Online – Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World

February 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am - February 24, 2021 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

£220

The book Mindfulness: a Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Professor Mark Williams and Dan Penman outlines an eight-week ‘self-help’ adaptation of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy that is also highly suitable for teaching in non-clinical settings such as workplaces, with student groups and in public classes. Many mindfulness teachers are finding this to be a well-tuned and useful course for such contexts as it can be delivered in 60-90 minute classes and asks less of participants in terms of ‘formal’ home practice than MBCT / MBSR. This two-day workshop will explore in detail what needs to be taken into consideration when delivering this course in non-clinical settings. Training will be provided in the distinctive pedagogies of this course and full curriculum materials and handouts for teaching the course will be provided to participants; they are not available by other means.
