Mindfulness for well being
About the course:
Mindfulness is being more aware of thoughts, feelings and actions moment by moment. By building our ability to be mindful more of the time, we can begin to respond to our inner life, our experiences and to other people in more helpful ways, rather than reacting in habitual ways which may not be helpful. The course supports people to develop mindfulness through practising sitting and movement meditation, and through discussion and inquiry into experience.
