This 8-week mindfulness course is the Mindfulness Association’s own 8-week course that richly combines experiential development of mindfulness and compassion. In simple terms, 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. It is an eight week course consisting of eight classes, which are typically two hours long, preceded by an introductory class before the eight week course begins, so the course is nine sessions in total. A ‘retreat’ day of mindfulness practice is also typically included between weeks 6 and 7.
Weekly themes are:
Introductory Session – What is Mindfulness and Why Practice It?
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
Day of Practice
Week 7 – Self-acceptance
Week 8 – A Mindfulness Based Life
The course cost includes your manual, access to meditation practice recordings (MP3s) and a full day retreat. The course cost is £165 (£30 deposit payable at the time of booking and remaining payment of £135 at first session of the course, or in 3 x monthly payments of £45).
There are ‘pay what you can’ places available. If you can’t afford to pay the remaining course fee on the first evening of the course or in instalments then you can simply pay the deposit and then pay what you can during the course. Please e-mail me if you have any questions about this.
This course runs weekly on a Monday evening from 7pm til 9pm, commencing on Monday 28th January 2019 with the last session on Monday 25th March 2019.
