Mindfulness practice helps bring awareness back to our moment-by-moment experience, enabling us to step out of automatic pilot and creating space to respond rather than react. We become less caught up in the ups and downs of life and learn to build a different relationship with ourselves - one in which we are less reactive, kinder to ourselves and more open and curious about the unfolding experience of our lives.
What is the course about?
The aims of the course are to help you to develop an in-depth personal experience of mindfulness and to build the foundations of a sustained personal practice, with a view to applying this in your life and perhaps also in your professional work.
Is it for me?
The course is ideal for beginners as well as for those who have previous experience of mindfulness and who want to deepen their practice. The course is experiential, not therapeutic.
