About this event

Looking for ways to support you living well and adpating to the ever-changing and vivid uncertainty of a post-covid world? Maybe you've heard about mindfulness as a way to support you through life's stresses and strains? Maybe you are recovering from a major illness or life difficulty? Perhaps you have tried some practices at home and you wish to bring mindfulness into your life in a more regular way? Well this is the course for you!

MBSR is the ‘gold standard’ programme that gives people the opportunity to develop an individual personal practice of mindfulness. First designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, this is the programme that has been most widely researched and has yielded significant health benefits for people, physically and psychologically. Learning new skills takes effort and repeated practice so this programme gives participants the space to learn the skills of mindfulness in a supportive small-group setting.

This course is practical, individualised and even fun! Mindfulness is simply being aware. And with awareness comes choice, when we can see what is happening in our lives, what supports us and what does not, we can make wise choices that help us to live more connected to what really matters to us. We can reduce our stress, increase joy and feel stronger and more resilient when life's challenges show up from time to time. You deserve to know you are enough just as you are, to feel well and strong and to experience life in full. We may not be able to control the waves, but we can learn to surf them!

As a certified mindfulness teacher and chartered clinical psychologist*, I follow best practice guidelines for teaching mindfulness and a code of professional practice to ensure that we work together safely. Before signing up for the full course, we will arrange a pre-course conversation to make sure that this is the best course for you at this time in your life.

Deposit of €100 secures a place. Full course fee is €290. This covers all 8 2.5 hour sessions, a course workbook and mp3/cds of audio recordings and a full day retreat including lunch. A snip at €12 per hour! And so worth it!

Here's what some participants from the last course offered:

"This course delivered way more than I expected. Sheena expertly and gently led us through each session creating a space of non judgment and self learning."

"This course was fantastic. Dr Sheena's guidance and way of being was so lovely and incredibly supportive, she is an excellent facilitator. This course really helped me to deepen my practice and continue on a journey of mindfulness and meditation. The group element is very powerful and the group reflections and inquiry helped me a lot in my practice too."
