Finding Peace in a Frantic World 8-week Mindfulness Course Maximum 10 places. Non-refundable.
The Finding Peace in a Frantic World course is based on the renowned Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy programme, known as MBCT. Both programmes were developed by Professor Mark Williams and colleagues at Oxford University. The Finding Peace programme distils the content into a shorter format making it more accessible for everyone. During the course participants learn a variety of simple yet powerful mindfulness meditation practices that can be easily incorporated into everyday life. Each week we explore different yet related themes. Home practice is an important part of all mindfulness courses and participants are supported in establishing their own regular practice over the duration of the eight weeks.
If you have any questions about the course please get in touch by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the contact form below and I will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges when we deliberately focus attention on our present moment experience in a non- judging, accepting way – Jon Kabat Zinn
Mindfulness involves paying attention to what is happening in the present moment with a kind and friendly attitude towards ourselves and our experience. We all have the innate capacity to be mindful and we can develop this skill through meditation practice, and the cultivation of particular attitudes such as curiosity, acceptance and kindness. By practicing mindfulness regularly, we learn to recognise how we relate to the external world and to our internal world of thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. In this way, we come to know ourselves better. Self awareness is the first step in learning to respond, rather than react habitually, to the stressors and challenges that life presents. Mindfulness can also lead to a greater appreciation of the little things in life that we often take for granted.
