About the sessions
The course will take place over 8 weekly or fortnightly sessions of 2 hours and each session will include some practical and experiential learning. This will involve meditation, simple physical movement, and discussion. We’ll also encourage you to do a bit of ‘home practice’ each day in between the sessions – from as little as 10 minutes.
