What is mindfulness and why practice it?:
The Mindfulness Association describe mindfulness as a skill we can develop over time, which can deepen our sense of wellbeing and fulfilment. “It involves paying attention to what is occurring in our present moment experience, with an attitude of openness and non-judgemental acceptance. It is about coming back to our senses, being in touch with ourselves, with others and our surroundings.”
It promotes a way of being that helps us to take better care of ourselves and lead healthier lives. It also enables us to access inner resources for coping effectively with stress, difficulty and illness.
Possible benefits may be as follows:
Reduced tension, anxiety, stress, reactivity, improve communication, decision making, increase the ability to manage conflict, enhance clarity and creative thinking, achieve balance and develop resilience at home and at work, increase concentration, improve energy levels, promote physical and mental wellbeing.
The Mindfulness Based Living Course:
The Mindfulness Based Living Course is an eight week course consisting of eight classes, which are typically two hours long, preceded by an introductory class before the eight week course begins. A day of mindfulness practice is also typically included and will be used as a follow-up one month after the 8 week course ends.
“I think this course has been the most significant course I have ever undertaken. Its effects have been felt in all aspects of my life. Brilliant!”
“I feel I am more in tune with my emotions and less reactive, which has led to what I feel are better relationships and improved communication. I tend to carry less worry around with me at work and feel happier.”
“The MBLC is the most innovative thing CPFT has ever done. Something that is current and can benefit all band 3’s – 9’s.”
