Mindfulness Course

September 1 @ 10:30 - October 20 @ 12:00

Mindfulness is a very simple form of meditation. It teaches people how to be present at the moment and break away from negative thought patterns that exacerbate stress, anxiety and depression. Giving people the tools to replace negative thought patterns with positive.

A typical meditation consists of focusing your full attention on your breath as it flows in and out of your body. Focusing on each breath in this way allows you to observe your thoughts as they arise in your mind and, little by little, to let go of struggling with them.

Mindfulness is about observation without criticism; being compassionate with yourself. Over time, mindfulness brings about long-term changes in mood and levels of happiness and wellbeing. Scientific studies have shown that mindfulness not only prevents depression but that it also positively affects the brain patterns underlying day-to-day anxiety, stress, depression and irritability so that when they arise, they dissolve away again more easily.

​Helping to manage the stresses of everyday life and more specifically anxiety, depression, addictive or obsessive behaviours, chronic illness and pain.

Open to Islington residents only
