Buddhist monk, Gelong Thubten has spent the weekend in Jersey teaching a series of mindfulness meditation workshops.
The practice has become somewhat of a 'buzz word' in recent years and is now used among medical professionals as a non-drug treatment for conditions such as anxiety, depression and stress.
So what is mindfulness?
Thubten has been a monk since 1993. He has taught mindfulness to companies such as Google, Morrisons and the NHS.
Thubten became a monk after experiencing stress during his 20s.
Good mental wellbeing is about more than just avoiding mental health problems. It also means feeling good and functioning well.
Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to, and seeing clearly whatever is happening in our lives. It will not eliminate lifes pressures, but it can help us respond to them in a calmer manner. It helps to reduce stress as well as to develop more focus and mental clarity.
