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 is suitable for postgraduate students or students who have completed the six week introductory course and would welcome a deeper exploration of mindfulness.
Before participating on this course you will be invited to attend an initial orientation session which will establish whether this is the right course for you at this moment in time.
