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?
