Stressful things happen to all of us and often we can’t do very much about them.
Mindfulness helps us to deal with stressful situations by coming back to what’s happening right now. Ok, so you might 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.
Courses are 8 weeks long for 2.5 hours each week. Up to 12 people attend the course, during which you will be provided with CDs/audio downloads for home practice, a copy of The Little Mindfulness Workbook by Gary Hennessy, and a home practice journal.
“I have a better sense of how to ‘be’ in the moment, how to be present and experience the world around me rather than being in my head always planning and always doing and planning”

“I’m much more able to cope with difficult experiences and situations. I’m able to react in a much calmer manner and not catastrophise so much”
Louise, March 2020
