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.

The Live Online 8 week MBSR course is run exactly the same way as an in-person course. Instead of travelling to an external location once a week however, we connect through the Zoom conference system for 2.5 hours once a week over a period of 8 weeks. The sessions are led in the same way with the same curriculum as in-person courses each session combining didactic parts as well as practice together with the group led by the teacher. After each session participants are given home practice to complete during the following week.

“I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn about their mind and how to treat it with the care it requires to stay healthy.” Previous participant on this course

Home practice

Home practice plays an important role in this course and you will need to consider if you are able to commit to practice up 30-45 minutes per day. Mindfulness is an experiential practice, its benefits come through practice, not through intellectually reading or learning about it. To support your home practice, in the beginning of the course we will email to you an extensive Participants Workbook and each week you will be sent that week’s practice as an mp3 file. Home practice includes listening and practicing together with the mp3’s, reflecting and making notes about your experience and practicing some informal practices during your day

CONTENT: The course comprises 8 weekly 2.30 hour sessions +  Course Book + Mindfulness Exercises + Guided Meditations on MP3

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.

You are also strongly encouraged to do your own daily personal meditation practice (about 30 mins a day 6 days a week) in order for you to get the maximum benefit from the course.

System and Other Requirements

In both cases, to ensure the best possible experience for all participants, the course relies on video conferencing which has minimum requirements to work properly. That includes having a laptop or desktop computer with speakers, microphone, video capabilities, and a high-speed internet connection (not wifi). You will also need to find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed. For the sessions we recommend that you have a dining type chair to sit on, you will also need space to practice some gentle Mindful Movement.
