Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
(MBSR/ MBCT) is a program for reducing stress and anxiety which has been widely approved by the international medical community. It teaches greater awareness of our thoughts, feelings and sensations through simple techniques like meditation and gentle movement.
In the course you will learn:
- to stay in touch with the present moment and be less caught up in negative thought patterns
- to develop more helpful responses to stress
- to use simple meditation techniques which can transform daily life including sitting meditation exercises (eg mindfulness of breathing), body scan and yoga
We have years of experience of meditation practice and a commitment to making the benefits of mindfulness more widely known and experienced.
