Aims of the Course.

This course is an opportunity to either introduce or refresh your understanding of Mindfulness in your life and help you to understand how Mindfulness supports resilience. There will be opportunities for guided practice.

Learning Goals (by the end of the course you will be able to)

  • Increase your relaxation and daily awareness, by directly experiencing simple Mindful meditation practices and practising these at home
  • Identify how our brains can hold us back by running on autopilot and examine habit formation
  • Rediscover our senses and the information we take from them
  • Reflect on how our own daily Mindful practice helps us with problem solving and decision making, by keeping a simple journal
  • Review and discuss examples of everyday Mindfulness from other people’s lives
  • Identify opportunities to be Mindful.

About the Course
Allows you to create space  to explore, practice and reflect  using Mindfulness as a tool to help reduce anxiety and stress, and enhance creativity and resilience in everyday life.

Mindfulness is not therapy and you don’t need any previous experience, equipment or special clothes. You will be expected to practice being mindful as homework to build up knowledge and awareness of being mindful.
Beginner or experienced, this course is an opportunity to learn through guided practice about Mindful meditation and other exercises, and to understand the true meaning and value of Mindful awareness as a way of being in everyday life.

It is advisable to bring a bottle of drinking water with you.

Attendance is expected at each session to ensure that you get the most out of your learning experience and to minimise disruption for other learners. Please advise the venue/tutor of any absence you may have.
