Mindfulness Based stress reduction


The beautiful garden room at the Old Coach House healing and well-being centre.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8 week course where you are asked to commit to attending a 2 hour group session once a week for 8 weeks and to practicing various mindfulness meditations every day for the length of the course. You will be given audio files to listen to in the form of mp3s and you will be asked to play them daily and to follow the instructions as best you can. Each week we will discuss how your practice has been that week and look at different stressful factors in all our lives and how we can use mindfulness to respond to them differently. You will be given some very short written exercises to do on some of the weeks which support the learning.
