New: Essentials Training – Cultivating and Conveying Mindfulness
February 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - February 26, 2023 @ 6:00 pm GMT
The Essentials is a 5-day training open to anyone with a interest in mindfulness practice who wants to learn more about mindfulness, either to enrich your personal practice or as a first step towards leading mindfulness practices. After this course you should have more insight into your own mindfulness practice, be able to lead others in short mindfulness practices, and consider going on to develop skills to teach mindfulness.
This entry level training, delivered in retreat conditions, seeds the essence of every day mindful living and mindfulness-based teaching: how to become more embodied, how to relate more skilfully to the world and other people, and how to guide yourself and others in mindfulness practice. With guidance from highly experienced trainers, you will explore mindfulness of body, mind, feeling tone and experience, while wider issues such as trauma sensitivity, unconscious bias, societal and environmental issues will be woven through each day. This is an essential first step in an extended training programme, currently under development in collaboration with Bangor University, to have wider applicability and greater accessibility.
The course will be taught in two modules: 16th-19th February and 24th-26th February 2023
