8 week Mindfulness Course

This group course is based upon the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Course (MBCT) developed by Oxford Mindfulness Centre. 

Each session runs for 2 hours via Zoom to allow plenty of time for practice and discussion.  An important part of the course is the home practice. There are two pathways through the home practice, one requires 20 minutes practice per day and the other requires 40-60 minutes of practice each day.

 

The course covers all of the skills you need to develop your own mindfulness practice.  It teaches simple meditation techniques and follows themes to explore habitual patterns of thought and behaviour.  The structure of the course leads participants step-by-step so that strong and flexible understanding and skills can build week on week.  Weekly notes and audio recordings and also provided.

Cost £180 per person (online course)

There is one subsidised place per course.  Please enquire

'As for the Zoom format, I liked it'

 

'I really enjoyed it. I think the pace was good, the gradual development of the ideas making sense. And when I was able to do consistent home practice, I really did begin to feel a difference in how calm I felt, generally speaking.'

'I don't know what to do with myself on Wednesday mornings, now, and I miss our little group!'
