Mindfulness – 8 week course
Events Date: Tuesdays from 17 September, 5-7pm | Location: Zion Community Resource Centre, Stretford Road
Research is showing that mindfulness meditation has a whole host of benefits for our minds and bodies. It can help calm the mind, improve sleep, and help us cope better with chronic pain and life’s challenges.
We all know what it’s like when stress sets in. Life seems harder, anxiety levels rise, and our sleep and social life starts to suffer.
Our 8-week course (2 hours a week) is led by Ruth, our qualified mindfulness practitioner. She aims to improve quality of life through the tools learned on the course.
What will I get from the course?
Mindfulness isn’t just about helping us through life’s troughs and challenges. It’s also a really great tool to help us get the most out of the good times too. A regular mindfulness practice can help improve focus, increase our sense of wellbeing, and help us feel more connected to our friends and family.
After attending our Mindfulness courses, people report a reduction in stress levels, better sleeping patterns, reduced anxiety, as well as improved mood and overall wellbeing.
What will I learn on the course?
Over the eight week course, individuals will learn ways to apply mindfulness to all aspects of their lives. Participants will learn a variety of techniques which will help train their brains to be more present, and hopefully, reduce some of the suffering associated with stress – whatever its source.
As part of the learning on this course, individuals will be required to establish their own mindfulness practice outside of the course sessions.
No prior experience of meditation is required.
