Everybody is talking about Mindfulness. More and more people are learning about the remarkable benefits of these simple techniques and practices, whilst Mindfulness-based therapies are now in widespread use in clinical and therapeutic settings.
Mindfulness practices have now been scientifically proven to reduce stress and alleviate depression, as well as being proven to enhance general health, happiness and well-being. In particular, Mindfulness is now emerging as a highly effective tool in managing, and recovering from, substance use and addictive behaviour. As well as individuals, many employers are becoming aware of the benefits of Mindfulness for employee welfare and business development.
Training in Mindfulness can support a more productive, creative, peaceful and successful work environment. It will provide attendees with an introduction and insight into Mindfulness and the simple meditation practices that underpin it. It will also give participants the opportunity to experience and try out the core practices and techniques involved in Mindfulness.
