Teaching Mindfulness for Health & Well-Being in Dorset

In this increasingly busy world of ours, with stress and information overload, developing a daily mindfulness practice can restore calmness and balance to your everyday life.

Mindfulness has been subjected to huge medical research recently which has shown that having a regular practice increases our ability to handle stress, strengthens our immune system, helps us to cope with pain, lowers our blood pressure, and improves our concentration and memory… it even increases positive thoughts and emotions. So how do we do it?

An ideal way to learn mindfulness is in an 8 week course within a group setting. Each week you will learn specifically developed meditation practices designed to help slow down brain chatter and automatic habitual reactions. You will learn the simple core practices of formal meditation (mindfulness of breath) and also some shorter coping exercises (informal) designed to bring mindfulness into your everyday life.

As you start to practice mindfulness you may notice all sorts of changes in your daily life. You may become less reactive and more likely to ‘pause and breathe’ when something challenging comes up, this in turn helps you to make good choices that will support and nourish your own well-being.

The next Dorset Mindfulness course starts on Monday September 18th at the Quaker Meeting House, Shaftesbury, Dorset SP7 8BB
