One-Day 'Introduction To Mindfulness' Workshops.

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a programme for reducing stress that has been widely approved by the international healthcare community. The course we teach is based on the MBSR course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in the USA, and the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale at the Universities of Cambridge and Toronto. The two approaches are very closely related.

Rooted in ancient traditions of meditation, MBSR teaches simple ways to cultivate awareness and relate to thoughts and feelings more effectively, and has been used for over thirty years to help with stress and anxiety, chronic health problems, and general well-being. Clinical research has consistently shown that mindfulness is helpful for working with a wide range of conditions, as well as for optimising well-being. The MBCT course is recommended by the National Institute For Clinical Excellence for use in the NHS.

Our MBSR courses and 'Introduction to Mindfulness' workshops are taught by Ed Halliwell, unless otherwise stated. Ed is co-author of The Mindful Manifesto: How Doing Less and Noticing More Can Help Us Thrive In A Stressed Out World and author of the Mental Health Foundation's Be Mindful Report. Ed also writes regularly for The Guardian and other publications on meditation and well-being. Find out more about Ed.
