8-week MBSR Courses in Shoreham-By-Sea, West Sussex. Next Course starts 22nd January 2018.
The 8–week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a course in simple meditation practices that can help us develop the skill of being present with our internal experience (physical sensations, thoughts and emotions) and with our external experience (interactions with others, actions in the world) and in the interplay between the two.
Mindfulness can help us become less stressed, happier, and more focused. It can also offer us greater awareness, choice and freedom towards how we respond to both the unpleasant and pleasant aspects of our lives and to its challenges.
Participants will be introduced to the key principles of living mindfully, and to some of the core meditation practices to help cultivate mindfulness in daily life. They will also leave with of ideas of ways that they can begin to develop their own practice.
TIME : 7.15pm to 9.30pm
CONTENT: The course comprises 8 weekly 2.15 hour sessions + an optional
4 hour Mindfulness “retreat” group practice at the end of the course*. (24 hours of teaching/group mindfulness practice in total).
LOCATION: Room 7, Community Centre, 2 Pond Road Shoreham-
Each session is a combination of Mindfulness Meditation practice, discussions and teaching. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences with the group, although this is on a purely invitational basis and is not essential. The course provides a safe and supportive environment for each person to explore their experience. Participants will be asked to complete a short questionnaire and participate in a short phone conversation with me before being accepted on to the course.
You are also strongly encouraged to do your own daily personal practice (about 30 mins a day 6 days a week) in order for you to get the maximum benefit from the course.
