Finding Joy in the Journey – MY Journey

For me personally, it wasn’t until my late 40s that I began to understand my place in this world and to heal from my past using mindfulness – a childhood hugely disrupted by multiple abandonments, childhood emotional neglect (CEN), the effects this had on my childhood and the cumulative effects all this had on my behaviours as an adult.

Throughout my adult life, I was seeking that ever elusive ‘peace of mind’ and sense of contentment (always trying to scratch an itch that just wasn’t there) and I was trying to numb the emotional pains of depression, low self-esteem, anger along with that deadly sense of emptiness and feeling incomplete.

Your Mindful Journey

After experiencing the impact that mindfulness had on my own life and using mindfulness in a professional capacity to help hundreds of others, I am now reaching out further with my program, Your Mindful Journey. This 8-week, online program can help with anxiety, emotions, thoughts, behaviours and relationship issues and this success is based upon the fact that:

  • Regardless of a participant’s efforts and time commitment to this program, value is achievable.
  • There is only one module per week with no information overload.
  • Support is provided throughout the program and beyond.

Your Mindful Journey is beneficial to both those who are new to mindfulness and those who wish to further enhance their practice. This program is suitable for anyone wanting to begin, or continue, their personal journey to better regulated and more accepting emotional states and sense of wellbeing.


Heartfelt thanks to Bob for this fabulous course. It has helped me tremendously – guiding me step by step into a much calmer, more aware and less judgemental state of being – bliss! Each module seamlessly supports the last and prepares for the next. The comprehensive content is excellently written and easy to understand. The practical steps are both enjoyable and simple to incorporate into daily life. Bob’s compassion and wealth of knowledge is ever present and the daily emails and quotes are both uplifting and inspiring. Greater emotional stability has certainly been achieved here! I recommend this course to everybody. Living such a hectic life, it’s so easy to get lost. This course has brought me home to what is now, what is real and the things that truly matter. Thank you so much! – Penni

Find Joy in the Journey – YOUR Journey

Sometimes we begin exhibiting unhealthy or regretful behaviours – when at other times we can be reasoned and rational. This is emotional dysregulation which can then lead us to the ‘garden of numb’ (via alcohol or drugs) in order to ‘cope’. The good news is that all our experiences can be re-learned!

Join me to learn how all your current beliefs, and emotional triggers, can be available for a smarter and more compassionate inspection and exploration. To be available for this, you must reset and start over again – and address that which no longer serves you. This will then enable you to:

  • become an authority on YOU
  • free yourself and enjoy ‘Being’
  • embrace acceptance for the here and now
  • grow your self-awareness and attention
  • build compassion for yourself and others
  • learn to judge ‘less’ and make truly empowered choices

 

Greater emotional stability? Who wouldn’t want that? For years I have struggled with personal ‘hang ups’ (e.g. an irrational fear of death, overreacting to certain situations) and because of certain chronic health conditions, an inability to view my own worth to myself or others. Having gone through this material, I see what all my worries are doing to me. My own thinking was having an unstable effect on my life. I indeed needed to focus on the NOW, the moment as it truly is. So, is this program a magical pill to cure all? Not at all if you read and walk away! Years ago, I did a cognitive behaviour course. I had no idea what it was meant to do for me other than me recanting my various issues and coming away each week feeling more anxious and upset. For 6 weeks, I just unloaded and no one ever gave me any feedback. This course is different in the way it helps you understand yourself and how you think and act. Thought provoking daily quotes keep each module in your thoughts and the exercises give you further help. For the FIRST time, I understand how being mindful can give greater emotional stability and this journey is one of the most exciting I have ever taken. – John

Program Curriculum

Week 1: Attention and the Now

Attention is the most fundamental building block of change and insight. Attention ensures that we are aware as if we are not aware of something, we cannot change it. In the first week, we will explore attention and look at:

  • what demands attention and what regulates attention
  • attention to the present moment
  • mental “tools” that cause emotional imbalance
  • the benefits of mindfulness and practice

Week 2: Automaticity

Automatisms keep us from changing; only by becoming aware of our automatisms, can we change them. In the second week we give attention to automatisms and look at:

  • automatic patterns and repetition
  • effecting change of automatism
  • emotions and impulses
  • cycles of feeling and thinking
  • the benefits of mindfulness and practice

Week 3: Judgement

We all automatically judge and it’s one of the automatisms we contend with daily; we judge others, situations/events and ourselves. By judging we often create an immediate conflict or struggle. In the third week, we give attention to judging and look at:

  • how judgement colours reality
  • judging both outwardly and inwardly
  • judgement and duality
  • limiting reality
  • conflict
  • the benefits of mindfulness and practice

Week 4: Acceptance

By adopting or accepting what is, we immediately free ourselves from the identification of our mind. In the fourth week, we explore the true meaning of acceptance and look at:

  • both pleasant and unpleasant experiences and/or situations
  • conflict and resistance
  • mindfulness of both the pleasant and unpleasant
  • the benefits of mindfulness and practice

Week 5: Goals

Goals are a crucial part of our society but by focusing too much on our goals, we lose attention to the here and now. In the fifth week, we give attention to goal making and explore:

  • the pitfalls
  • the ineffectiveness of over-focusing on goals
  • the discrepancy between goals and the present moment
  • both anxiety and illusions
  • gratitude
  • the benefits of mindfulness and practice

Week 6: Compassion

By increasing compassion for others and ourselves, the separation between us and others gets smaller. Compassion helps us to connect both to others and ourselves. In week six, we give attention to and explore:

  • compassion of both self and others
  • self-criticism and self-compassion
  • loving-kindness
  • troubleshooting
  • the benefits of mindfulness and practice

Week 7: The Ego

The term “ego” can be used to indicate a controlling part of the personality. In this context, the term ego refers to a self-image that is based on identification. It is, therefore, an invented identity. In the seventh week, we give attention to the ego and explore:

  • what the ego is, characteristics and identification
  • the factors that form our ego
  • fear and affirmation
  • controlling our identity and fear
  • the benefits of mindfulness, observation and practice

Week 8: Integration

Mindfulness is not something that you ‘achieve’ after 8 weeks; the more mindfulness is integrated into your daily life, the greater the impact will be. In the eighth week, we explore integration of mindfulness into our daily life and look at:

  • integrating attention, automatisms, judgement, acceptance, goals and compassion
  • how elements of mindfulness relate to each other
  • what’s next and practice

Once enrolled, you will be granted access to, and receive, the following during and after the program:

  • 8 science-based modules including support resources and references
  • beautiful uplifting daily quotes with images to keep
  • access to Your Mindful Journey secret Facebook group
  • live chat with program facilitator Bob Brotchie
  • technical support
  • a ‘Certificate of Completion’ at the end of the 8 weeks

How much are you wishing to invest in you?


If you wish to participate in my training program on a 1-1 basis (with myself) please contact me to discuss your requirements and packages available.

Please also feel free to contact me if you have any concerns about mindfulness practise and living with a suspected or a significant psychological diagnosis such as PTSD, bipolar, borderline personality disorder, schizoaffective disorder or psychosis disorder as bringing past experiences to the fore, along with the associated feelings and emotions, may be ‘triggering’. If you are in any doubt, I’d be happy to discuss (in confidence) and answer any questions you may have.
