Studies worldwide show a significant improvement in the symptoms of recurrent depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and stress as a result of mindfulness practice.
Mindfulness practice teaches us how to become aware of what is happening in the present, on a moment to moment basis, instead of living our lives on autopilot.
This course will draw on Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy and will offer the opportunity to engage in a range of mindfulness practices and (secular) meditation.
Please note that you will be asked to do the practices for about 45 minutes each day during the course. This means you will finish the course with a new skill that will add many benefits to your life.
Dates: Every Thursday from 28th May to 16th July inclusive
Times 5.30 pm – 7.30pm.
Full day of practice: Saturday 4th July, 10am-3pm
Suitable for complete beginners or anyone wanting to learn how to practise mindfulness. It is not suitable for individuals currently experiencing severe depression, dissociation or psychosis.
