Managing stress is a skill. Modern science has shown us that the ancient practice of mindfulness can help us to learn this skill, with the effects lasting a lifetime.
Who is the six-week Mindfulness for Stress Management course for?
For anyone who has a sense that their lives could be more easeful. It is very common for people to suffer from various symptoms of stress associated with work, finances, physical health problems, family and relationships, self-image, loss, past trauma, mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, and social anxiety.
This course may also be for those who simply want to boost their resilience and learn to be more aware and present using mindfulness and meditation. All participants can find greater joy and well-being in their lives. The course is a skills-based training and not a therapy group, taught within a supportive and friendly group setting.
