Deep
Wellbeing.

Imagine a form of wellbeing that is independent of external circumstances, that involves a confident, stable, emotionally positive mind, free from anxiety and undue worry.

We call this Deep Wellbeing.

Transitioning into Deep Wellbeing

Transitioning into deep wellbeing takes some effort. This usually starts with some mindfulness practice, and then moves onto exploring our experience, and the assumptions we make about it.

The transition is noticeable for most people, bringing with it a shift in perception that changes our experience of life.

Deep Wellbeing is nothing new. Humans have known about it for thousands of years. What is new is the extent to which understanding that has been locked inside religious traditions is becoming available to secular audiences, most notably due to increasing validation through scientific research.

Why Seek Deep Wellbeing?

Alleviate anxiety

Anxiety is the scourge of the modern age. So many aspects of modern life are anxiety producing. However, with an understanding of how the brain works, we can approach, aleviate, and even ultimately erradicate anxiety.

Reduce Self-Judgement

So many of us have runaway minds - forever re-evaluating our actions in the past, rehearsing again and again possible scenarios for the future, regardless of whether this will actually change anything. With Deep Wellbeing, this runaway mind quietens. Self-referential thoughts abate, and the mind becomes a quieter, more pleasant place to dwell.

Relieve Trauma

Trauma is far more prevalent within society than once thought. As a response to difficult events which go unprocessed, clear attention can help these experiences be integrated, and alleviate the disruptive symptoms that trauma brings to our lives.

Perspective

Some basic psychology, drawn from neuroscience, helps us understand how we can change.

Noting

We explore what is happening in our experience. Here, we attempt to label experience without thinking about it. This helps us experience more directly what is happening.

Welcoming

Once we have learned to notice what is happening, we learn to welcome it, whether pleasant or unpleasant.

Engaging

Once we have learned to welcome whatever is present in our experience, we can start to engage with that experience - learn to listen fully to what is there.

Questioning

We explore the difference between thinking and sensing, and to check the labels we apply to experience - to see whether they stand up to scrutiny.

Who am I anyway?

We look at some of our biggest assumptions - those around who we are, around identity. Commonly those that cause us the most pain.

The Experience

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents.
