Do you often experience stress, feeling overwhelmed with anxiety?
Would you like to find creative and effective ways of dealing with life’s inevitable challenges?
Learning mindfulness is really about learning to be fully awake in our lives. The 8-week MBSR programme is a practical and experiential introduction to a variety of mindfulness practices. We will look at various ways in which mindfulness can be incorporated into daily life: how it can help us to appreciate what is already here; how it can help us to respond wisely when we are faced with difficult experiences; how it can help us to navigate our emotions; how it can help us to communicate more effectively and ultimately how it can help us to take better care of ourselves. We can learn how to live mindfully.
The MBSR programme was developed by John Kabat Zinn over 40 years ago and has a very extensive evidence base. It has been shown to be particularly helpful for people dealing with stress and anxiety.
