Mindfulness is an increasingly popular technique used to promote well-being and can be a key tool in recovery.
This informally led course will explore the topic of mindfulness, introducing practical exercises to develop new mindfulness skills and build sustainable techniques to aid well-being.
Over 8 sessions we’ll introduce you to the key principles and practice basic mindfulness exercises. We’ll also give you the time to think about if mindfulness could benefit you in your daily life and talk about the best ways to introduce it.
The ‘brief introduction to mindfulness’ session is recommended as an introduction to this course.
What is the Recovery College?
DISCOVER: Recovery College is led by South West Yorkshire Partnership Trust and supported by Kirklees Council. We work in partnership with volunteers and other supporting organisations to develop and run a range of workshops and courses which promote well-being and good mental health.
We focus on education, building people’s skills and knowledge and should not be seen as therapy or a clinical intervention.
Our sessions have been designed and are run by people with personal experience of maintaining their own emotional wellbeing and professionals that work with them.
