Event description

Description

Join us for 8 weeks of Mindfulness in the beautiful setting of Islington Ecology Centre this Spring. This course is an invitation to start just where you are, learning how to cultivate an attitude of curiosity, patience and self compassion towards your experience. By practising mindfulness in a group setting, you will increase your capacity to live more fully in the present – the only moment we actually ever have.

Attending a mindfulness course over 8 weeks has been shown to help you enjoy life more fully, to manage stress more skilfully, build resilience when life is challenging and to improve health and well-being.

What to expect

The course follows the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) model, an evidence based programme to dealing with the everyday as well as coping with times of low mood, stress, anxiety and depression. First we’ll have an orientation session, each week after we’ll be focussing on a structured course to develop and deepen your mindfulness practice.

To gain the full benefits of the course, you’ll be required to commit to 45 minutes to an hour of daily home-practice to be set by your mindfulness teacher, Nic.

The practice of mindfulness enables you to learn to enjoy life more fully and;

  • Manage better with stress and anxiety
  • Improve concentration and attention
  • Build resilience
  • Improve health and wellbeing
  • Cope better at times of difficulty
  • Accept ourselves and others, as well as life events

At the end of this course you’ll be more mindful! Find out more about mindfulness on our website.
