Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (Online Course) – an 8-week programme facilitated by Barry Lee. This course starts on Wednesday the 16th of September and runs until Wednesday the 4th of November. The course costs €350, (concessions available). Classes will take place on Wednesday evenings from 7.00 pm – 9.30 pm. There will be a full day of practice on Saturday the 17th of October from 10 am – 4 pm.

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.

Participants will receive a handbook and links to a variety of audio practices. They will be encouraged to work with them at home. This course will be delivered online via Zoom. Numbers are limited to ensure an interactive and intimate experience.
The course costs €350 but a number of concessions are available if money is an obstacle right now. A deposit of €100 is payable to book your place. You will then have a chat with Barry where you will have an opportunity to ask any questions. If after that you decide for whatever reason that the course is not for you, you will receive a full refund of your deposit.
After discovering the powerful benefits of mindfulness I decided to give up my career as a solicitor and devote myself full time to training and teaching mindfulness and yoga. I am fully qualified in both disciplines. I currently work with a variety of different groups including organisations in the corporate sector, universities, not for profit organisations and schools.
