MINDFULNESS TRAINING COURSES WITH TERESA LEWIS

Teresa regularly delivers an 8 week Mindfulness for Stress course. The Mindfulness course consists of 8 x 2-hour group sessions, where there will be guided mindfulness practice and theoretical teachings. Each week participants are taught a number of different mindfulness practices that can be incorporated into daily life to reduce stress and aid general wellbeing.

To find out more about our Mindfulness for Stress Course please click: Mindfulness for Stress, Wolverhampton.

Teresa also delivers a Mindful Wellbeing Graduates course for graduates of her Mindfulness for Stress course and other accredited 8 week mindfulness courses. The course comprises 6 x monthly 2-hour classes where participants will develop their mindfulness practice and learn more about how the mind works and the factors that can help them to have a more fulfilling life. Practices are grounded in modern neuroscience and psychotherapy thus offering a fascinating synthesis of contemplative practice and new brain science.
