Amber teaches Mindfulness as she believes it is a skill we can learn that can enable us to live our lives more fully, with more presence, kindness and compassion. She does not see it as a tool to 'fix' ourselves but more as a means to connect with our authentic selves. It doesn't stop us being human with all the challenges and joys this brings!
Amber feels that the Mindful Self Compassion tools can help provide a pathway to explore safely ways to meet ourselves more fully with kindness, gentleness and compassion. Often something that we don't do very willingly or easily! It can, she believes also enable us to bring these same qualities to those whom we share our lives with; family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. She says learning these skills is both an adventure and a journey. It's a win win experiment! Why wouldn't you give it a go.....?
