Introduction to Mindfulness

Mindfulness allows us to pay attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally.

This day introduces a variety of Mindfulness techniques to help us cultivate this way of being and is suitable for those new to Mindfulness and those who wish to refresh and practise their skills.

The Introduction to Mindfulness course draws on the approaches of both Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (Jon Kabat-Zinn) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (Teasdale et al) and is an approach to handling the stresses and strains of life by bringing our full awareness to the present moment, thereby enabling more choices.

The Introduction to Mindfulness  course is an introductory course, while the 8-week Mindfulness course covers the full programme of mindfulness techniques and applications.

What our participants thought

  • Despite the fact that I had done the 8 week programme, I still feel I benefitted enormously from this day. The drop in evenings are worthwhile, however for me are squeezed in at the end of a busy day and the longer residential programmes are not convenient for me as I have young children. So this felt like a great compromise and having a whole day devoted to mindfulness was wonderful and really reinforced the practice for me.
