MINDFULNESS COURSES & RETREATS – WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is the largest and best-known stress reduction programme in the world. It was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical department in the 70’s. It has benefitted people suffering from stress, stress-related conditions and chronic pain as well as many others whose needs were less acute but who sought a better understanding of self and an improved quality of life.
The UK`s N.I.C.E. National Institute for Clinical Excellence recommends the training as a means to significantly reduce the incidence of depressive relapse.
The core skill that you will learn is ‘mindfulness’ – a way of paying attention, on purpose and non-judgementally, to what goes on in the present moment in your body, mind, and the world around you.
