Mindfulness is an “operating manual” for the most important but least understood area of our life – the mind and how we think. Our thinking, unchallenged, can lead to distress and can badly affect our mental health. It is for this reason that mindfulness is now delivered within the IAPT service of the NHS. In this full weekend course, we will learn how to apply the transformative power of mindfulness to our busy life, helping us to de-stress, find a unique space of calm within, and readying ourselves for whatever challenges we face.
It also enables us to re-discover our innate ability to see the beauty in everyday life and to live with more ease. The benefits of mindfulness include better performance, heightened creativity, deeper self-awareness, and an increased ability to connect with others.
Helen Stephenson brings 40 years of experience in teaching mindfulness. She is also a trainer of mindfulness teachers and supervises and assesses mindfulness teachers within the NHS and in the private sector. Her humour, kindness, and knowledge will make attending this course a joyful and insightful experience.
