Mindfulness allows us to bring our attention fully into the present moment.
As we develop a set of skills and techniques we can begin to:
- Manage stress effectively
- Make positive choices in life and work
- Move from ‘automatic’ pilot – dwelling in the past, worrying about the future – to recognising the changes we can make now.
To learn more about mindfulness then here's a link to a live webcast and interview on mindfulness and mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT), with Mark Williams, Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Oxford, and Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow. You'll find more information on our resources page.
Sharpham runs both day courses in Mindfulness (Mindfulness in Daily Life) and 8-week programmes (Mindfulness for Health and Well Being). It also runs a monthly Mindfulness drop in practise session.
Sharpham currently also offers a course - called Sustaining Ourselves Through Mindfulness - this is a residential break for those mainly working in the voluntary, education and healthcare professions, who are in need of rest, renewal, reflection and inspiration. Concessions are available.
