The Frantic World introductory 8-week course was developed by Mark Williams and Danny Penman, and is based on the internationally recognised Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy programme (MBCT), which was co-developed by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University.
The course is intended for non-clinical populations and is particularly suitable for beginners to mindfulness. It introduces participants to a set of simple yet powerful mindfulness practices that can be incorporated into daily life to help break the cycle of stress, anxiety and unhappiness, and to find genuine contentment. The reduced time commitment of this course makes it more accessible for people with busy lives.

What is Mindfulness?
“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 whatever 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.
Through practicing mindfulness, we come to know ourselves better, and learn to recognise how we relate both to the external world, and the internal world of thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. This 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 and life’s joys that we may not fully experience because of our tendency to become preoccupied with what has happened and what might happen.
