from 340.00

Mindfulness is a non-judgmental approach to paying attention to the present moment. By practicing mindfulness you can change the way you think about your experiences and therefore cope more effectively with everyday stress, including anxiety, chronic pain or mild depression. MBSR teaches us how to bring mindfulness (awareness) into each day so as to better cope with the inevitable ups and downs of life. It incorporates techniques such as meditation, gentle yoga and mind-body exercises to help people cope with stress.

The MBSR program involves 8 two and a half-hour sessions plus one full day session, taking place over eight weeks.  This highly participatory, practical course includes:

  • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation

  • Gentle stretching and mind-body awareness exercises

  • Group discussion aimed at increasing awareness in everyday life

  • Essential daily home practices that concretise the benefits

  • Techniques that can be practised anywhere, anytime, to fit into your lifestyle.

  • Workbook, selected readings and a series of guided meditations
