Mindfulness: Cultivating Resilience
This course create a space and support participants in learning, practicing and strengthening mindfulness skills that will enable you to deal more skillfully with the stresses and difficulties faced in your busy life, enhancing your resilience and well-being. In this course, you will practice becoming more familiar with the workings of your own mind, its patterns and habits. The awareness allows you to better make plans for how best to respond, rather than react in your old familiar, often unhelpful ways.
The systematic teaching in this four-weekly sessions is designed to be supportive for individuals to develop the capacity to apply mindfulness skills in times of difficulty, and to stay centered in the midst of uncertainties and challenges. This course is adapted from Prof Mark Williams and Danny Penman’s program and book - ' Finding peace in a frantic world'. It includes elements of resilience and mindful self-compassion. The topics covered in this course are as follows:
Session 1: Finding Stability in Uncertain Times
Session 2: Working with Difficulties
Session 3: Cultivating Self Compassion
Session 4: Finding Re-balance in Daily Life
Note: The course is not being offered as a treatment for any specific physical or psychological conditions and is not suitable for people who are currently experiencing severe problems in these areas.
Available for corporate/workplace
The course takes the form of 4-weekly sessions. The sessions will cover a combination of guided mindfulness practices (including somatic practices) and cognitive exercises. In each session, there will be time for inquiry after each practice to support participants, in gaining more insight or understanding of their experience. In addition to attending sessions regularly, participants are encouraged to engage in regular formal and informal home practices of about 15-30 minutes daily.
