Mindfulness is the practice of bringing our attention, in a friendly way, to the experience of the present moment. It is also about relating to ourselves with kindness.
Anyone can benefit from mindfulness, however the course isn’t suitable for you if you are severely depressed or experiencing significant upheaval of any kind. For example, if you have a current drug/alcohol problem, are currently accessing another therapeutic service, or have experienced a recent bereavement or trauma.
The course includes
- Guided instruction in mindful meditation
- Guided gentle physical stretching
- Group discussion about mindfulness practices
- Cognitive therapy theory and activities on depression and anxiety
- Daily home practice
- Audio recordings of guided practice
- Weekly homework.
