Event Details

This course uses a combination of mindfulness meditation, body awareness, mindful movement  and resarched wellbeing tools and techniques to help you become happier, more mindful and less stressed.

In recent years this course has been the subject of controlled clinical research which has found beneficial effects, including stress reduction, relaxation, and improvements to quality of life. While MBSR has its roots in spiritual teachings, the program itself is secular.

This substantial program is shown to improve emotional wellbeing and be an effective treatment for anxiety or low-mood difficulties. It can also be helpful for those looking for an 'edge' in their work or creative performance. It is not only about elevation of low-mood it's actually life enhancing practice for everyone that increases confidence, focus and happiness.

Mindfulness helps us to; open to life rather than struggle against it, respond to challenges rather than react, show compassion towards ourselves rather than judgement and appreciation rather than negativity - allowing us to feel more connected, open, and more deeply alive.

I am delighted to be offering this MBCT for life course – it is very similar to the 8-week course I’ve been teaching for the past seven years – but it has been updated via the latest research and best practice via the Oxford Mindfulness Centre. I am also teaching this new program as part of the Oxford MYRAID research study involving schools across the UK including Northern Ireland.

This is a certified course with 27 hours CPD for those of you who need that sort of thing! It is also a pre-requiste for any mindfulness teacher training you are interested in, including mindfulness for children.

N.B -  as well as the 8 weekly 2.5 hour sessions this programme also includes an all day retreat with lunch in Drumalis Retreat Centre, Larne on Saturday 26 May. It also includes a comprehensive, supportive 125 page file and audio tracks for home practice.  Home practice is an integral part of the course.Please note before you pay a deposit for this course you must communicate with me and fill out an application form - thank you. Email directly on - you can pay by bank transfer cheque or cash also.

It is very important that the  mindfulness and wellbeing teacher you choose follows UK best practice guidelines and is registered and accredited. See Bridgeen’s listing on here.
