Introduction to Mindfulness

Mindfulness can help us enjoy the world more and understand ourselves better by changing the way we think, feel and act. It involves developing an ability to become aware of what is happening in the present, moment-by-moment, rather than being on 'automatic pilot'.

This course will help you to learn mindfulness techniques that can improve your mental wellbeing. 

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Have an understanding of what mindfulness is and how it helps
  • Better understand the factors, common to us all, that cause and maintain distress
  • Improve your response to distress by developing skills in mindfulness
  • Have the resources to practice mindfulness for your own wellbeing
  • Be able to decide whether mindfulness is something you wish to pursue.

Duration: This programme involves mindfulness training over four weeks, with one class per week.
