This training is a deep introduction to mindfulness.
In a supportive community - over 8 weeks - learn to cultivate presence, joy, and compassion.
8 weekly live zoom sessions on Saturdays from 10am to 12pm.
Starting on 28th May and finishing on 16th July.
All of the live sessions are recorded and uploaded to our learning platform so you can catch up on anything you miss.
In addition, there is a day retreat on Sunday 3rd July via zoom which takes place from 10am until 4pm.
All times are UK time.
It’s about becoming fully present for each moment of life.
When we practice this consistently we become less caught up in the chatter of our mind; we learn the art of bringing ease and relaxation to our nervous system; we enjoy more deeply the good things in life; and learn to bring compassion to what’s difficult.
In short, it's a revolutionary approach to life.
What's more these positive emotional experiences don't just make us feel good - they change the way we approach life. To nourish our happiness and joy can be transformational.
On this course you'll learn concrete practices to nurture joy and happiness.
These practices allow us to befriend our inner critic and become less judgmental of ourselves and others. They are also one of the strongest cause of wellbeing, allowing us to live with greater purposefulness and flow and less self-consciousness
In this course, you'll learn practices to cultivate kindness and compassion that human beings have used for 1,000s of years.
I won't be able to make all of the sessions, can I still join the course?
We very much encourage attendance at the live sessions because they are interactive and dynamic, but if you need to miss any you'll be able to catch up with the recordings on our learning platform.
I have some experience of mindfulness already, will this course be too basic?
If you have some experience, but haven't been practising that long, it's likely you'll find this course very worthwhile.
While it intends to be suitable for complete beginners, it is a deep introduction, and will likely offer new perspectives and depth to your existing practice.
What homework is required outside of the weekly live sessions?
A crucial part of this course is developing your daily mindfulness meditation practice. We will provide you with audio guided meditations in mp3 format. Plan to give 30 minutes a day to your daily practice.
Developing a new daily mindfulness practice can be challenging and we don't expect participants to perfect in maintaining their daily practice. The course is here to support you in developing this habit. It's this consistent practice that is key to gaining the most benefit from the course.
