• The 8-week MBSR course is based on the original work of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s highly acclaimed Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program and the current programs taught at the Massachusetts Medical Centre, Bangor University Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP) in the UK and around the world. 

    Each week you will take part in either a group 2.5 hour session (1 hour or 1.5 hours for 1-1 or 1 - 2) via Zoom or Skype with Kathy Ward, Senior International Mindfulness Trainer, Teacher, and Supervisor, or depending on locations, one of the accredited International training team. 

    We will guide and support you through the learning of the mindfulness course. Practice mp3's and our extensive Participants workbook will either be handed out to you at the start of the course or be emailed to you. Like most things in life, you get out what you put in and home practice forms a large part of the course and you will need to commit yourself to spend up to one hour 6 out of 7 days a week for the duration of the course.

    This includes -

    • Listening and practicing using the supplied mp3 recordings (recommended practice 30 to 45-minutes per day, 6 out of 7 days per week)
    • Reading the Participants Workbook
    • Reflecting and optional journaling of your direct experience
    • Including some informal mindfulness practices in your daily life to make them come alive and support resilience, health and wellbeing

    Please note there is little opportunity or time in either the group or 1-1 option to discuss any current or past personal problems not related to the session or home practices. If necessary these should be pursued through individual work with a counselor or other appropriate support.
