Who is this course for?Anyone with an interest in finding out more about the benefits of mindfulness and how it can help us feel less trapped by habits of the mind’s autopilot and open us to a new way of living.
What the course will cover: Mindfulness can help us to take a more balanced approach to our negative emotions so that feelings are neither exaggerated nor suppressed. Mindfulness is a non-judgmental mind state whereby we can observe our thoughts and feelings as they are, rather than trying to suppress or deny them.
Developing self-compassion involves treating ourselves with understanding and warmth rather than ignoring our feelings or being self-critical. We will be able to recognise that being imperfect, making mistakes and experiencing other challenges are all part of life and if we can learn to be compassionate toward ourselves, we can reduce our suffering.
This introductory course will offer the opportunity to find ways to observe our negative thoughts and emotions with openness and clarity, being held in mindful awareness. As you begin to explore ways to remain present, rather than re-living or pre-living experiences, you can benefit from a greater sense of control and awareness. Living as a human ‘being’ rather than a human ‘doing’.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:• Recognised the benefits of adopting mindfulness practice• identified ways to observe negative thoughts and emotions without becoming self-critical• practised some mindfulness techniques to help you relax
