Start your year with a new way to be!
Whether you are struggling because of the pandemic or life is okay for you, now is a great time to learn how to be mindful. Mindfulness is a fantastic tool to help you with anxiety, depression and feeling more in control of your mind. However, it is also a great way to enhance our feelings of joy and wellbeing. Mindfulness can give you the resilience you need to face the uncertainties of our time.
If you want to find out what Mindfulness is and enjoy your life more, this is for you. Mindfulness can not be learned easily from a book. It is something you learn in an experimental way. In a group, with an experienced teacher you get the feedback you need to know that what you are doing is right.
If you are struggling with the health fears this course will help you to feel more calm. Research has shown that Mindfulness can reduce anxiety dramatically.
If you feel depressed, because of the ongoing isolation and the uncertainty of the situation this course will be helpful, because you will meet likeminded people with similar experiences to yours. This in itself often helps to feel not quite so low. But more importantly Mindfulness has shown to be effective in helping people lifting their mood and enjoying their life more.
If you spend a lot of time ruminating and worrying Mindfulness can help you to learn how to step out of the loop of obsessive thinking and frees your mind to engage with the more nourishing aspects of life. It helps you to train your mind. Here is an overview of the course so you know exactly what you are signing up for:

Week 3 - The body as a place to stay present: Re-embodying, learn how to relax.
