Mindfulness (Course Code: 52)
This course is a highly experiential 8-week Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation and the main components are participation and commitment. You wouldn’t expect to learn to play an instrument or a sport merely by reading a book on the subject, likewise learning to develop a meditation practice is no different than any other skill that involves both mind and body – practice is the key. Working as part of a group helps to encourage participation, intention and a collective energy which can have a profound impact on motivation, support and inspiration.
This 8-week programme involves a blended approach that includes experiential exercises, formal meditation practices, mindfulness tips and techniques, and the realistic application of mindfulness in everyday life.
