Course Introduction

Course Content

A growing amount of research indicates that mindfulness can assist in:

  • Getting a better night’s sleep
  • Reducing worry and feelings of anxiety
  • Improving tolerance of chronic pain
  • Lifting mood and appreciating what is good in life
  • Managing interpersonal conflict more effectively
  • Enhancing feelings of self-worth and compassion for others

Taught in a gentle and supportive atmosphere, this intensive mindfulness training involves eight two and a half hour sessions per week as well as a full day workshop on Saturday May 1st. Each participant is given a handbook of notes that support the learning in the class. These are supplemented with a number of guided meditation audio files that can be easily downloaded for practice at home. In each session you can expect a gentle mix of mindfulness guided meditation practice, short presentations on the theme for that week by the facilitator, as well as some simple group exercises and discussion.

At the end of the course participants come away with a set of practical tools that allow them to be kinder to themselves and cope better with the stresses and strains of everyday living.

Feedback from Previous MBSR Courses

"The course was brilliant, I loved the course and looked forward to attending it each week. I found it hugely beneficial, I learnt so much and found it to be very insightful. It was quality ‘me time’, time really well spent which will continue inevitably to have a positive impact on my life now and in the future. It has equipped me with new skills to deal with situations and look upon situations in a more real, accepting and open manner."

"The MBSR course was a much needed eye and mind opener for me at a time in my life when I required a new perspective and practice to manage anxiety and stress. I found that the classes on Mondays were a wonderful anchor for the week and I came out with much more than I entered with. Your approach, choice of words and examples and guiding presence was of immense benefit to me."
- Ian
"The teaching of this MBSR was of a high standard. Dominic has plenty of diverse knowledge and experience and was happy to share his own experiences with the group."
- Ann
"Amazing tutor, his depth of knowledge of mindfulness and his ability to relate it to everyday situations, his stories, his humour, his gentle teaching approach and his ability to spark a sense of curiosity within me about myself made the course so thoroughly enjoyable."
