About the Event
Finding Peace in a Frantic World - 8 Week Mindfulness Course
BLUE LIGHT CARD HOLDERS - Exclusively for all emergency services, NHS, social care sector, armed forces and all Blue Light Card holders.
Do you sometimes feel that your life is defined by frantic busyness, anxiety, stress and exhaustion? If so the Finding Peace course may be for you! The course is designed to help participants to settle their minds and enhance their natural happiness and contentment using mindfulness meditation.
The course is delivered in two hour sessions over eight weeks and introduces participants to mindful awareness through a range of practices that encourage us to bring curiosity to our experience and befriend the body.
Throughout the sessions we:
- develop mindfulness in everyday activities
- pay attention to our thoughts and feelings
- explore how we react or respond to difficulties
- consider how we relate to ourselves and others
- review how we can develop a healthier balance in our lives.
The sessions are a mix of mindfulness practices, input from the teacher and opportunities to share in small groups and the group as a whole.
The course is taught by Julia Lofts and runs for 8 weeks on a Saturday morning from 09:00 - 11:00 via Zoom videoconferencing - Starting on Saturday 23rd April 2022.
Because we recognise that your working patterns may make committing to a two hour session at the same time evey week difficult or even impossible, we are running two courses at the same time - one on a Wednesday evening and another on a Saturday morning to allow you to switch to the alternative day for one or two sessions if the need arises.
The cost of the course is usually £150 - However Blue Light Card holders are entitled to a 90% discount on this price using discount code BLUELIGHTAPR22 meaning you only pay £15 for the full 8 week course.
On completion of the course you will be elgible to attend our weekly on-going program of on-line mindulness practice sessions and events.
