Prudent Mindfulness Programme Orientation
Thank you for your interest in taking part in the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Wellbeing Course
You, along with the other staff members, may be attending this course because there have been times when you have felt stressed, anxious, exhausted, low, or overwhelmed. Or maybe you have a sense that life is somehow passing you by in an endless round of busyness, commitments, and deadlines. Perhaps you are looking for ways to slow down a bit, take care of yourself, or appreciate the simple things in life. Or maybe you just want to learn a little more about mindfulness and meditation to benefit yourself and to support those you care about or work with. Whatever your reason for joining, this mindfulness course is an opportunity to nurture your wellbeing and find greater peace and happiness within the hustle and bustle of your daily life.
The foundation of this course is Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and the Mindfulness for Life Programme which grew from the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn at the UMass Memorial Health Center for Mindfulness in America. The MBCT programme was designed and developed to help people who suffered repeated bouts of depression to overcome their illness.
