Event description

Description

Led by Breathing Space

The concept of Mindfulness as an approach is a modern one, offering a new way of altering our outlook on life and helping us to manage stress and anxiety. It is very simply allowing ourselves to remain in the present with those feelings and emotions in our physical being, but not judging them. It aims to prevent those feelings and emotions from overwhelming us. It helps us to maintain a balance within the Mind and Body, which helps us to take a more philosophical and detached outlook to our experiences.

A qualified practitioner will lead you during this five session course to cover these concepts: the Key concepts of Mindfulness; the habit of thinking and coming out of autopilot; breathing and body scan techniques; the practice of Mindfulness meditation; using Mindfulness in everyday life; using Mindfulness to reduce anxiety and stress.

The course is aimed at those who wish to use Mindfulness as a tool to support their personal health and wellbeing, as well as those who wish to learn new techniques to reduce stress and anxiety. Attending the entire course is required to gain the most benefit.
