  • 8-Week Mindfulness Course

Mindfulness has been gathering much attention over recent years as a tried-and-tested method of reducing stress and anxiety. By helping us to focus our attention on the present moment and not get swept up in worrying or negative thoughts about the past or future, a regular practice can help us to:

  • learn to cope better with the pressures we're under;
  • recognise the thoughts and judgements we make, often subconsciously, that generate more stress;
  • find balance and a sense of calm.

About the course:

The MBSR is the most recognised and established mindfulness course, taught all over the world, and scientifically proven to help people cope better with stress, depression and anxiety. This eight-week life-skills course combines experiential mindfulness practices with the latest tools and techniques of neuroscience, psychology and the study of well-being. It will include mindfulness meditation practices, gentle stretching and movement, group dialogue and discussion, individually tailored instructions and home assignments. The course consists of eight, two-hour sessions. The full-day retreat will be uniquely designed as an exercise in incorporating mindfulness into the flow of life and will include a variety of guided practices, a silent lunch, an afternoon of meditation and a lovely afternoon tea to conclude.

Course Materials

  • A detailed course workbook, which will cover the theory of each session and provide details of the home practice;
  • Two sets of downloadable guided meditations (male/female voice) for the home practice;
  • Access to The Mindfulness Project app for easier access to the audio files and workbook;
  • The course teacher and administrators are also availiable for any urgent questions that come up between the sessions.
