About the Course

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme 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. 

The online course consists of eight, 2-hour sessions and a half-day retreat. Through guided meditations, group dialogue, individually tailored instructions and home assignments, you will learn the essential principles of mindfulness and techniques to build your personal home practice and access the wide-ranging benefits well beyond the course.  

The key learning points include:

  • A variety of formal and informal mindfulness meditation practices, which involve 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 that we are better able to pause in challenging situations and manage our responses more effectively.
  • Recognising the patterns of worrying and self-criticism that often generate more stress; and learning to relate to ourselves with a more accepting and kind stance.
  • Learning to have more mindful, and thus meaningful, communication, connections and relationships.
  • Developing practical self-care tools to help us thrive, perform at our best, and build resilience.

Course Materials

  • A detailed electronic version of our 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.
Online Format
Our experience in running exclusively online programs is that this medium offers an opportunity to have a rich and meaningful connection with the practices and group, from the convenience and comfort of your own space. This online fomat offers the same practices, exercises, teacher and small group, just as you would in our regular space.

Mindfulness can be a wonderful tool for coping with the stress, anxiety and uncertainty of these challenging circumstances, so we hope that offering the courses and keeping them accessible at this time will be particularly helpful.
