This 5-week course is an adaptation of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme. The course teaches various awareness strategies: mindfulness of breath, body awareness (including body in movement), energy practices and self as context.
The 5-week programme enables participants to become more familiar with the workings of the mind whilst paying attention to objects of awareness intentionally, in the present moment in a non-judgemental fashion. However, for most participants follow-up or maintenance sessions are essential in maintaining gains made during the 5 weeks. These will take place at the start and end of the year.
The course takes the form of five weekly 2 hours practise sessions. Pre-workshop media (including a set of handouts and links) will be emailed to participants in order that they are well equipped for the forthcoming practises.
Outside of the weekly sessions, students are required to engage in formal practise for a minimum of 45 minutes each day. In addition, informal practice involving moment to moment monitoring of internal and external happenings is required. This commitment is necessary and gives participants the best chance of bringing enhances well-being in daily life.
Participants share experiences (if they so wish) with the facilitator at the end of each session (or via email), so that they may be supported and guided in their mindfulness training.
A certificate of attendance will be issued to all participants who complete the course.
