Mindfulness in Daily Life

Create balance and a sense of ease in your busy mind and busy life by introducing Mindfulness. Simplicity is the key with Sui Mindfulness.


Through Mindfulness we learn how to replace the 'worry' habit that we may have spent a life-time practising with the new habit of 'letting go' and 'coming back' to present moment awareness. The Suí course includes simple mindfulness practices, relaxation, visualization techniques, and more. Sui Mindfulness is the common sense approach to anxiety, the perfect anti-dote to stress.Suí Mindfulness has been endorsed by the medical profession and other health-care professionals. Sui Mindfulness is ‘something that can help heal your life’ (Bernie Seigel, MD and author).


Derval has been facilitating regular 3 week evening Sui Mindfulness courses in the West for several years. She has trained in teaching Jon Kabat-Zinn’s programme MBSR (Mindfulness based stress reduction), at the University of Bangor, Wales and the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMASS). Sui Mindfulness & Relaxation courses run from Jan to June.

Mindfulness at Work

Stress reduction in the work place

Mindfulness at Work offers an opportunity to workers and employees to learn the technique of mindfulness to enhance their personal and professional lives. It is a way of paying attention to whatever arises from moment to moment, in yourself, others and the world around you. Its practice is well proven to respond to the ravages of stress, anxiety, burnout, depression and a variety of illnesses. It has the capacity to enhance the body, mind, heart and spirit. Research has indicated that people who are mindful enjoy more satisfying relationships, have better communication, have improved attention, job performance, productivity and job satisfaction with a sense of control of their own behaviour are less likely to experience psychological distress, and have higher self esteem. Throughout the six weeks participants will be introduced to simple techniques that assist in the maintenance of peak performance, calm perspective and focussed attention with a sense of kindness and curiosity
