Since the pandemic over the last year many of us may have felt isolated and may have experienced anxiety and stress. Mindfulness may be a good transition back from lockdown as we learn to be more present and less distracted.
8 WEEK MINDFULNESS BASED LIVING COURSE (MBLC)
with Lorraine Harris,
Associate Tutor for the Mindfulness Association.
Date: Wednesday 9th June 7.15 to 8.45pm to 28th July 2021
Venue: The Swansea Wellbeing Centre, Walter Road, Swansea, SA1 5PQ
Participants will be taught progressive skills in Mindfulness through presentation and guided practice. A strong emphasis is placed on experiential learning, and there will be home assignments each week that include regular mindfulness practice, daily exercises and some journal writing.
Mindfulness is defined as knowing what is happening, while it is happening, without preference. In the beginning we notice how our attention is like a butterfly flitting from one thought to the next. So we start by slowing down and settling our mind through regulating our breathing and counting. We then introduce practices that ground us allowing our attention to drop out of our heads and into the sensory awareness of the body. We then learn to rest in the present moment getting used to disengaging from our habits of compulsive doing. And then, when we notice our attention drifting away into thinking, we learnt o work with the mindfulness support of sound to bring our attention back to the present. Then we work towards noticing our distraction, learning self acceptance and understanding our undercurrent and observer.
