What happens in the Mindfulness Now Course?
- This course is structured so as to introduce mindfulness in a gentle and encouraging manner. Each class builds on learning in the previous classes.
- Roz will provide instruction and lead practice in a wide range of mindfulness techniques which will include breathing, gentle movement, meditations, visualisations and sensory awareness.
- Roz will give talks and lead discussion on the ‘mindfulness attitudes’ and participants will be able to contribute as much or as little as they are comfortable in doing. She may also read stories, poetry or extracts from books that are relevant to the teachings.
- Mindfulness Now includes some unique elements that are not found in other mindfulness programmes, in particular The Gift, which provides an opportunity in the final class to bring everything that has been learned together with other participants in an extended practice session. The final class ends with lunch and mindful eating.
- The home practice is a significant part of the course and the teacher will provide a course workbook and give instruction on the exercises and practices to be undertaken in between the weekly classes.
- There is time in every class for participants to ask questions, share their experiences and support each other.
- Graduates of the course are given access to support further practice.
