Mindfulness training

The training intends for you to develop the skills and strength to be able to: calm your mind and reduce stress, boost your concentration and focus, improve your decision making, enhance your relationships

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness training is learning to be aware and present, in a curious, non-judgmental way, with whatever experiences we are having.

This may be different to how we often live our lives; with our minds elsewhere, caught up in what has already happened or may be to come.

With practice we can develop an inner resilience, flexibility and creativity, which can stay with us through our day.

About the course

We will follow an 8-week evidence-based curriculum, with eight sessions of 1.1/4 hours long.

The course is largely experiential with a range of mindfulness practices which we will explore and reflect upon.

There are also scenarios, presentations and activities because mindfulness can only truly be learnt experientially.

The emphasis will be on practical exercises and first-hand experience rather than didactic teaching.
