Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

MBSR for increasing Wellbeing and Managing Stress
 - End the week on a postive note!

Tutors: Carolyn Drake, and Annie Akasati McAuley 
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next start dates: Friday 21 September 2018

  • Discover valuable tools to reduce stress and improve your quality of life
  • A life-enhancing exploration of our individual, direct experience
  • Supportive group atmosphere and trainers
  • The original mindfulness course, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn; open to all

What does this course cover?

On this course we cultivate present-moment awareness with the help of guided meditation practices, practical exercises on relevant themes, inquiry and discussion. Participants explore their responses to both the joys and the challenges of life; finding new strategies for dealing with difficulties.

We all know the benefits of physical exercise on our wellbeing, however our states of mind often have just as much impact on how we feel as our physical health. Coming on a mindfulness course is a valuable opportunity to train the mind, cultivating greater focus, clarity and calm both within the sessions and in our everyday lives, with the help of guided audio recordings for home practice.

Please note that while much of the course content for MBSR and MBCT courses is similar, MBSR includes a greater focus on communication and more mindful movement
