MBLC - Mindfulness-Based Living Course 28th September - 16th November 2017 (Time: 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm)

Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC)

                 ‘A Mindfulness Journey’

Mindfulness is an inherent capacity we all have to be aware of our present moment experience in a kind and non-judgmental way.  This course will take you on a step by step experiential journey of Mindfulness in a secular context with a view to integrating it into your everyday life.  Cultivating the skills of Mindfulness help us live more consciously and lead happier and healthier lives. It enables us to access inner resources to support us with the challenges we all meet as we live our lives.  It has been proven to reduce stress, improve mental and physical health, enhance relationships, aid sleep and boost vitality.

This course has been developed by Rob Nairn, a world-renowed Mindfulness teacher and the Mindfulness Association.  It provides a map from which to explore our minds with kindness and curiosity.  At heart it is about discovering our potential and flourishing in our lives.

The course runs for 8 weeks and also includes a day of practice.  Each week builds on the previous week moving through the following themes;

  • Start where we are.
  • The body as a place to stay present.
  • Introducing mindfulness support.
  • Working with distraction.
  • Exploring the undercurrent and the attitude of the observer.
  • Cultivating self-acceptance
  • A Mindfulness Based life

 

A course manual and audios of the practices are included.  Email or phone support is available from the tutor and reading is recommended.   It is for anyone beginning their journey or for those who wish to deepen their practice.  Places are limited.
