“Mindfulness is an essential skill for happiness in the 21st Century. Our lives are constantly bombarded with texts, TV, Twitter, and To do Lists, to name a few! Nurturing and practicing mindfulness allows us to connect to the moment, and experience a much more meaningful experience with ourselves and the world. The MBSR 8 week course was the perfect programme for me to learn the practice of mindfulness, and then share my learnings with my clients. I can highly recommend this programme to anyone who knows they need to be more mindful, but frankly can’t fit it onto their busy schedule! Spread over 8 weeks, it perfect for meshing mindfulness habits into your everyday life to bring about lasting change.”

As the course went on, myself, along with other participants were describing more confidence, more patience and a general feeling of well-being.

I learned that I can calm myself down by focussing on my breath, it’s like and off switch for anxiety.

 

– Alison

My aspiration in taking the MBSR course was to better integrate my meditation practice into my everyday life.  I now feel much more aware of my body and able to “check in” with myself throughout the day… and also to practice a mindful pause in challenging situations, which can allow things to unfold in new and unexpected ways.

Sound understanding of the causes of stress (thoughts and physical reactions) and how being mindful of these during meditation can lead to reduced stress symptoms.  

Gained confidence/knowledge in meditation practices.

 

– Tanya

I have found that I am much more aware of when I am not being mindful and I now bring mindfulness into my life every day.

Was familiar with MBSR from a book, but found it hard to form the meditation habit.  This programme helped a lot.  Thanks.
