MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION COURSE
with Rebecca Crane
We’re taking bookings now for the 2017 course, following the successful course in 2016.
This eight-week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course can help you find new ways to improve your general well-being and deal with life challenges such as stress, anxiety, chronic physical health problems and pain. People report having greater clarity on what is happening in their lives, improved problem-solving, better concentration, feeling more engaged and “alive”, feeling more energised, less anxious, sleeping better and having fewer physical symptoms of stress.
How does the course work?
You will meet as a group for eight weekly 2½ hour sessions plus a whole-day session of extended mindfulness practice on Saturday 10th June. Under the guidance of experienced mindfulness teacher, Rebecca Crane, you will learn about mindfulness and will be introduced to a range of mindfulness practices. These practices will help you gain awareness of your thoughts, moods, emotions and bodily sensations so that you can develop new ways of responding to stress and events in your life.
