Event Details

This eight week live online course, running for 75 minutes per week (Tuesday's, at 19.00 UK time), teaches core mindfulness skills.  Based on the most empirically validated approach to teaching the benefits of mindfulness, sessions lasting an hour and a quarter a week help attendees develop their own mindfulness practice.  This practice has been shown many times to be beneficial to most of those who practice, building resilience, enhancing well-being, and improving focus and clarity at work and at home.

Like any skill, mindfulness requires practice - and this will be your main task as an attendee, practicing the mindfulness exercises every day for up to 30 minutes.  You will be provided with guided audio meditation recordings which can be listened to either over the internet, or by downloading to your favourite mobile device.

There will also be a private access course website, including weekly guidance, discussion forum, links to supporting science papers, and the guided meditation.

You can find further background on the course in the Core Mindfulness at Work section of our website.

Finally, the course is taught by Mark Quirk MSc who has conducted primary research into the application of meditation in the workplace, holds a master’s degree in applied positive psychology, and has attended formal mindfulness teacher training run according the UK Network for Mindfulness-based Teacher Training Organisations. Naturally, he also has his own regular mindfulness practice.

What is the refund policy?

A full refund is available if you choose to cancel your attendance 48 or more hours before the first training session, and a 70% refund right up until the first session.  A full refund is also available if you attend the first training session and decide that the course is not for you - just let us know within 24 hours of the first session.

 

Is the course suitable for those with depression or other mental illness?

Although mindfulness practice can be beneficial for those with depression or other mental illness, this course is NOT suitable for anyone in that situation.

 

What are the computer / technical requirements to attend?

A Windows or Mac PC, with an up-to-date web browser, a reliable internet connection, and a microphone (built into most laptops) are ideal to run the webinar software.  An Apple iPad or modern Android tablet may also be suitable.


Is this a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) or Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course?

This course is based on a combined MBSR, MBCT 8-week approach to learning mindfulness.  It isn't a full official MBSR/MBCT course which would normally be taught face-to-face, for 2.5 hours per session, and requires meditation practice typically of 40+ minutes per day.  So, this online course makes some practical adjustments, reducing the teaching time to 75 minutes per week (2.5 hours online is looooong), with shorter mindfulness meditation practices.  Of course, the shorter practices can be extended to any length you like.

Reach Remarkable does offer face-to-face, MBSR/MBCT based courses run in the workplace.  You can read more on our website.


Do I need to be able to sit in the lotus position or any other special position?

No!  There is no special sitting position or physical requirements.  For a sitting meditation the suggestion is to sit upright, with your upper body self-supporting (for example, away from the back of a chair).  But if that isn't practical, then you can sit however you choose.
