Mindfulness for stress (8-week course)
Do you suffer from stress and other conditions associated with stress?
Stressful things happen and often we can’t do very much about them.
Mindfulness helps us to deal with stressful situations by coming back to what’s happening right now. OK, so you might still be under pressure to get that job done, you may still be stuck in that traffic jam or the weather may be awful - again! But that’s all.
Mindfulness will help you discover that you don’t have to live with all the unhelpful thoughts and feelings that our minds tend to throw up in reaction to stressful experiences. Mindfulness practice doesn’t get rid of problems – while we’re alive we’ll always have problems – it helps us to change our relationship with them.
Who is the course for?
These courses are suitable for anyone experiencing stress associated with work, relationships, loss and other factors outside your control. Also for those who want to learn strategies to deal with the general complexity and pace of modern life.
This is an eight-week course for learning strategies and approaches within a supportive and friendly group setting with a qualified Breathworks mindfulness teacher.
In the mindfulness for stress course you will learn:
- Ways to reduce stress and become more resilient, calmer, happier and inspired.
- How to apply mindfulness to all aspects of your life, giving you more choice in how you respond to life’s challenges.
The course includes:
- Four meditation practices:
- body scan
- breath meditation
- mindful movement
- kindness meditation.
- Mindfulness in daily life which includes a number of small things (micro-practices) that reduce stress while going about your daily activities.
- New ideas and ways of looking at problems that can transform the way you experience your life’s challenges.
This is an eight-week course, running on Wednesday evenings (6pm to 8.30pm) starting on Tuesday 10th October 2017.
