Come along to this course to be introduced to the simplicity of what Mindfulness can offer you in your life. There is ever-growing interest in Mindfulness and its uses and benefits in helping people self-manage many life conditions like anxiety, stress, depression, pain or illness.
However Mindfulness can help all of us live in a more fulfilled and chosen way, rather than existing on 'autopilot'. We often feel we’re constantly chasing our tails, feeling anxious or stressed, or struggling with familiar but challenging behaviour patterns. Sadly this seems to be the norm in 21st century Western living. Regular mindfulness meditation and using mindfulness in everyday life offers us more choice and spaciousness in our so-often frazzled minds . . .
This course is a mixture of both experiential and theoretical mindfulness, drawing on core Mindfulness theory and practice.
It will take place in Northenden on Wednesday evenings between 7pm and 9.30pm.
A certificate of attendance will be given to everyone fully attending the course.
The Mindfulness training will involve teaching of the work of the American Jon Kabat-Zinn who’s credited with developing secular Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) from Eastern philosophy and practices. It will also include aspects of the work of the British Professor and Clinical Psychologist Mark Williams, who’s developed Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) with other professionals to primarily deal with depression and low mood.
We will explore all the fundamental ingredients of Mindfulness practice. Training includes breath work, sitting meditations, body scan meditations, mindful movement, body work and teachings about theory and principles of mindfulness.
There will be plenty of opportunity to apply teachings and experiential meditations to make a real difference to your everyday life, and to help you set up a daily mindfulness practice. You will be encouraged to do regular practice between sessions at home with the opportunity to have email contact with Aileen, your trainer, and others on the course between sessions.
This course is open to both beginners and to people who have already meditated in other settings. We bring the attitude to mindfulness that everyone is a ‘beginner’ including teachers of mindfulness . . . Mindfulness-based practices are increasingly accepted by medical and other caring professions as an important way to help people manage their lives better with choice and purpose, particularly if experiencing conditions like stress, anxiety, depression, pain or illness. Most people experience some level of daily stress or anxiety in their lives even if they wouldn’t describe themselves as being stressed or depressed.
Everyone can benefit from mindfulness techniques in their lives.
