with Leanda Carroll MSc. MBI
Practicing mindfulness helps us to develop inner resources such as clarity and stability. It can ‘wake us up’ to aspects of our everyday experience which we miss when we are constantly lost in our thoughts.
Leanda Carroll MSc. MBI has created this course to take you through the process of discovering mindfulness and all of its benefits.
Studies from the University of Wisconsin show that mindfulness practices lead to an increased activation in areas of the brain responsible for positive emotions and lowered states of anxiety.
Allows you to slow down and create space between receiving information, processing, and reacting – giving you the ability to check-in with your best self in real-time before responding.
Scientific studies show that mindfulness prevents depression and also positively affects the brain patterns underlying day to day stress, irritability and anxiety.
The course is divided into two levels across eight sessions.
Session 1 : Automatic pilot
Session 2 : Living in our heads
Session 3 : Gathering the scattered mind
Session 4 : Recognising aversion
Session 5 : Letting be
Session 6 : Thoughts are not facts
Session 7 : How can I best take care of me
Session 8 : Acceptance and change
