This certificated course is an introduction to mindfulness practices; no prior experience is necessary and for those who already have their own practice this course would be a good way of reconnecting with the foundations of mindfulness. This 8 week MBSR course is recognised as a valid starting point for further mindfulness training with the main mindfulness centres at Bangor, Exeter and Oxford universities as well as other further mindfulness training providers such as the Mindfulness in Schools Project.
I am on the UK Mindfulness Teacher Network list and teach to the Good Practice guidelines.
Mindfulness has been proven to help reduce stress and anxiety and improve the quality of your life. It can enhance your life by teaching you how to appreciate the here and now rather than being caught up in thinking about the past or the future.

The course will run from Monday 26th September 2016 until Monday 21st November, 2016 with a break for half term week (so no session on Monday 24th October).
It will take place at The Complete Wellness Centre in Uppingham on Monday evenings from 6.30-8.30pm and there will be an orientation session on Monday 19th September at 7pm to meet everybody and familiarise yourself with the venue. There will also be a practice day at Great Oakley village hall on Saturday 12th November from 11am until 4pm.
The sessions will be a mixture of learning mindfulness practices, formal and informal, paired or group discussion about your experiences and practical exercises. Each week you will be given home practices to do, these are an essential part of the course so a commitment to practising at home is important.
