Introduction to Mindfulness, Course code K0310GXPEA

To introduce the concept and practise of Mindfulness and associated benefits.

What will I study?

This is an introductory short programme that primarily focuses on what the practise of Mindfulness is; why we do it and the benefits of consistent practice. Students get to practice various different Mindfulness techniques over the 5 weeks. Mindfulness techniques are designed to help people manage emotional pain and was developed to help people cope with feelings associated with anxiety and depression. I teach the psychology behind the practice through exploration of a variety of relevant psychological theory that underpin Mindfulness; how our thoughts create our reality and so-on. This leads into how our thoughts shape our experiences and how, by changing our thoughts, our experiences also change.  I relate these ideas to the Law of Attraction and how we can use Mindfulness and other strategies to begin to create the life we really want. This introductory course was very well received in its first run out. People found it impactful and found it really helped to teach them how they could begin to feel empowered again.
