Our 8 week Mindfulness or Mindful Self-Compassion courses are open to all, and will introduce you to an approach that reduces stress, is clinically proven to reduce depressive relapse, helps you manage chronic pain and will support you in finding more peace at work, at home and in your relationships. Whatever the issue that brings you to mindfulness, we are experts in mindfulness for a lifetime, not just a one off quick fix.
Our range of courses are designed to meet the needs of beginners as well as experienced practitioners of mindfulness meditation. We offer an on going community for graduates, so that once the course is over you can continue to be supported and encouraged by others – whether at monthly Top Ups, other courses or residential retreats. The strength of our graduate community represents the value and accessibility of our approach.
The 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course (MBSR) is an excellent way to gain a solid foundation in mindfulness. You will learn a range of meditation and awareness practices, that can be integrated into your daily life. The course we teach follows the program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn (see clip below) as well as some aspects of the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy programme (MBCT) developed by Williams, Teasdale and Segal in the UK. The eight week model is carefully devised and has been clinically proven to be highly effective in working with a range of physical and psychological problems.
