Overview

This course allows you the time and space to practice a variety of mindfulness techniques in order to help you approach difficulty with more ease, cultivate kindness and appreciate the good things in life, even when things are tough.

What's this course about?

This day focuses on practicing mindfulness with less emphasis on the theory, so you can concentrate on experiencing mindfulness and/or improving your ability in mindfulness meditation.

You need to have some knowledge of mindfulness – for example by completing the Mindfulness for beginners course - and the theory and research behind it before taking this course.

What will you get out of it?

The day will give you the opportunity to practice mindfulness, and reflect and extend your practice in a relaxed, leisurely fashion. Practicing mindfulness techniques can improve your ability to cope with stress in the workplace or at home, manage anxiety or depression or improve your concentration, energy levels and enjoyment of life.

After completing this course you will be able to

  • Identify your own motivations and intentions for mindfulness
  • Use mindfulness to approach and deal with difficulty
  • Cultivate kindness using mindfulness exercises
  • Appreciate the good using mindfulness exercises
  • Apply practical mindfulness tools and techniques to help you use mindfulness to:
    • manage strong emotions
    • maintain health and well-being
    • improve productivity
    • improve working relationships
