MINDFULNESS FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT
This 8-week Mindfulness for Health Course provides you with a wide range of mindfulness skills to ease the suffering associated with persistent pain, fatigue and ill health – whatever the cause.
Starts Monday, 8 May 7.00 – 9.30 pm – ends Monday, 3 July
There are two key principles which underlie all aspects of mindfulness and run through the Mindfulness for Health courses:
- You will learn to live in the present moment and breathe into your experience, rather than tensing against it.
- You will learn to respond rather than react to life’s circumstances.
The course is based on the book Mindfulness for Health, by Vidyamala Burch and Danny Penman.
Please either buy a copy or contact me and ask to borrow one before the course starts. Please read Chapter 4 before starting the course. If possible, please read Chapters 1 – 3 as well, although this is optional.
