MBSR : 8 WEEK MINDFULNESS PROGRAMME

Start : Sunday 24th Feb 2019
Time: 10am-12.30pm
The MBSR program is an eight-week course designed to empower participants to take an active role in the management of their own health and well being. The core skill that you will learn is mindfulness – a way of paying attention on purpose and non-judgmentally, to what goes on in the present moment in your body, mind and the world around you. There is a huge body of research, recognising the benefits of a  mindfulness practice. These benefits often include: 
 
  • An increased ability to cope more effectively with short and long term stress
  • An increased ability to relax and experience calm
  • Greater energy and enthusiasm for life
  • Heightened self-confidence
  • A greater ability to manage both anxiety and depression
  • Increases emotional resilience and ability to focus
 
While everyone’s experience is unique, the majority of those who completed the programme, report lasting physical and psychological benefits.  The course involves a 2.5 hour class, once a week, for 8 weeks and an experiential all-day workshop during the course.  
The cost of the course is: 350 Euro which includes 3 x recordings of guided practices, course handouts, weekly classes and the day long workshop.  
 
The course will be co-facilitated by Sarah-Jane Burton and Norah Twomey, both of whom are MBSR certified Trainers and experienced meditation practitioners. Sarah-Jane comes from a corporate background and was a course participant herself, in the past. Norah is a qualified General and Mental Health Nurse who currently works within the Mental Health setting where she teaches MBSR and is also a qualified yoga instructor.
