What have previous students said?

“Excellent course in everyway – practical, informative, gentle, well-prepared and structured.” EK, counsellor, Swansea

“The tutor was patient and very receptive to the needs of those on the course.” MQ, Cardiff

“The course has helped me cope with physical pain and deal with the pressure of work.” RC, Cardiff

“It has made me enjoy every day and not want to wish ‘bad’ days away.” JK, researcher, Swansea

What will we cover? We will cover the core syllabus of the courses in MBSR, (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) and MBCT, (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy). This includes mindfulness of breathing and body scan meditations, breathwork and bodywork, input and discussion on the theory and principles of mindfulness. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply the teachings to your life and experience.

Who is the course for? The course is open to beginners and to people who have meditated before in other settings. The only course requirement is that you make a commitment to attend all the sessions and set up and maintain a daily meditation and mindfulness practice. (You will get lots of support to help you do so.)

How much home practice will I be asked to do? Mindfulness meditation is a skill that requires commitment and daily practice to develop. To get the full benefits from the course you will need to set aside a regular time to do home practice of up to 60 minutes per day. We will start with 15 minutes meditation and build up to a daily practice of 40-45 minutes. In addition you'll be encouraged to bring mindfulness to activities during your day; drinking tea, walking and having a shower. If you think that this is going to be difficult for you please discuss this with the trainer before you enrol.

Is there any course reading? We recommend that you read either Mindfulness: A Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World (Williams), Full Catastrophe Living (Kabat-Zinn) or Living Well with Pain and Illness (Burch).

What equipment do I need? You might choose to invest in a meditation cushion and mat to support your practice.

Learning Environment A central part of the learning on this course will take place between students, in the group. For this learning to take place it is essential that the group environment is comfortable, friendly and supportive. I see it as a key part of my role to facilitate this environment.
