Event Details

Mindfulness refers to ‘kind compassionate - awareness’. It is about living fully in the present moment. This means paying deliberate attention to what you are doing, as you are doing it, with open compassionate awareness.

Mindfulness and Compassion based training courses offer an excellent foundation for understanding and practicing mindfulness and compassion meditations both in a direct practical way and also within a group setting. It can offer an insight for many in cultivating a different kind of relationship with oneself and others and enhance your experience of stress-free living and being.

This Basic Foundation training in mindfulness and compassion will help you to systematically develop the skill of being present with your experience. The introductory session and the eight week course aims to assist you in dealing with what can be stressful for you and helps you to take better care of yourself and get the most out of your life. The majority of people completing this programme report lasting physical and emotional/psychological benefits including; an increased ability to relax, greater energy and enthusiasm for life, heightened self-confidence, an increased ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term busyness and stressful situations and  balance and resilience in life and work situation

Educators are interested in the calming and focusing qualities of mindfulness and compassion that help students and staff reduce stress and become more patient and present in the learning environment, but they are also interested in how that calm stability can positively affect cognitive functions like attention and memory, and lead eventually toward greater understanding and wisdom. Educators are also interested in how mindfulness and compassion can assist the work of the academy in the need to plan, set goals, set priorities, and move back and forth among tasks.
