CPD Connect Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction - 8 week course

Mindfulness is a healthy sustainable way to manage stress. Research suggests that mindfulness has a powerful and positive effect on health and well-being across a wide range of physical and mental health conditions.

What is mindfulness?
“Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in a particular way, without judgment”. (Jon Kabat-Zinn)
Paying attention can help us become aware of our stress responses and tap into our inner resources to take better care of ourselves in terms of:
· managing anxiety
· sharpening focus
· increasing productivity
· improving sleep
· relieving pain
· feeling a deeper sense of calm

Course includes:
· 8 weekly 2 hour group sessions
· learning mindfulness practices such as body scan, sitting with the breath and mindful movement
· over the course of the 8 weeks core mindfulness skills are progressively developed
· the course is experiential - based on skills development, group discussion and home-based practice (30 minutes a day)
· course material/practice CDs for home use are provided.
