I've tried meditation and I can't do it!
Yes we know! Everybody has this experience when they first start mindfulness practice. It is not a problem and won't stand in your way of developing more ease and peace in your life through the MBSR training. It is just "grist for the mill". Most people in the class will feel the same way.
We need to start with the mind we have. If it is busy and preoccupied - that is the perfect place to begin. Initially, mindfulness practice is really about becoming familiar with your own mind and body and exploring ways to soothe, calm and simply explore how we tick.
Step-by-step throughout the course you will be offered lots of different ways of practicing in order to bring this way of being more into your life. The science is really motivating as we find out why we have such jumpy, 'jack-rabbit' minds and what they need in order to calm down and become a little clearer.
