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
• 8 weekly 2½ 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
• course manual and links to material for home use are provided
Each session starts promptly at 7pm and there is no facility to allow access for latecomers. Please consider your travel time realistically before booking this course.
