CALM: An Introduction to Mindfulness

Address:
Fountain Way Hospital
Heathwood Entrance A

United Kingdom
Map and Directions

Description:

CALM stands for Cultivating Awareness and Living Mindfully.  This free course introduces you to a range of techniques for relaxing the body, calming the mind and living more fully in the present moment.  We can often live our lives on “auto-pilot” and react habitually to situations in unhelpful ways.  Mindfulness allows us to be more flexible in our response to the stresses of life, to be less driven and distressed by our thoughts and emotions, and to appreciate each moment of life more fully.

Topics covered include:

  • The skills of mindfulness, concentration and relaxation
  • Techniques for applying mindfulness to the breath, body, thoughts, feelings and everyday life
  • Practical tips for practicing mindfulness
  • Dealing with difficulties that arise in practicing

This is a taught course, run in a group format, so although there will be some group discussion it is up to you how much or how little you choose to take part.

Some of the practices are traditionally done lying down (though you can do them in a chair if you prefer) so it is a good idea to bring something comfortable to lie on.

This course will run for four weekly sessions on a Wednesday evening  between 6:30pm and 8:30pm. A guide to this venue can be found here: Heathwood Venue Guide
