Event description

Description

The Mindfulness Based Living Course is a weekly Mindfulness course over eight weeks consisting of eight classes which are typically two hours long. It is one of the courses recognised by the UK Good Practise Guidelines and teachers of the courses are members of the UK Listing of Mindfulness Teachers. It is similar in content to the MBSR Course but places a stronger emphasis on cultivating loving kindness and compassion towards ourselves and others. It was this element of the course that drew Sara to training with the Mindfulness Association. Kindness and compassion sit at the heart of this course.

Three decades of published research indicates that most people who complete mindfulness courses report:

  • An increased ability to relax and an improvement in quality and duration of sleep
  • The ability to cope more effectively with stress and anxiety, depression, anger and panic states
  • The ability to cope better with chronic pain and reduction in pain levels
  • Greater enthusiasm, creativity and increased energy levels
  • Improved self-esteem and clarity of thought
  • A more effective immune system

The course is very experiential, each session consisting of at least one meditation, or “practice” and the opportunity to explore and share in a supportive group environment experiences of the practices both within the group and at home, this will all be done under Sara`s expert guidance. In order to honour that supportive group feel we keep the groups small. There are a number of courses at different times that run throughout the year.

Meditation practices include the body scan, mindfulness of breathing, sound, body and thoughts, 3-minute breathing space, mindful movement, mindful walking, loving kindness meditation, mountain meditation and mindful eating. There will also be an exploration of how to bring mindfulness into our daily life, work and communication with others, and how mindfulness can help with stress and anxiety.

Mindfulness is an outlook rather than a technique and developing a regular meditation practice enables us to cultivate and develop it. Home practice is therefore an important aspect to this training and making the space to practise will help you to gain the maximum benefit from the course.

Each course consists of:

  • A one to one chat on the phone prior to the start of the course
  • Online support for the duration of the course
  • Eight two-hour sessions
  • A fifteen-minute tea break each week. Refreshments will be provided
  • An optional follow up session after the course has finished
  • Access to practise recordings and a course manual

Sara is available throughout the duration of the course via phone or email to support you in your practice and answer any questions.

Chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own meditation cushions or stools, warm socks, slippers, blankets and yoga mats for additional comfort. We suggest you wear loose fitting clothes.

The cost is £200 and covers the full eight weeks of the course. The first date is the 1st May and the course ends on the 26th June with an optional session on the 3rd July.

The course takes place at our office at 75 Park Road Peterborough PE1 2TN. There is parking to the front of the building and a public carpark opposite but you will need change for the ticket machine situated on the wall.
