Past Events

Below are previous Immeasurable Minds events

 

8-week Mindfulness for life (MBSR & MBCT combined course)

Please Note: you can also pay for this course by bank transfer, paypal cheque or cash and save the Eventbrite fee.

This course uses a combination of mindfulness meditation, body awareness, mindful movement and researched wellbeing tools and techniques to help you become happier, more mindful and less stressed.

In recent years this course has been the subject of controlled clinical research which has found beneficial effects, including stress reduction, relaxation, and improvements to quality of life. While MBSR has its roots in spiritual teachings, the program itself is secular.

This substantial program is shown to improve emotional wellbeing and be an effective treatment for anxiety or low-mood difficulties. It can also be helpful for those looking for an ‘edge’ in their work or creative performance. It is not only about elevation of low-mood it’s actually life enhancing practice for everyone that increases confidence, focus and happiness.

Mindfulness helps us to; open to life rather than struggle against it, respond to challenges rather than react, show compassion towards ourselves rather than judgement and appreciation rather than negativity – allowing us to feel more connected, open, and more deeply alive.

I am delighted to be offering this MBCT for life course – it is very similar to the 8-week course I’ve been teaching for the past seven years – but it has been updated via the latest research and best practice via the Oxford Mindfulness Centre. I am also teaching this new program as part of the Oxford MYRAID research study involving schools across the UK including Northern Ireland.

This is a certified course with 27 hours CPD for those of you who need that sort of thing! It is also a prerequisite for any mindfulness teacher training you are interested in, including mindfulness for children.

N.B – as well as the 8 weekly 2.5 hour sessions this programme also includes an all-day retreat date TBC. It also includes a comprehensive, supportive 125 page file and audio tracks for home practice. Home practice is an integral part of the course. Please note before you pay a deposit for this course you must communicate with me and fill out an application form – thank you. Email directly on mindfulmind@outlook.com.

It is very important that the mindfulness and wellbeing teacher you choose follows UK best practice guidelines and is registered and accredited. See Bridgeen’s listing on bemindful.org here.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Thank you.

March Mindful Self-Compassion Workshop

Perfect to treat your mum as a mother’s day (31 March) gift, this workshop provides space for calming, resting and healing – we also have a bit of fun too xx

Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we’re struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering. And as the Dalai Lama says, self-compassion is the first step toward compassion for others.

The workshop is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced practitioners. It fun, practical and experiential. I’ve been running this workshop for over four years and people regularly re-attend. 🙂

Sometimes it will be possible to transfer your ticket – subject to availability. Workshops in Winter months tend to sell out so transfer is limited, summer workshops usually have more availability.

It is possible to buy a ticket as a gift, the person just needs to give the name the ticket was booked under when they check in with me on the day.

Thank you, I look forward to seeing you.
