Description

Do you want to learn mindfulness?

This Breathworks-based course teaches mindfulness skills to help improve the quality of your life.

Mindfulness helps us to deal with stressful situations by coming back to what's happening right now. You may still be under pressure to get that job done, you may still be stuck in that traffic jam, or the weather may be awful - again! But that's all.

Mindfulness will help you discover that you don't have to live with all the unhelpful thoughts and feelings that our minds tend to throw up in reaction to stressful experiences. Mindfulness practice doesn't get rid of problems - while we're alive we'll always have problems - it helps us to change our relationship with them.

The Mindfulness for Stress Course is an eight week course for learning strategies and approaches within a supportive and friendly group setting with Melli O'Brien, a qualified Breathworks Mindfulness Teacher.

During the course we will be engaging in various activities to foster mindfulness and kindness. These include formal meditation practices, as well as small things we can do in the midst of our daily lives, such as doing a routine task mindfully, taking a break, slowing down a little. In particular we'll be using the body sensations and the breath to help develop awareness. The aim of meditation is not to prevent the mind wandering off - which it will do, repeatedly - but to get into the habit of learning to check in with our experience so we have choices in how we respond.

The formal meditation aspect of the course is focused practice at learning to check in, and the informal mindful activities are ways to extend that learning into our daily lives. We need both. During the course you are encouraged to try out all the different practices fully, so that at the end of the course you can decide which practices work best for you.
