  • Finding Peace in a Frantic World Course

The six-week Finding Peace in a Frantic World Course offers a general introduction to mindfulness for those that may not have the time to complete a full MBSR or MBCT course. The course is based on the traditional MBSR/MBCT with the key learning points and practices distilled into a shorter format.

The course consists of six, hour-and-a-half sessions and includes 20 minutes of home practice per day between each session.

Through guided meditation, group discussion and home practice, you will learn the essential principles of mindfulness. You will also gain access to wide-ranging benefits to support yourself well beyond the course.

The key learning points include:

  • A variety of mindfulness meditation practices, using the breath and body as a focus for being aware of our experience in the present moment;
  • Understanding the physiology of stress and how to self-regulate our moods, so we are better able to pause in challenging situations and manage our responses.
  • Recognising the patterns of worry and self-criticism that often generate stress; and how we can relate to ourselves with a more accepting and kind stance.
  • Learning to have more mindful communication, connections and relationships.
  • Developing practical self-care tools to help us thrive, perform at our best, and build resilience.

The structure of the course will follow the outline of the bestselling book 'Mindfulness: A Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World', co-authored by Mark Williams - the leading mindfulness researcher in the UK and co-founder of the MBCT programme.
