Event description

Description

* Please note, there is no session on the 29th May due to the school half-term holiday.

Learn how to live a calmer, more peaceful, more mindful way of life on this comprehensive and friendly group course.

The course is £260, which includes the 16 hours of group tuition, weekly course notes, guided audio, ongoing online support and the 5 hour retreat day.

Why practise Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a 'gym for the mind' and through regular mindfulness practice people may see an improvement in the following:

  • stress and anxiety levels

  • chronic pain management

  • breaking habitual thoughts

  • reacting in a more positive way

  • attention \ concentration

  • awareness

  • patience

  • memory

  • sleep

  • resilience

  • general wellbeing

N.B - Whilst a research study shows that regular mindfulness practice can significantly reduce relapse rates for depression, it is best not to take part in an 8-week course whilst suffering from depression or other mental health issue and to wait until you are feeling better.

The 8-week course

This is a comprehensive Mindfulness for Wellbeing course, which closely follows a combination of the two mindfulness models, Mindful Based Stress Relief (MBSR) and Mindful Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), which were developed by Drs. Jon Kabat-Zinn, Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale at the University of Massachusetts and Oxford University.

Classes are 2 hrs per week with a small amount of home practice required. You will need to bring some water, a cushion and a light blanket. There is no need to bring a pad and pen as mindfulness is learnt through experiential practice, however feel free to make notes if you wish.

You will be given some information and worksheets after each session and provided with guided meditation audios to listen to.

The course outline in brief:

Week 1 - Automatic Pilot

Week 2 - Living in our Heads

Week 3 - Gathering the Scattered Mind

Week 4 - Recognising Aversion and Staying Present

Week 5 - Mindful Acceptance

Week 6 - Thoughts are not Facts

Week 7 - How do I best take care of myself?

Week 8 - Your mindful future!

What is the retreat day?

The retreat day will be 10.00 - 15.00 on Saturday, 20th May at The Soltau Centre, St James - the - Less, Stubbings, Henley Rd, Maidenhead SL6 6QW.

During the day I will guide you through all of the practices that you will have learnt during the 8-week course, and there will be some periods of silence. This day is not only a blissful opportunity to enjoy some peace and calm but also a chance to ask any questions you may have.

Please feel free to contact Tricia to discuss the course in more detail or to see whether it is for you on 07776 132083 or tricia@themindhub.co.uk
