Mindfulness is a way of staying in the moment and developing a kind and non-judgemental awareness to ourselves and our surroundings. It helps us see clearly what is going on in our lives. It is not about trying to change the way things are but about accepting things as they are - the pleasant and the unpleasant - and being able to respond to life's ups and downs with greater freedom.
Through guided meditation, group discussion, experiential activities and supported home practice you will be introduced to a number of simple yet powerful mindfulness practices by an experienced Breathworks Accredited Teacher. Most people completing the course report a boost in psychological and physical well-being and find new sources of resilience, joy, kindness and calm to cope better with the stresses and strains of daily life.
On this course you will receive:
20 hours contact time
The award-winning Mindfulness for Health course book
Breathworks' Mindfulness for Health practice booklet
Four guided meditation CDs
Access to further guided meditations online
Weekly emails during the course
Suitability and booking
The course is open to all. However, although mindfulness is an effective practice it may not be appropriate for everybody and the course cannot substitute for medical advice or professional treatment.
Once you have booked on to a course, final confirmation will be subject to completion of a short questionnaire and an informal discussion with your course leader about the course's suitability for you at this time. The questions will ask you for a bit more information about yourself, any specific condition that brings you to the course and your motivation. This will help you and the course leader explore how best to support your process over the 8-weeks. If it is decided that the course is not suitable at this stage a full refund will be offered.
