(8-Week Mindfulness for Health & Happiness Course)

“I would recommend this course to learn how to be calmer and be reminded of the power of kindness to yourself as well as others.

Before, I felt constantly swayed from one thing to another with little sense of what I was doing, or noticing what I might enjoy. After the 8 weeks I knew there was a way of approaching daily life that can increase the joy of it (with practice). I need more practice to make a real difference but think I actively seek out things to look at or listen to, and attend to them more fully while they are there.

I enjoyed the ‘sanctuary’ of the classes. Thank you for running it. I am very lucky to have benefitted from this.”

Embracing Mindfulness Practice For Holistic Back Pain Relief

Chronic back pain is a huge problem in modern society that can lead to long term disability, sleep problems and depression. Our doctors and GPs are limited in how they can help. The most common solution is to try and hide the pain with various pain killers. This can work sometimes to mask the pain but it’s rarely a good, permanent solution.  

Our emotions play a significant role in how we experience chronic pain in the body. Feeling constant pain can lead to spiralling negative emotions, like helplessness, resentment, frustration, fear and anger. Mindfulness is great for helping us manage those feelings and emotions so they don’t get in the way of us living a meaningful life.

In the following article the NHS considers a study done on the effectiveness of mindfulness for dealing with low back pain.

Mindfulness may be effective for treating lower back pain

Mindfulness makes use of some yoga techniques “Meditation could ease the agony of back pain, a study suggests,” the Daily Mirror reports. A US study compared a technique called mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) with usual care and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for long-term non-specific lower back pain.
