Mindfulness meditation is the practice of cultivating non-judgemental attentiveness to life’s experiences,
connecting us to our natural sense of calm and peace. It encourages a state of moment to moment awareness.
Regular practice of simple exercises supports our capacity to slow down and live more fully in the present moment, while promoting psychological and physical wellbeing. Other benefits include increased ability to relax and manage stress, anxiety and burn out. It is a beneficial practice for people who experience fatigue andchronic pain, as well as for those who wish to awaken more to what life’s gifts. This is the first of a series of short courses dedicated to mindfulness, with a practical focus on integrating the skills into the context of normal daily life, with its joys,
demands and challenges.
It is an experiential programme, inspired by the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, a well-researched psycho-educational programme developed at the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Centre for Mindfulness at the University of
Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, Mass U.S.A., and other teachings. You will be introduced to a set of basic mindfulness skills through simple meditation practices and gentle mindful movement in a group setting. In order to benefit from the practices, it is necessary to give yourself the space to commit to the whole course. There will also be daily home practice. By the end of the course you will be familiar with the main mindfulness meditations and understand how mindfulness works. You will learn a new way of viewing stress and will develop ongoing resilience
to stress and anxiety.
