Introduction to Mindfulness Taster Session 24th November 2018 on Saturday 24th November 2018

This taster session is a unique opportunity for participants to learn both traditional Buddhist mindfulness as well as modern mindful approaches (MBSR and MBCT) as taught and designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the stress reduction clinic at the University of Massachusetts.

You will have the opportunity to learn about the history of mindfulness as taught by Buddha 2,600 years ago and learn more about the 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course and the 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course for depression.

During the taster session, we will explore several different mindfulness techniques including: ·

  • Mindfulness of Breathing meditation

  • Body Scan

  • Breathing Space

  • Mindful Movement

These techniques can help with managing stress, anxiety, negative thoughts and difficult moments in your everyday life.
