The Mindful Way Through Stress
4 week course Tues 29th Jan-19th Feb 7-9pm
This well- established programme is based on the courses devised by Mark Williams, University of Oxford, Jon Kabat Zinn University of Massachusetts and the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University. It is designed to help you learn new ways of handling stress which you can integrate into your daily life.
The key skill you will learn is mindfulness – actively and non-judgmentally paying attention to your experience in different contexts as you go about your everyday life. This will enable you to see things differently and to let go of unhelpful responses to situations you would normally find stressful.
Most people completing the course report they gain lasting benefits such as
More energy, enthusiasm and appreciation of life
An increased ability to relax and experience calm
A greater ability to manage stressful situations
What does the course involve?
The course consists of 4 weekly sessions lasting two hours. Home practice is an important part of the course, and you will need to set aside 40 minutes a day between classes. Audio and written materials are provided to support your practice.
