mindfulness for stress reduction

* Available online *

Mindfulness teaches us to find a place of stillness and stability in the midst of even the most difficult of circumstances. It enables us to make wiser choices and helps us to cultivate a kinder relationship with ourselves and others.

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf”     Jon Kabat-Zin

We learn to fully inhabit the present moment. Paying attention to our moment by moment experience, and gently turning away from unhelpful spirals of thinking. We become more able to appreciate what we have, rather than always wanting things to be different, and find healthier ways of being with what it is not possible to change.

Mindfulness has been widely researched, and is evidence based. It has been shown to help people cope with stressful situations, and to better manage anxiety and depression. It is also used in the treatment of physical challenges such as cancer and chronic pain.

In the free Online Introduction to Mindfulness course, simple Mindfulness practices are introduced, and strategies are discussed to help enrich our lives, and learn to navigate its inevitable stresses.

The course consists of four one hour sessions over a four week period.
It includes downloadable practices and handouts.

Dates for the next courses:
Starting Tuesday 11th May, 7-8pm.
