Our mindfulness for stress programme consists of eight two-hour group sessions, where there will be guided mindfulness practice and theoretical teachings. Each week participants are taught a number of different mindfulness meditation practices that can be incorporated into daily life to reduce stress and aid general well-being. The course is founded on practice-based research and combines key elements of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
Between sessions you will practice at home by using the CD's that will be given at week one, we estimate that the home practice will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes per day. The home practice forms an important part of the programme and there will be an opportunity in each session to talk about your experiences of these practices.
