I will guide you through an 8 week Mindfulness course, which includes both “formal” and “informal” meditation practices, designed to help participants cultivate a skill we all have: present moment awareness. This is a useful tool you can carry with you long after the course has finished.
The course structure is fluid but broadly is as follows:
Week 1: Introducing Mindfulness
Week 2: Exploring our Perceptions and our Relationship to Stress
Week 3: Being Fully Present – Breath and Movement Awareness
Week 4: What is Stress and How do we Respond to it?
Week 5: Responding More Effectively to Stress
Week 6: Mindfulness and Communication
Silent Practice Morning: An opportunity for a longer period of practice and reflection in silence
Week 7: Taking Better Care of Ourselves
Week 8: Your Mindfulness Beyond Week 8 – Keeping it Going
