Mindfulness assists in remaining calmer and more pain controlled, despite the challenges of everyday life, and there is scientific evidence that the brain changes with on-going practice of mindfulness.
This practice can change the intensity of pain suffering, both emotional and physical, in a very positive way. Life skills are also enhanced in this course. The MBCPM™ group will meet once a week for 2 hours and 45 minutes (including break times) for a total of 12 weeks. Sessions will include guidance through meditation techniques as well as discussions about mindfulness practices and life skills.
No prior experience with mindfulness or meditation is necessary. Participants will be encouraged to practice guided meditation at home and read sections of the course book between classes.
Do I need to know anything about mindfulness or meditation to take your courses?
No, Intro to Mindfulness, Individual Training and our MBSR program are ideal places to start, but all our programs are suitable for people with no experience in meditation or mindfulness. MBCT is designed specifically for individuals recovering from recurrent clinical anxiety or depression.
