Course overview:

Life is challenging and messy; sometimes our minds are filled with worrying or negative thoughts or we feel stuck. Sometimes we might feel that we live our lives on autopilot or things are happening around us that seem out of control.

Are you curious about “mindfulness”? Mindfulness-based training is an ancient approach, now recognised scientifically for promoting wellbeing. It involves non-judgementally paying attention to thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations in a way that can increase our awareness and compassion and help us to manage difficult experiences and develop ways to see things differently.

Course information:

This 4-week course introduces mindfulness for everyday living. We consider how it can help our wellbeing, what techniques form part of mindfulness practices, ways you can be mindful in your own life and where you can go to learn more about mindfulness.
