Six session course
Mindfulness is fantastic for dealing with stress and is shown to be more effective than anti- depressants, and it’s also great for lots of health problems ranging from psoriasis to irritable bowel syndrome.
But Mindfulness isn’t really about illness, it’s about wellness. It’s about taking a break from the noise in our heads and really starting to live. Getting the most from life, living fully, intensely and sucking every juicy drop out of this moment.
These 6 weekly evening classes give you all the tools you need to bring Mindfulness into the stresses and strains of everyday life, so you can keep a smile on your face in the midst of all the madness.
Week 1 - How To Cultivate Mindfulness:
The basic principles of mindfulness are very simple. Mindfulness is not something that requires a lot of brain work or needs to be understood intellectually. Mindfulness is a state of being, a particular way of paying attention that brings things into a new focus, it's a whole new way of experiencing the world. There's no point in trying to explain really, because for it to mean anything it has to be experienced directly.
