8 week mindfulness course

The gold-standards of mindfulness training are the eight week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and the eight week Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course, developed by Segal, Williams and Teasdale. These two courses between them account for the largest portion of the considerable research data that has grown up around mindfulness in recent years.  The programme we typically teach is an amalgamation of these. It is designed to help participants learn new ways of handling difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods.

 

The training enables participants to see things differently, undoing mental and physical knots and tensions. It can increase their sense of personal confidence, of having more options and more strength to face the different challenges in their lives.

 

Most people completing eight week mindfulness courses report that they gain lasting benefits, such as:

We deliver these courses in a variety of formats:

We are open to exploring other formats as well.

 

Whatever format one chooses, it is essential that participants undertake to do between 20 and 30 minutes of homepractice each day for six days of each week that the course runs.

client comment

"Michael's extensive knowledge and wisdom about the theory and practice of mindfulness was manifest throughout our eight-week training.  His calm demeanour and groundedness helped to anchor our learning experience.  But even more than that, I know that Michael has given us some powerful tools, grounded in cutting-edge scientific research. That is what makes it so exciting."
