What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a simple and powerful practice which teaches you how to give your full attention to what is happening while it is happening, in a bid to better handle the pressures of everyday life.
Practicing mindfulness builds confidence, resilience, strengthens your immune system, reduces stress, rest-lessness, anxiety and helps you make better choices in life.
By learning and practicing mindfulness meditations, you can see situations more clearly and react to them in a more mindful, open and calm manner. Practices help you to overcome challenging life situations more easily.
Mindfulness seems to allow pain sufferers to turn down the volume on pain signals and relate to their pain differently. Practicing helps to reduce the symptoms of most stress-based illnesses (IBS, high blood pressure, diabetes… etc.).
About the course
The mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) course consist of a theoretical and a practical part.
We learn about how we can become more resilient, confident, calm, more open, how we can reduce our pain and suffering.
From session to session we practice different mindfulness meditations.
We discuss our present mindfulness experience and share our experience on developing our individual mindfulness practice - sharing is optional. (No individual problems are discussed at the course.)
