Course Summary

Living in the modern world can sometimes be overwhelming.  As we strive to do more and more, our time seems to become less and less.  We can find ourselves living most of our time on autopilot, easily stuck in our thoughts, worries and problems.

So what is Mindfulness?

In simple terms, mindfulness is about bringing a sense of awareness and attention back into our lives.

It is a skill that can be learnt through a range of tools and techniques to help prevent overload and minimise anxiety, whatever challenges we may face.

It’s practical, easy to learn and - although rooted in Buddhist wisdom and meditative practices - it is far from religious.  Be assured that crossed legs and chanting are certainly not required!


Entry requirements

The course is aimed at those aged 19+ and there are no formal entry requirements for the experience.

Course Content

Do you often feel overwhelmed and out of control?  Maybe you long to restore a sense of calm and wellbeing in your life or maybe you simply feel that you need to build more resilience in dealing with the modern world?

On the taster session, you will sample some of the simple exercises that will be taught on our six-week course, which will enable you to start to develop a new and more helpful sense of awareness.

How will I be assessed?

At an introductory level, you will be taught a range of simple exercises that enable you to develop a new and more helpful sense of awareness. No prior knowledge is required - don’t worry, we will tell you and show you all you need to know. 

Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

Bring a mat, cushion and blanket, an open mind, a willingness to practise and YOU - that’s ALL!


What can I do after this course?
