Developing Mindfulness

Date/Time: Tuesday 25 April, 2017 - 5:00pm

Date/Time End: Tuesday 25 April, 2017 - 6:00pm

Venue:

Mindfulness is the art of directing your attention in a kindly and non-judgemental way. Studies have shown that it can be very helpful if you are prone to worrying about the future or find it hard to let go of situations or events once they have passed. In mindfulness we try to keep our mind on the present.

The aim of the programme is to introduce you to the skill of mindfulness. It is a skill that requires practice, so we meet together to do some gentle exercises and our discussion is confined to information about those practices. You will be asked to do a daily five-minute practice of mindfulness of the breath and you will be encouraged to develop your awareness of the theme of each session in your own time during the week following.

The rolling programme consists of six sessions, focusing on a different theme each week and repeating throughout term-time from January to May (no sessions in Easter break), so you can join at anytime. Once you have completed six sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to stay on and repeat them should you wish to (providing there are spaces). This may help you to maintain a mindfulness practice.

To enrol on this course you will first need to meet briefly with a Wellbeing Service practitioner (arranged when booking).

Every Tuesday during term-time until May 16.
