You’ll be required to do readings and activities every week. A genuine commitment to daily mindfulness meditation home practise is essential for the duration of the 6 weeks and hopefully beyond.

Week 1: Mindfulness approaches and perceptions
Week 2: Stress, difficulties and resiliency
Week 3: Sitting practice and developing the mindfulness attitudes
Week 4: Habit, narrative, choice and movement practice

The benefits of Mindfulness outlined in the American Psychology Association include stress reduction, boosts to working memory, reduced rumination, improved focus, less emotional reactivity, cognitive flexibility, relationship satisfaction, enhance insight and increased immune function.
Mindfulness meditation practise can lead to significant changes in the brain. Improving connectivity to the self regulating region and decreasing the size of the reactive region of the brain.
Our evidence based program is offered as a secular framework but we acknowledge the teachings draw from the ancient, Eastern wisdom traditions of Buddhism.

The greatest insight from doing the 6 week mindfulness course was how my concentration on activities began to improve and my overall attention. I was also able to sleep better and be more mindful when undertaking tasks. ~Physiotherapist
The 6 week mindfulness course informed me of the importance of meditation for mental health. I found my skills set was improved and it improved my self-awareness and the development of greater calmness. ~ Aiden Jones
I have tried meditation in the past- many years ago. I remembering finding it difficult then, to silence my mind and focus “on the candle”. When I discovered Marion’s website I knew this was going to be a different approach to traditional meditation and that the scientific approach appealed to me.
I consider myself somewhat spiritual but I am still governed by my analytical side” the need to understand the process and the outcome- ultimately my need to control my environment”
From my 6 weeks with the class- I pushed aside the need to control and the frustration to perfect the process..and allowed myself to settle into the moment, no judgement, no criticism and no assessment” these are the key pillars to being present.
Once I adopted the process of Mindfulness, I become more aware of myself and the triggers to stress, empowering me at work and with managing situations- ultimately gaining more control”
I am committed to incorporating mindfulness into my routine and strongly recommend Marion’s 6 week session to all those that lead corporate and busy lifestyles. ~ Georgia Falcke - Media Director , My Media Garden
One thing I can see happening is change, and that’s because I’m taking accountability. I’m loving this. It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s meaningful. Really glad I started this process. Looking forward to a really positive week.~Manager
