Mindfulness is a popular subject often introduced as a way to improve wellbeing. The NHS has adopted mindfulness approaches in clinical care and in the workplace. Businesses, such as Google, are using mindfulness as part of their employee wellbeing. This MBSR course provides tools and techniques that can help us to be less reactive to life’s challenges, to be more aware and responsive, and to have more choice in dealing with difficulties. The sessions will be experiential and use a range of awareness practices including simple movement practices. The aim is to get in touch with thoughts, feelings and body sensations so we can respond with less stress. Mindfulness will be introduced from a secular perspective without assumption of prior knowledge or practice. As well as attending the eight MBSR sessions, students are expected to do 45 minutes of practice each day for six days a week during the course. Most of the benefit comes from regular practice.
