
with an attitude of accepting the way it is,
to respond both skilfully and appropriately.
With this quality of attention,
we can better understand our own concerns
and anxieties and feel more alive to the many situations which life presents.

‘Amaranatho helped to shape and evolve Eton College’s project to bring together year 10 students from our partner schools to explore aspects of their identity, beliefs and creative potential. He is endlessly patient, and understands how to create safe spaces for students to begin to listen to each other and themselves. He brought many rich ideas to the project, but also helped to guide other teachers in how to hold significant moments to help the students to articulate their instincts and to overcome their hesitations and doubts.’
