Have you noticed that your mindfulness practice has had a profound effect on your well-being? Yet there is a part of you that feels there is more to mindfulness than solely stress-relief? If so, join our Beyond Mindfulness course where we will explore the teachings of the Buddha where mindfulness is seen as part of a larger framework enabling us to navigate through life with a deeper sense of understanding and compassion.
Over 6 weeks we will cover the 3 core aspects of the Buddhist path; wisdom, meditation and living skilfully. The course will be a mixture of teachings and experiential practices, as we explore how we can weave the concepts of this ancient wisdom into our daily lives. And it’s easier than you think!
AFTER THIS COURSE, YOU'LL BE ABLE TO:
Practice self-compassion in daily life
Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
Transform challenging relationships, old and new
Manage caregiver fatigue
Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
This 8 week training officially qualifies as one of the pre-requisites for MSC teacher training.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Class activities include guided meditations, short group discussion, and home practice.
We'll be using the platform zoom. Laila and Lucy are both experienced online teachers and have found that this form offers a beautiful chance for people to connect deeply with the practices and group, but with all the comforts of home. Online we offer the same practices, exercises, and small group work just as you would find on our in-person courses.
As Laila is based in Texas, and Lucy in England, this course promises to have a diverse and global group - a rich part of the practice can be to understand that common humanity extends beyond seas and boundaries.
