Course Description

This course offers an online means of accessing the ‘gold-standard’ of mindfulness training programmes – Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction or MBSR. If you are interested in taking the MBSR course but you are unable to physically get to an ‘in-person’ course, then this is the course for you. Previous participants have reported the same range of benefits as those who have taken the in-person course. With the global pandemic this year, perhaps we may all be experiencing a brave new attitude and appreciation when it comes to the devices that are helping us stay connected with the people and projects that matters to us most.

The MBSR course is specifically designed to support us in developing a mindfulness approach to meeting the joys and challenges of our everyday lives. Together we create a safe and supportive environment where we will experience:

  • Guided instruction in core mindfulness meditation practices
  • Gentle stretching and mindful movement
  • Group discussions to grow our skills of awareness in everyday life
  • Experiential activities to explore our common human experience of stress reactivity
  • How mindfulness can support us in accessing our skills for creative responding in the face of difficulty
  • Developing a new, wiser, relationship with our thoughts, emotions and reactions.

The course schedule runs just as the in-person course, with 8 x 2.5 hours weekly sessions plus a full day of practice that are delivered live, with our computers, through a videoconferencing application. The application is quite straightforward to use and it allows us to interact, connect and engage with each other in authentic and meaningful ways. Just as we do on the ‘in-person’ courses. We will share practical activities, meditations and discussions, just as we do on the in-person course. Each week we have daily home practice to complete as we grow our mindfulness practice together over the 8 weeks. Please also be assured that you do not need to be ‘technologically-proficient’ to join the course: simply have basic computer skills, be willing to give it a try and show up for each session.
