(8-Week Mindfulness for Health & Happiness Course)

"This course is great for Busy people who need to slow down! Also people who are interested in learning and developing their personal and communication skills.

Before the course I found my head was constantly spinning with the things I had to do. By the end I noticed that my mind was much calmer and I was taking things more in my stride. I would recommend this course to busy, frantic people, because it’s a great way of learning how to understand and slow down your mind.

I enjoyed the general learning, the facilitators and interacting with the other delegates. Apart from learning to slow down, another surprising benefit is that it’s improved my posture!"

Useful Books

If you would like to read more about mindfulness then here are some good books we have come across.

Full Catastrophe Living

This is the book that started the modern secular mindfulness movement. It has grown into a large book rich in material. Reading it and applying the material will certainly take your mindfulness to a much fuller level.

Arriving At Your Own Door: 108 Lessons In Mindfulness

This book is from the same author as full catastrophe living. It is one of those dip into books, lots of simple thoughts, great as a handy pocket resource.

The Miracle Of Mindfulness: The Classic Guide to Meditation by the World’s Most Revered Master (Classic Edition)

This is a short, very easy to read and quite accessible book on mindfulness. It is certainly one of my favourite reads, and I have visited it several times.
