What is it?
These relaxation workshops provide an excellent opportunity to take time to relax. Through the four weeks will introduce some basic principles from Mindfulness during the course.
Mindfulness can be seen as a state in which one is highly aware and focused on the reality of the present moment, accepting and acknowledging it, without getting caught up in thoughts that are about the situation or in emotional reactions to the situation. It aims to teach people to approach stressful situations ‘mindfully’ so they may respond to the situation instead of automatically reacting to it.
This 4 week course provides an opportunity to learn some relaxation techniques and discover a little about living life ‘Mindfully’.
