Semester Two Mindfulness Courses

Two free Mindfulness courses, Introduction to Mindfulness and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, are running during Semester Two.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

This eight week course teaches practical skills that can help with physical and psychological health problems and the challenges of everyday life.

Using a combination of meditation, body awareness and teachings on stress to diminish the tendency of the mind to rule us through impulse and habits, you will learn to make choices that are more conscious and less reactive, becoming more understanding and responsive in your relationships with others and calmer.

The majority of people completing the programme report lasting physical and psychological benefits including:

  • an increased ability to relax
  • greater energy and enthusiasm for life
  • heightened self-confidence
  • an increased ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations

This is an in-depth, experiential, eight week course, taught by two experienced mindfulness teachers in which you will develop a daily mindfulness practice.

The course consists of eight weekly two-hour sessions, plus a five-hour ‘retreat’ in week six when participants have the opportunity to experience the benefits of a day of mindfulness practice.

The Course will be facilitated by Amanda James and Nicola Peacock who are both accredited therapists and have been teaching mindfulness to students at the University of Bath for the past two years.

Dates and times

The course takes place every Tuesday from 11 February 2020 to 31 March 2020 from 5.15pm to 7.15pm plus a retreat day on Saturday 21 March from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
