If you suffer from stress, anxiety, mood swings or if you just want to learn how to feel happier and more content then Mindfulness is for you.
“Mark’s techniques helped me reset completely after a hugely stressful time and I will be forever grateful.”
This six week course includes the key aspects of Mindfulness: meditation and enquiry.
These techniques are very simple yet have profound impacts on our lives when we start to put them into action. In each class we will start by practicing simple meditation techniques that help us to step out of our thinking minds and back into the present moment. A regular practice of Mindfulness meditation, even only 10 minutes a day, increases our feelings of happiness and contentment throughout our day and reduces our negative reactions to ‘stressful’ events.
After meditating we will explore the types of thoughts that cause us to feel stress and learn to use enquiry to turn negative, painful thinking into positive patterns that enhance our daily lives and leave us feeling relaxed and enthusiastic.
“Very practical tips instead of spiritual ‘guidance’.”
Each 90 minute session will focus on a different aspect of Mindfulness and will include discussion and feedback about your own experiences. You will be fully supported to develop a practice that works for you.
