What is Mindfulness?

Is there an activity in your life that you love and find absorbing? 

Do you ever notice moments of contentment and wellbeing?

 

These experiences give us an idea of the 'flavour' of mindfulness; the capacity to be calm, open and aware in the present moment. Mindfulness is non-judgemental and always curious about experience, fostering a life lived consciously.

At Love Mindfulness we offer a range of courses, classes and workshops

Secular mindfulness, stemming originally from Buddhist meditation practices, was first used by Jon Kabat-Zinn in his stress reduction clinic at Massachusetts University. It is an evidence-based technique shown to be effective in improving wellbeing and reducing stress and depression, now used in a variety of settings.

We are qualified to teach in the following areas:

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) 

The original programme developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn to help people manage the stress of chronic pain and extreme health conditions. 

 

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

This was developed from MBSR in the UK as a means of preventing relapses into depression but is now adapted for a wide range of clinical and non-clinical situations. It is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (N.I.C.E). 

Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living (MBCL)

An evidence-based 8-week course developed by Dr Eric Van Brink and Frits Koster as a continuation course for people who have completed an 8-week mindfulness course such as MBSR or MBCT.  

Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) 

We are qualified and experienced independent teachers, trained to teach courses developed for Key Stages 2-5. These present a carefully worked out, engaging programme that give children the skills and concepts to negotiate their world with greater focus and positivity. We have also developed our own course for Key Stage 1 and focused single sessions for staff, children and young people.
