In 1979 American psychologist Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn created a secular, therapeutic programme to help people recover from trauma. Drawing on ancient teachings which have stood the test of time his programme has taught people all over the world how to quieten their minds and listen to their own inner-voice of wisdom in order to re-frame their understanding of themselves, their own abilities and their relationships with the world and other people.
Week by week we will look at how to harness our consciousness so that we can actively cultivate qualities that build our emotional resilience and understand why we react in the way we do. Participants will be given tools to use and will be encouraged to practice them during the week.
For the course to achieve its maximum potential the participants will be expected to carry out different practice in between classes.
Students will only require a journal (this can be a small exercise book) and something to lie on such as a towel or yoga mat.
