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.
“By practising what we learnt I have become calmer and am beginning to feel happier too. Thank you for the opportunity to do this course”
Lorna, Mindfulness for Stress course participant, November 2017
Courses are 8 weeks long for 2.5 hours each week. Between 6-12 people attend the course, during which you will be provided with CDs/audio downloads for home practice, a copy of The Little Mindfulness Workbook, and a home practice book.
“I can definitely “check in” with myself more easily now and this means I feel less stressed, even in situations that are stressful. The negative feelings I experience disappear quicker when I embrace them.
Sally was incredibly calm and sensitive to the group and presented everything in a really clear way. I felt safe in her hands to explore meditation more deeply without feeling self-conscious.”
