Event description


Do you wish you were less emotionally reactive?

Less stressed as a parent?

More productive at work?

Do you wish you were more calm, focussed, and happy - able to enjoy your relationships with a sense of ease?

MINDFULNESS can give us these tools, in simple, easy steps.

Beginning with a free introductory workshop, this 4 week course will explore :

• The NEUROSCIENCE OF MINDFULNESS – how mindfulness can help reshape our neural pathways to promote calmer, happier states of being

WHAT IS STRESS? How does it affect our brain and body’s biochemistry? And how can mindfulness help?

FORMAL & INFORMAL MINDFULNESS PRACTICE – strengthening the muscle of the mind through the practice of focussing our attention, then learning to integrate mindfulness into everyday life so we can stay calm, happy, connected and productive

• The Super Power heart practices of LOVING KINDNESS and GRATITUDE – how they chill us out, make us happier and more resilient when life throws us the odd curve ball!

Printed materials, a journal, booklist for further reading and free recorded guided meditations will be provided.

TESTIMONIALS (from previous courses facilitated by Kate) :

"I have learnt how to pause, and use my breath to help me in situations...How to not be so tough and judgemental of myself... I would recommend this to anyone for the therapeutic benefit it has had on my mind and my body."

"I have had a taste of deeper, more conscious thought...I'm a bit kinder to myself and like the idea that it's ok when my mind wanders off thinking, and that the gold lies in noticing that, and returning to the task."

"I've learnt that I can stop and listen to my body and be aware of my reactions. And that 10 mins to stop and breathe makes a big difference to my state of mind - and the rest of my day."

"I would tell someone that it's a constructive and powerful use of time - when we mostly think that it's a luxury we cannot afford. If we are looking for a new way to view the world and be peaceful we can find it within ourselves."

"I liked finding so much common ground within the group."

"I've learnt to slow down and smell the roses."
