Mindfulness can provide a valuable grounding, calming practice, but there are many layers to explore. The 8-week ‘Mindfulness for Life’ course is an opportunity to practice mindfulness meditation in a supportive small group. The course also explores the psychology underpinning mindfulness-based approaches, and how this supports meaningful change in our lives.
Practising mindfulness regularly can help us cope better with the challenges of life, such as stress, low mood, anxiety, and pain.
Mindfulness also supports the growth of resilience and self-compassion, enabling us to live with greater balance and ease.
Previous course participants have said:
“You have given me a new approach to help me understand my thoughts better, and manage emotions, to help me deal with the difficulties.”
“Truly life changing experience.”
“I have learnt so much about myself.”
We trained to teach Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy at the world-renowned Oxford Mindfulness Centre, having experienced the benefits of the course in our own lives, and are passionate about sharing mindfulness-based ‘skills for life’ with integrity, supported by our own practice. We are both registered teachers with the UK Network of Mindfulness Teachers (now renamed as BAMBA), and adhere to their good practice guidelines (www.bamba.org.uk).
