Want to enhance your wellbeing and learn to deal more skilfully with life's challenges? Then mindfulness may be for you!
Our eight-week course will help you develop an in-depth personal experience of mindfulness and assist you in building the foundations of a sustained personal practice, with a view to applying this to your own life and perhaps professional work (where this applies).
There are many benefits to mindfulness meditation including the ability to deal skilfully with long term conditions and challenging life circumstances.
When: The course runs weekly on a Friday evening from 5.30-7.30pm, commencing on Friday 26 October 2018 with the final session on Friday 14 December 2018
Where: First Psychology Glasgow, 8 Sandyford Place, Glasgow G3 7NB.
Led by Dr Emma Field, one of our highly skilled and experienced counselling psychologists with an expertise in mindfulness, this eight-week course is the Mindfulness Association's own eight-week course that richly combines experiential development of mindfulness and compassion. Put simply, the course teaches how we can navigate in a more skilful way through what is an increasingly fast-paced, distracted and turbulent world. The course is based on the Mindfulness Association's one-year training in mindfulness.
Weekly themes are:
Week 1 - Start where we are
Week 2 - The body as a place to stay present
Week 3 - Introducing mindfulness support
Week 4 - Working with distraction
Week 5 - Exploring the undercurrent
Week 6 - Attitude of the observer
Week 7 - Self-acceptance
Week 8 - A mindfulness-based life
This is an introductory course designed for participants who have an interest in finding out more about mindfulness and how it can enhance their own well-being. Participants are not expected to have any previous experience or training in mindfulness. The course is primarily experiential involving guided practice and discussion/reflection in a friendly, relaxed and accessible way.
The course costs £199 which includes your own Mindfulness Association manual and access to meditation practice recordings.
