This 8-week course is based on the renowned Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme, taught in leading institutions worldwide and originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at UMASS Medical College to support chronically ill patients who were not responding to to traditional treatments.
Regular Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction practices have been proven over the past thirty years to offer the following benefits:
· Improved capacity to deal with stress and challenging situations, both short and long-term
· Increased capacity to be more present and aware in everyday life
· Improved ability to focus and pay attention
· Improved problem solving ability
· Improved productivity and efficiency
· Decreased physical and psychological symptoms
· Improved sense of self-worth
· More responsive and less reactive to daily challenges
· Improved ability to manage chronic pain and illness.
Mindfulness meditation has been quantified as having lasting positive effects on wellbeing, quality of life, performance & happiness as demonstrated by a plethora of academic research across fields such as psychology, neuroscience and medicine.
