Mindful Awareness Training
Distraction is the dominant condition of 21st-century living – which impacts on your ability to focus, solve problems, and retain information. The good news? The capacity to manage your attention can be learned (or, in the case of those of us who remember black and white TV, re-learned). Bloom Mindful Awareness Training (BMAT) is a secular mind training program which responds to the mental demands of high technology work and home environments.
Evaluations show the following benefits of mindful awareness training:
Mindful awareness is a simple technique support by neuroscience and originally drawn from the Buddhist mindfulness tradition. It reduces stress in the digital age by growing the capacity to focus, strengthening the ability to sustain attention on one thing, and cultivating a “meta” awareness that will help you prioritise from choice, rather than from a state of overwhelm or busy-ness.
Bloom Mindful Awareness Training is taught by Bloom Principal, Jacqueline Jago, who has studied Buddhist meditation, including mindfulness, since 1996. Jacqueline continues in training in the Soto Zen school with Rev. Steve Weintraub at San Francisco Zen Center. Please contact Jacqueline here to discuss your individual or group training needs.
