MBSR (Mindfulness BasedStress Reduction) in Lancaster for 2018

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course incorporates techniques such as meditation, gentle yoga and mind-body exercises. The aim is to give people greater clarity on what is happening in their lives, which in turn opens up new possibilities for exploring life’s challenges in new and more skillful ways. People have reported feeling more engaged in their work, more energised, less anxious, as well as sleeping better and having fewer physical symptoms of stress, after engaging in a course which employs the elements of MBSR.

“Really well delivered and planned. The group came together well – it felt like a safe space.”

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Participant, Autumn 2017

“I have discovered ways to pause when needed and to take small ‘time outs’ especially in stressful situations – to almost readjust and obtain a greater perspective. I’ve come to accept that things don’t need to be done perfectly and to be more accepting of some situations and people.”

“As I write this (review of the course) I can honestly say that I feel confident, calm, happy, motivated and rather liberated. If this is as a result of me doing the course, then I thank you!”
