Its on you....Considerations & Requirements

Time Commitment:

  1. Commit to the above dates for the 8-week programme and the 1-day retreat.
  2. If there is a particular date that you know you are unavailable, I completely understand this and I am happy to work around this.

Home Practice:

  1. There is a daily mindfulness home practice requirement. This is something that I casually glossed over when signing up for my first MBSR course, however over time, with experience and now with in depth study, I can assure you, that those who develop a personal home practice get the most from the course and go on to benefit from keeping mindfulness alive in life after our course.
  2. Formal Mindfulness practices include The Body Scan, Mindful Movement and The Sitting Practice. Practice duration are 20-45 mins (audio and videos provided)
  3. Each week you will also receive a practice log and journal sheet to reflect on your daily mindfulness experiences and home practices.

Respecting our Sacred Space and Group Confidentiality:

  1. Respecting our sacred space in MBSR ensures that participants feel secure and supported, fostering an environment where individuals can openly explore their mindfulness journey without judgment or interruption.
  2. Upholding group confidentiality is key to establishing trust among participants. It allows everyone to share their experiences, thoughts, and emotions authentically, knowing that their privacy is valued, creating a foundation for open communication and collective growth.
