Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction - online summer course

This eight-week course teaches mindfulness skills to help you deal with with stress and anxiety, depression, physical pain and other challenges of daily life.

This eight-week online course combines meditation, body awareness and teachings to help diminish the tendency of the mind to react in unhelpful ways. During the course, you will establish a daily mindfulness practice as the basis for learning to respond more consciously to life and the challenges it brings.

Most people finishing the course report lasting benefits including:

  • increased capacity to relax and stay calm
  • greater energy and enthusiasm
  • improved ability to cope with short and long-term stressors
  • better relationships.

This evidence-based course is taught by two experienced therapists and mindfulness teachers, Amanda James and Nicola Peacock.
