Code: ESC/19/61 Mindfulness 8 week course (EVENT FULL)

This innovative eight week Mindfulness course offers new ways to support your resilience and thrive in busy and challenging work settings. Over the last twenty years, the way we work has changed enormously while workloads have simultaneously increased. Our bodies and brains aren’t designed to sit at desks, read screens, and keep up 24/7 with messages. Mindfulness moves us out of the Twitter-sphere by focussing on our bodies and breath, which act as a barometer to signal the initial signs of stress and distress. If we catch stress signatures early enough, we can make choices to act in ways beneficial to ourselves, our clients, and the service we work for.


The course involves learning a range of meditation practices, participating in reflective exercises and a small amount of teaching from neuroscience and cognitive psychology. It is first and foremost an experiential course and not an academic course. We learn through practising mindfulness together, finding ways to acknowledge how things actually are as opposed to how we would prefer things to be - this can be challenging, but also opens up a choice on how best respond to stress and difficulty.


The approach works through its practice and benefits are usually felt by those who are able to commit to all sessions of the course including daily meditation and other activities during the course.
