About the Event
This 6 – week programme is a taster of the full MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) Course. The course is suitable for those with prior meditation experience as well as those who have none. It introduces participants to different forms of mindfulness practice including sitting meditation, body awareness and gentle mindful movement. The classes also explore what we mean by the term ‘stress’, how it manifests in our lives and how mindfulness can support us in responding to it. As the emphasis is on bringing mindful awareness into everyday life, a commitment to daily home practice of thirty to forty minutes is required.
Research has shown that committed participation in a mindfulness course can have lasting positive effects on health and well-being.
The course includes 6 x 2-hour classes, recordings of mindfulness practices and a hardcopy course workbook.
