Start the new year, with a better understanding of yourself by participating in this practical four week course, developed from the internationally acclaimed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program.
Under the guidance of Dr Sharn Rocco, a practitioner and teacher of meditation for over a decade, you'll be invited to learn strategies for bringing mindful awareness to the demands, routines and relationships of daily life and explore how practicing mindfulness can reduce stress and increase energy, clarity, confidence and resilience.
Each weekly class includes a combination of interactive and experiential learning and instruction. What you learn, experience and practice in each class prepares you for practice throughout the week ahead and provides a foundation for the following class.
A course handbook and guided practice recordings are provided to support your learning and practice throughout the course and beyond. The handbook includes a week-by-week overview of the course content, space to record notes and reflections and a weekly list of the recommended on-going practices.
If you've been wondering what mindfulness is and how to practice it or if you think meditation might be good for you and would like to try it or get back to it, this is the course for you.
