The next Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses in London Bridge begin in January 2016 and run for 8 weeks.

The evening course will run on Monday evenings 630-800pm. (dates and times yet to be finalised)

This course is an opportunity to discover the simplicity and strength of being with your thoughtts, feelings and sensations in a way that is more helpful and more flexible than we may be experiencing in our lives right now. If you are finding that you are being overwhelmed by pressures: whether internal or external, and that these pressures are affecting your day to day living, preventing you from living a life of fulfilment, then mindfulness could be of grreat benefit to you.

The MBSR course was created by American Jon Kabat-Zin in the 1980’s to help his chronic pain patients, at this time he was adopting meditation practices mainly. This soon developed into a more structured programme combining the Buddhist attitudinal qualities of non-judgement, non-striving, acceptance to name but a few, but allowing people to experience their stuff (pain, anxiety, depression, worry) in a more open and trusting way.

There are currently a plethora of articles, books and claims about mindfulness which has given rise to it being called MacMindfulness. I teach mindfulness in a way that helps each person find their way into it, slowly. Mindfulness is not a cure, it is not a quick-fix, but it is a beautiful process to learn  to be with all of our daily stuff in a new more helpful way.

You will learn your auto-pilot triggers, your thought chains, what trips you up, and then you have a choice of how to respond to things rather than our old well-worn habit of reacting. This will bring to your life a new sense of freedom: freedom from the tyranny of unhelpful patterns of thinking, of strong emotions and of physical discomfort or pain.
