15 Aug In-depth training in Manchester: Nov 2016
Mindfulness Foundation weekend in Manchester
Mindfulness is an inherent capacity we all have to be aware of our present moment experience in a kind and non-judgmental way. It can be developed through systematic training and promotes a way of being that helps us take better care of ourselves and others, and lead healthier lives. It enables us to access inner resources for coping effectively with stress, low mood and illness.
The Mindfulness Association offers a training pathway that begins with a one-weekend foundation course and is followed by the three weekends of Mindfulness Practitioner Certificate Course.
The full Mindfulness Training is strongly experiential and offers a step by step journey into a deepening experience of being present and accepting ourselves as we are. It has been developed by Rob Nairn, one of the world pioneers in presenting Buddhist philosophy and practice in a way that is accessible to the Western mind. The training therefore includes teachings in Western psychological language that provide a context for understanding what is happening in our minds as we practice and work with the challenges that arise.
