Mindfulness based stress reduction – fostering a regular personal practice – an experiential short course for health professionals

A growing number of health professionals are curious about incorporating mindfulness into their daily lives to sustain wellbeing and reduce reactivity. There is also considerable interest in recommending or providing mindfulness-informed practices to patient/client groups. To guide others in mindfulness-based practices, authentic facilitation comes from a grounded understanding through having established a sustained, regular, personal mindfulness practice.

This is a two-day practice-focussed course, which uses a modified framework of Jon Kabat Zinn’s renowned Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme. The course is designed for those new to meditation practice or who are early on in the development of a regular, personal practice.
