Event description

Description

Are you suffering from high level stress, pain or other health challenges?
Are you an excessive worrier or suffer form lower mood or depression?
Do you want to learn to let go of judgment of yourself and others, be more compassionate and kind toward yourself, family, friends and co-workers?

While short bursts of pressure can help us to rise to meet a challenge, a long term stress can have a major impact on our physical and mental health. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) aims to address prolonged periods of stress, which can lead to poor mental and physical health.

What is it?
MBSR is a secular group based programme developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn (PhD) and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre in the 1970s to alleviate a wide range of health problems. The programme involves training in mindfulness meditation together with discussion on stress and life skills. Particular emphasis is placed upon daily home practice.

Is it for me?
Yes! Everyone can benefit from mindfulness. We all face pressures and stresses and can get stuck in our personal reactions. The things that stress and challenge us may not change, but the way in which we deal with them can shift, making it all feel easier. Being more aware and accepting of our thoughts and feelings means we are in a better place to make wise choices and deal with difficulties more effectively.
The evidence base on MBSR shows significant positive effects amongst participants suffering from chronic pain, fibromyalgia, MS, mild anxiety disorder, psoriasis and cancer. More than 100 papers have been written which indicate that the effects of MBSR are relatively long lasting especially if post course group practice is also offered.

Free Orientation Session:

If you want to know more please come to one of free introduction sessions: 18/7 or 22/8/2018 at 19.00- 20.15 in Aquariana.
At the orientation session you will learn more about the program, meet the instructor, see the place and explore whether the program is right for you and if it's a good fit. You will be given a flavour of some of the practices, and a short introduction to mindfulness and the science behind it.
