You will be guided through an 8 week Mindfulness course, which includes both “formal” and “informal” meditation practices, designed to help you cultivate a skill we all have: present moment awareness. This course can help you to respond more effectively to stress, anxiety and pain helping you to learn skills you can carry with you long after the course has ended.
The 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
