Description

Akanista Mindfulness in partnership with Chaplaincy Multi-Faith Centre to Imperial College London

imperial college mindfulness

This course is for those who have completed introductory Akanista's 6 weeks Mindfulness Course Level I/II or any other 5-8-week MBSR/MBCT/Mindfuless-based courses and want to deepen self-compassion from authentic Buddhist meditation traditions.

You will practise and develop a regular practice with a group of like-minded individuals with careful guidance from experienced tutors - discussing, listening and sharing stories from famous Buddhist meditation teachers, like Ajahn Brahm, Thich Nhah Hanh and His Holiness Dalai Lama.

The core of Mindfulness practice is compassion and in this course you will learn to relate to yourself with understanding, kindness, empathy and gentleness. Understanding that common quality of being a human being means to be imperfect and that's okay. We must find perfection in our imperfections.

With mindfulness and self compassion you will learn to embrace yourself as you are with flaws and all. Allowing yourself to be without any harsh judgements, holding yourself with compassion enabling you to be resilient so you are able to bounce back from the challenges you face in life.

You will learn to:
Embrace yourself no matter what
Discard limiting beliefs
Be gentle with yourself
Befriend your mind
Find comfort in the discomfort
See yourself and others differently
Increase empathy and self-awareness
Be more loving to oneself and others
Accept change
