‘Wherever you are, be there totally.”

Eckhart Tolle

 

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.

If you have completed our entry level Introduction to Mindfulness – Part A and are looking to take
your skills to the next level, this course is for you.

Mindfulness practice will help you to:

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

I truly enjoyed the Mindfulness course. It has a beautiful balance of theory on the brain and hands on exercises. I felt calm and refuelled after each class, as well as equipped with effective exercises. I recommend this course with confidence.

Sheetal Patel, local GP

This course taught me a lot about how the brain works. It has taught me how I can stay calm, even during the busy and stressful days. I now feel more confident and in control, This has made me a happier and more patient person and mum.

A mindful way of perceiving and relating to difficult experiences has helped in my journey with depression. I came to meditation around 15 years ago, when stuck in a two-and-a half year depressive trough. I had thrown myself in desperation at various treatments, but mindfulness offered something different. The method itself meant practicing acceptance, just the opposite of what I was used to. This marked the beginning of a transformation—a recognition that the way I was approaching the “problem” of depression actually helped perpetuate it. Through meditation, I learned to see how my attitude and behaviour, characterized by self-critical striving and resistance, was a significant factor in how I felt. Mindfulness offered a gentler way, and I learned how to be kind to myself, even—especially—when feeling stressed.
