Awareness/Mindfulness

Anthony de Mello
The only way someone can be of help to you is in challenging your ideas. If you're ready to listen and if you're ready to be challenged, there's one thing that you can do, but no one can help you. What is this most important thing of all? It's called self-observation.
Anthony de Mello
What you are aware of you are in control of; what you are not aware of is in control of you. You are always a slave to what you’re not aware of. When you’re aware of it, you’re free from it. It’s there, but you’re not affected by it. You’re not controlled by it; you’re not enslaved by it.
Anthony de Mello
All suffering is caused by my identifying myself with something, whether that something is within me or outside of me.

Awareness is seeing reality with open eyes, unimpeded by judgments and unrestrained by fears. It goes without saying that seeing this way is the most arduous thing we can do because there are too many obstacles to seeing and too many habits that help us avoid seeing. It is beneficial to practise mindfulness so that we can experience Awareness; just as we have to look in order to see.

Dr. Francis started the practice at a young age and later started teaching Awareness / Mindfulness internationally.

Instead of limiting himself to teaching Mindfulness Meditations, or limiting its use to stress reduction and relaxation, his focus has always been to bring it into our bodies, our work, communications, relationships, in short every aspect of our life.

Realising how the of integration of Awareness/Mindfulness with the tools of psychology has amazing transformative power, he builds it seamlessly into his psychotherapy sessions and one-to-one coaching sessions. Having witnessed the changes people experience he has brought it into his workshops, seminars and retreats as well as his work with companies.

I feel good because the world is right. Wrong! The world is right because I feel good. You cannot see outside of you what you fail to see inside.
