A Level 1 Insight Introductory Course

introduction to mindfulness | part a

Mindfulness is a scientifically proven method of caring for one of our most valuable assets, our mind. It is a powerful tool for reducing stress, anxiety and depressive symptoms. On average, we spend 47% of our day lost in thought, thinking about the pressures of work, the stress of raising a healthy family, dreaming about things in the future, or ruminating about regrets of the past. Mindfulness enables us to be present to the moment.

mindfulness practice will help you to:

  • Manage stress
  • Learn how to reshape your thoughts away from criticism and judgment
  • Learn how to manage emotions more effectively
  • Be more present to others, resolve conflict, and enjoy more satisfying relationships
  • Improve heart rate variability and reduce heart disease risk
  • Develop your ‘flow’

My cousin Debbie went to one of these. Will I be required to talk about my personal experiences like she did in her class?

We work with our attendees to create a safe and supportive environment to faciliate anyone talking about their personal expriences if they want to. But no one will be required to share anything they are not comfortable with.

I’m wanting to attend this course as part of my professional development programme. Do you provide any proof of attendance or certificate of completion that I can provide to my employers?

Yes we do provide certificates to all of our attendees who complete our courses. These are also required for attendance to our level two and upwards classes.

what people have to say

“I thoroughly enjoyed the training presented and found the theory and techniques very useful in broadening my professional
practice, as well as enriching my everyday life. I would highly recommend it to professionals working in the helping
professions or anyone with an interest in personal growth and development.”
LINEE, Clinical Psychologist
“It has been fascinating to learn about how the brain functions under stress, how this relates to an individual’s past and how it can be ‘reset’ to enable more positive outcomes for the future. Learning how to engage in the present moment instead of living in fear of the uncertainties ahead is a must, for any individual”
Deb, Graphic Designer
“The course is thoughtfully put together and beautifully presented. The trainers are wonderfully welcoming, sensitive and knowledgeable. They deliver the content in a manner that brings research and theory to life. I gained so much that I have been able to implement both personally and within my work. I recommend this training without hesitation. Go for it.”
