(8-Week Mindfulness for Health & Happiness Course)

"I would recommend this course because it makes you think about your own reactions to the life’s problems, particularly putting minor things into perspective.

I was aware that I was finding life stressful and sometimes concerned about the effect on me. I had hoped, having recently retired, that this situation would have improved. It has made me less critical of myself and more accepting of times when things are not going well. I now try to focus on being kinder to myself and be more aware of the good things and people around me.

The sessions themselves were relaxing and empowering. I was largely able to forget about the outside world.

The atmosphere within the group was right and so much of that is down to Joy, John and their canine sidekick. It was okay to say just what you felt/experienced, everyone listened, no-one sought to dominate. It was essentially collaborative, absolutely not competitive."

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.
