Mindfulness Training Course

Jan 2018, Salthill, Galway


“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally.” Jon Kabat-Zinn

Description

Benefits of mindfulness are now recognised the world over. In particular for improving mental health, wellbeing and even physical health. Feel improved life attitude and outlook, more mental and emotional space to deal with busy life. Reduction in anxiety, depression, sleep difficulties and digestive issues. Mindfulness is for everyone from all walks of life, young or old.

For this training, we include a compassion or kindness based model of bringing attention to the present moment.
