Introducing Mindfulness is an evidence-based course which offers a brief taste of mindfulness practice and the theory behind it.
We will explore some key mindfulness themes and practices in ways that may support you find more ease and enjoyment in everyday life and work.
It is delivered in an accessible format through 3 weekly one-hour sessions. The course is engaging and experiential and taught live on Zoom.
You will also be invited to do a short daily ‘home practice’ of 10-15 minutes each day to help support your learning. Full course resources are provided.

What to Expect from the Course
What are the benefits?
Even though this course involves only 3 sessions, you may begin to notice some of the following benefits within a relatively short period of time:
A sense of having more space or time in your day
Greater appreciation of what is pleasant and enjoyable in life
An ability to resource yourself in more challenging moments such as distractedness, stress or anxiety.
An ability to begin to respond throughout your day with greater clarity, compassion in ways that align with what’s important to you
What to expect during the 3 session course?
Each week we explore a core theme:
Week 1 - Understanding the mind’s natural tendency to be scattered and to wander and how we can train our attention.
Week 2 - Exploring different ways of being and knowing and how we can learn to use these different modes to help us flourish over time.
Week 3 - Recognising the difference between reacting and responding and developing ways to create the space to make skillful choices.
What is the commitment between sessions?
Each session builds on learning and experience from the previous session and you will be invited to continue to practise the sessions’ themes between sessions.
Like any new skill, the real learning and understanding happens through regular practice.
You will be given around 10 -15 minutes of ‘home practice’ each day‘ which will usually include following a short recording of a guided practice as well as building ‘informal’ mindfulness practice into your everyday activities.
We will share our experiences of home practice together in each weekly session.

Here's What a Recent Participant Had to Say
I always thought that I was ok, yes certain things would make me feel out of control, by that I mean giving me a nervous tummy or the feeling of a cat on a hot tin roof. The Introducing Mindfulness course has changed my life. Ok, I still have those feelings but I now have learnt, with the help of mindfulness, how to get those feelings under control. Mindfulness works for me and I feel so much better for it.
