Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
I'm excited to be teaching this course, which made a huge difference to me when I first took it in 2010. We'll practice and embody Mindfulness through sitting, walking and lying meditation, mindful movement, discussion, and attention to everyday experience. There'll be nine classes and home practice of doing the meditations (I’ll provide recordings), noticing your everyday experience and taking a few notes.
MBSR started at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979. It can help you relax and thrive, learning to recognise, understand and respond better to your life's stresses and joys. Research shows it can help with many issues, including anxiety and panic attacks; work, family and financial stress; grief; headaches; depression; pain; fatigue; sleep problems. The course is suitable for people of all beliefs and none.
