Mindfulness for Stress

8 Mondays | 4th March - 22nd April 2024 | 7.15-9.30pm
In-person Breathing Space
Mindfulness is the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally, to things as they are.

There is a wealth of evidence in clinical trials to show that mindfulness can reduce stress and anxiety. We feel more in connection with the present moment, and more equipped to deal with life’s difficulties. Rather than pushing our challenges away, we turn towards the challenge with a kindly awareness. Mindfulness for Stress helps reduce anxiety, and live life more fully, with more agency. It helps cultivate resilience and greater confidence.

This course will take you through 8 weeks of the Breathworks Mindfulness for Stress programme. Each week, there will be a chance to learn meditation, and practice accessible and practical mindfulness tools and techniques. You will explore the week’s mindfulness topic; have the opportunity to share your experience in small, facilitated groups; and enjoy a tea break to connect with others. 

“There is nothing cold, analytical or unfeeling about [mindfulness]. The overall tenor of mindfulness practice is gentle, appreciative and nurturing. 

Another way to think of it would be 'heartfulness'. ”

Mindfulness for Stress is co-led by Breathworks accredited mindfulness teachers.
