About this event

Mindfulness-based activities are often used by practitioners to help children relax, reduce stress and process their feelings. In order to do this successfully, it is important to first understand its use and impact before initiating activities in your own settings.

This certified course will consist of eight two-hour evening classes, which will explore mindfulness, share a broad range of techniques and explore the long-term impact of mindfulness practice.

This course will focus on you as an individual, and provide you with an understanding and first-hand experience that will be valuable when considering how to implement a mindfulness programme in your own setting.

Weekly sessions:
Week One (2 May) – What is mindfulness and why practise it?
Week Two (9 May) – The body as a place to stay present
Week Three (16 May) – Introducing mindfulness support
Week Four (23 May) – Working with distraction
Week Five (30 May) – Exploring the undercurrent
Week Six (6 June) – Attitude of the observer
Week Seven (13 June) – Self-acceptance
Week Eight (20 June) – A Mindfulness-based life.

Please note that this course cannot be booked as individual sessions. Places cannot be transferred to another delegate after the course starts.
