(8-Week Mindfulness for Health & Happiness Course)

"I enjoyed all aspects of the course! The interesting and thought-provoking material, having the opportunity and time to practice the exercises in a way that was stimulating and not rushed, the interesting discussions everyone had throughout the course, as well as most of the ‘home experiments’ and exercises.

I was doing a lot of everyday activities automatically and in a hurry. By the end of the course I feel a bit more able to be aware of and to focus on what I am doing and what is happening around me, I find my everyday experiences richer. I feel more present and my days are no longer flying by without me noticing.

One definite impact I have noticed in terms of health is that the mindful attitude to eating, which I have learned to adopt, has helped me to improve my diet considerably. I also feel ‘happier’ in a sense that I am calmer, kinder to myself and more appreciative and capable of noticing and enjoying simple things, as well as the people around me.

It has been a valuable opportunity to learn more about myself and to get in touch with/be more aware of what is happening within and around me. I found it very useful to think about my values and how much what I do is (or isn’t) in line with them. I have also very much liked the parts about mindful acceptance and thoughts not being facts, which is helping me cope with difficult feelings and thoughts.

I think John, Joy and Loradog made a great team! The course was extremely well organised, I was really impressed by their time keeping and the amount they were able to cover in the sessions so thoroughly. They seemed to have worked very well together, it was well balanced, entertaining as well as educational. I also really liked the positive, friendly and personal atmosphere they managed to create and maintain throughout the sessions."

Do you sometimes feel anxious in everyday situations?

Anxiety seems to be on the rise and if you’re affected by it, it’s not usually obvious what you can do about it. If you don’t know how to calm your anxious mind, you’ll probably end up designing your life around avoiding difficult situations. This can result in you living a restricted life with no peace of mind.

Today doctors are finding that anxiety is one of the most common conditions being presented at their sugeries.  Even if you don’t consider yourself to be an anxious person it’s easy to be affected by the anxiety of others around you.

Mindfulness is a great skill that can help you see anxiety inducing situations more clearly, and have more choice around how you respond. Instead of anxiety driving your life decisions, you’ll be more able to use your mindfulness skills to find a more workable way to engage with life more calmly and confidently.

Mindfulness Mavericks, John Nolan and Joy Taylor, have designed this 3-hour introductory workshop for you to experience and learn more about mindful ways of coping with anxiety and calming your mind, in a small friendly group.

On this workshop you’ll learn about:

  • Why anxiety is on the rise
  • What it is and how it affects your mind and body
  • How to let go of anxiety as it arises
  • How to avoid anxiety snowballing into something that stops you from living a full life
  • Practical tools and tips you can use to help yourself for the rest of your life
