Mindfulness teaches us to bring awareness to our immediate experience with a gentle and kind attitude. We become familiar with our habitual thought patterns and tendencies (grasping after certain experiences while avoiding unpleasant experiences). Wenotice our reactions and allow things to be as they are rightnow without judgements. While mindfulness is nota cure-all, research does suggest its effectiveness in:

  • Reducing stress levels
  • Improving physical health (reduced blood pressure, improved immunity)
  • Getting a better night’s sleep
  • Helping anxiety and depression
  • Improving tolerance of chronic pain
  • Lifting mood and appreciating what is good in life
  • Managing communicationmore effectively
  • Enhancing feelings of self-worth and compassion for others

Based on a curriculum designed by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, this 8-week course is the gold standard in mindfulness training for stress reduction. A course booklet and CDs/downloads are provided, with weekly sessions building one upon the other. Session typically include both formal and informal meditation practice, education around stress management and self-care as well as group exercises and exploration. From the outset the facilitator creates a safe and friendly environment where participants can explore their experience without pressure and without judgments.
