MBLC Course

Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC)

The course consists of 8 2-hour sessions, weekly. An introduction session is also held prior to the actual course and participants are also given the option to attend a full day retreat towards the end of the course.


The sessions will consist of Mindfulness meditation practices and some discussions arising from these as well as some other exercises. There will be no requirement for any discussion about your own personal circumstances, and this is actually not encouraged. 

The weekly themes are:

  • Introductory Session – What is Mindfulness and Why Practice It?

  • Week 1 – Start Where We Are

  • Week 2 – The Body as a Place to Stay Present

  • Week 3 – Introducing Mindfulness Support

  • Week 4 – Working with Distraction

  • Week 5 – Exploring the Undercurrent

  • Week 6 – Attitude of the Observer•Day of Practice

  • Week 7 – Self-acceptance

  • Week 8 – A Mindfulness Based Life

  • Follow Up – The Rest of Your Life

Our experience, and that of previous participants, is that Mindfulness practice can somehow result in a sense of there being MORE time in the day. As with the learning of any new skill, it takes a certain amount of dedication and time. It is only 8 weeks of your life, so what have you got to lose? We hope that if you choose to commit to a course you will find out, for yourself that it was worth it.
