8 WEEK MINDFULNESS COURSE (MBSR)
Do you find you
- spend a lot of time worrying about what might happen?
- are unable to sleep at night because you are ruminating about past events or possible future outcomes?
- have difficulty with feelings of stress, anxiety and sadness?
- get angry easily and then act on your frustrations?
- feel overwhelmed?
Many people feel this way. As our busy lives speed up, more and more pressures are placed upon us and at times we can feel overwhelmed. This course gives you the tools to create a new relationship to stress and to life's inevitable ups and downs. The course will run for 8 weeks from the 20th September 2019, meeting at 1.30pm until 3.30pm at Lola y Leon, Sitges (near Barcelona, Spain).
Dates: September: 30, October: 7, 14, 21, November: 4, 11, 18, 25. **No session 28th October.
The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course is seen as the "Gold standard" in Mindfulness courses, and is very practical. You will learn about what stress is, why we have it and what you can do to help yourself. Training the mind to notice difficult thoughts and emotions, and rather than buying into them, you learn to allow them to come and go. From this new perspective life's challenges feel more surmountable. It also promotes better attention skills, more compassion towards yourself and others, and less reactivity.
Overall, the course is often helpful in dealing with an ongoing difficulty – the problem may not change but the way we can learn to relate to it differently.
Both the downloadable meditations that accompany the course and the extensive Participants Handbook are included in the price. We will meet once a week for a 2 hour group session over 8 weeks to reflect on the work done at home, do a meditation practice together and explore the next week's theme. Like most things in life, you get out what you put in, and home practice forms a large part of the programme. You will need to commit yourself to building in and practicing each day both the meditations and the mindful practices.
Through the group experience we will share our A-ha! moments together in a safe and welcoming environment. Emma is an experienced Mindfulness teacher. You can read some testimonials about her HERE
