6 Week Mindfulness for Wellbeing Course
An ideal way to begin practicing mindfulness. During this highly practical 6 week course, you will learn the basic evidence-based techniques of mindfulness in a small group (approximately 6 people). We explore techniques that you can apply to enhance all aspects of your daily life. These include formal meditation, mindful movement, short techniques to bring mindfulness into everyday life & exercises to help you cope with difficult situations. We also discuss the scientific research behind the benefits of regular mindfulness practice. Developing compassion for ourselves & others is also an important part of the course. This element is a powerful addition to mindfulness & can enhance all areas of our lives.
The course contains the following key mindfulness techniques:-
* Mindfulness of the Breath
* Body Scan Meditation
* Mindful Movement
* Loving-Kindness Meditation
* Self Compassion Meditation
* Everyday mindfulness
* Short coping exercises to help you respond more skilfully in difficult situations
As group sizes are kept small, the course can be tailored to suit the individual needs of participants. Students are guided to establish their own regular mindfulness practice & have the opportunity to discuss & reflect on their experiences after each practice. It can be very beneficial & reassuring to learn mindfulness as part of a supportive group.
There will be the opportunity to join a Monthly Mindfulness Evening to keep you inspired to continue your practice & to help you to keep in touch with the growing mindfulness community.
I also offer this course to individuals or small groups, locally or over Skype.
