MINDFULNESS MBSR COURSE

SO WHAT EXACTLY IS RESILIENCE?

ABOUT THE COURSE

Participants completing an MBSR programme report having:

 

  • more energy and enthusiasm

  • more ability to relax

  • more self-confidence

  • greater clarity and concentration

  • improved ability to handle stressful situations

 

FURTHER INFORMATION

There are over 100 randomised control studies on MBSR showing its effectiveness in building the brain to:  

 

  • increase productivity

  • sharpen focus

  • improve sleep

  • relieve pain

  • manage anxiety

  • cope with illness

  • feel a deeper sense of peace

 

All of this builds resilience and helps your respond better to life's little knocks.

When you have resilience, you know how to gather inner strength to resource you in the face of challenges. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from setbacks such as disappointments, heartache, uncertainty and loss. When you are depleted of resilience, you might dwell on difficulties, feel swamped or turn to unhealthy coping strategies such as withdrawing or binging.

 

Resilience is not about having a thick skin or blunting your emotions. Resilience will not make your problems go away or stop you feeling anything. Resilience gives you flexibility to step back to get perspective, see beyond difficulties, and find enjoyment in life no matter what gets thrown your way.

 

It is not your knowledge or ability of what you do in life that brings fulfilment, it is your psychological willingness to embrace all of life – including the difficulties that are inevitable in everyone’s lifetime, for example: bereavement, ill-health, and life changes you would prefer not to happen.

Resilience is the courage to face the stress head on, not to see mistakes as failure, having clarity of mind to see solutions, adjusting to change with dignity, collaborating well with others, and enjoying your successes with ownership and humility.

 

Mindfulness is a proven way to enhance your resiliency by strengthening your natural ability to enjoy life and open up to your potential, recognise emotions in yourself and others and to be skilled at managing them.  

PROGRAMME

  • Week 6. Mindful interconnections. Bringing mindfulness to your relationships and communications with others. Working with difficult situations by knowing your feelings and expressing them skillfully.

  • All day session. Deepening mindfulness. Developing mindfulness over a day of silence. Widening your awareness and self-knowledge.   .

  • Week 7. Being your own encouraging coach. Develop a healthier sense of confidence by taking care of yourself.

  • Week 8. Bringing it all together in your own personal plan. The beginning of the rest of your mindful life.

MBSR INVOLVES:

  • Learning to meditate in the sessions within a group of up to 12 people (you can also enquire about private MBSR tuition to do the course 1-2-1 or with a couple of friends).

  • Practicing meditation at home every day.

  • Doing simple home practice reflections on your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences.

  • Talking about your experience of meditation in the group sessions. However, there is never pressure to share your experiences and you are welcome to be an active listener rather than participating through speaking.

  • Doing gentle physical movement. Please let the teacher know if you have any physical limitations.

WHY CHOOSE US?

"There is convincing evidence that certain ways of looking at oneself and at the world can predispose a person to illness, while other ways seem to promote resilience and health... MBSR often has a long-lasting and profoundly positive influence on their view of themselves and of the world."
