Course Information:

Day of Mindfulness Practice: 22nd March from 10.30am -4.00pm (Venue tbc).

This course teaches us how to pay attention, with kindness and with a sense of spaciousness to what is being experienced in the present. We will also get to know our cognitive and emotional habits, i.e. the planning, the judgements, the anxious thoughts and so on and learn to to respond rather than react automatically. This course is taught in a very experiential way so that each participant learns at their own pace. You might say we are are own expert, but need time and space to get to know this part of ourselves.

There are low cost spaces available.

Before you take this course, the teachers will make contact and have a conversation to make sure its the right time for you to undertake this relatively intensive course.
