This Live Online course is an opportunity for beginners to get their first experience of mindfulness or a great chance for mindfulness practitioners to refresh their practice, dive deeper into mindfulness or prepare themselves for a TT1 Foundation Course with us at Mindful Academy Solterreno or some other organization. As well as the 8 x weekly 2.5 hour live sessions, there will also be a 1/2 day silent retreat between weeks 6&7 or 7&8 (also online)
We have great feedback from former students telling us they have thoroughly enjoyed the group setting and being able to have new insights and understanding into their life when lead by a Senior MBSR teacher. During the course, even when connecting online, the group forms a sense of connection and co-journeying. The course will teach new ways to handle our body sensations, thoughts and emotions. It develops skills that make us better equipped in taking care of our wellbeing, and managing stress and adversities more effectively – be they physical, mental, social or emotional.
Throughout the course you will be developing skills that make it easier to be with whatever we are experiencing, both the positive and negative, pleasant or unpleasant. This allows us to respond to situations more mindfully and from a state of presence rather than mindlessly reacting.
During the course you will learn that there are generally two ways we can handle difficulties, either we change the situation or we change how we deal with the situation. And often times the former is not an option so it’s very beneficial to learn new ways of relating to difficulties.
This 8-week course 2.5hr format is automatically accepted as entry criteria to the Mindful Academy Teaching Training pathway for Mindfulness MBSR Teachers.
