A Six Week Mindfulness Course We have a six week mindfulness course held on Wednesday evenings starting in February. Mindfulness may be new to you, but itís been around for 2,500 years and has been practiced by millions of people around the world. Itís a way of finding some peace in a busy life, or even letting go of anxiety and depressing thoughts.

Who is the Course For?
If you find all the varied offerings of Ďmindfulnessí to be confusing but know that it has the potential to help you, then this course is for you. Perhaps youíve been put on the waiting list for counselling by your GP and want to get started in the meantime. Or maybe youíve read some books or listened to podcasts and want to know more. Thereís nothing quite like time spent with a knowledgable teacher to bring it all to life.

Mindfulness is a way of dealing with the vagaries of life, of coming up with an appropriate response and reacting less so that our feeling of peace increases. Itís a simple technique however can take a little practice to master, but itís been proven to help ease the symptoms of depression as effectively as medication
