Mindfulness and Noble Silence are very important tools in our program.
Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to the internal and external experience occurring in the present moment large population based research studies have indicated that the practice of mindfulness is strongly correlated with well being and perceived health. Stop Smoking Holidays introduce a number of therapeutic applications based on mindfulness for helping people with depression, addiction, cravings. Mindfulness has also gained worldwide popularity as a distinctive method to handle emotions.
Be Mindful. Be Grateful. Be Positive. Be True. Be Kind.
The practice of Noble Silence is a mandatory rule in Stop Smoking Holidays from Monday to Sunday, starting 10pm evening and finishing at 8am mornings. It allows the practice of conscious breathing to become deep and effective. Like still water that reflects things as they are, the calming silence helps us to see things more clearly and therefore to be in a deeper contact with ourselves and those around us. Although we do not speak,we can still acknowledge the presence of others with a smile or a bow.
Silence is Golden.
