NEW 8 Week Mindfulness Course starting January 2017!

jan-mindfulness-picI am pleased to announce that the next one of my 8 Week Mindfulness Courses will be running from 18 January 2017. This course will be held on Wednesday evenings from 7pm - 8.30pm in The House, 29-31 Monson Road, Tunbridge Wells.The cost is £128.00 for the 8 week course. This includes the group classes, guided meditations for home practice and all materials.What is Mindfulness?Mindfulness is a proven technique to help increase self-awareness, manage stress and improve wellbeing. It does this by bringing us into the present moment of our felt experience, using the breath and body to explore what is actually going on for us right now. In this way, we are better able to practice turning towards our experiences and ourselves with kindness and curiosity. We can then consider the kinds of actions and steps we can take, if any, that will help with the situations we find ourselves in.How does the course work?In this 8 week course, we will learn the core mindfulness meditation practices, as well as practice inquiry into our experiences. There will also be some teaching around the theory and neuroscience behind how mindfulness is believed to work. Each session will comprise meditation practices, inquiry and discussion. Home practice is a key component of mindfulness, and students will be provided with guided meditations to use at home.The course is taught by Lucy Lucas, a trained yoga and mindfulness instrictorWhat have others said about the course?"It’s been an excellent way to understand the whys and hows surrounding meditation""If you want to introduce mindfulness in to your life this is a great course.
