Meditation and Mindfulness for Wellbeing
Based on centuries old teaching, this course aims to give you the tools you'll need to improve your general wellbeing, lower your stress levels and to feel more satisfied in your life - whatever it might throw at you. This course is currently running at Oxford University (and throughout the UK) in its 8 week form. Come and find out why the undergraduates and staff at Oxford rate this course so highly that the University is in the process of running clinical trials to prove its benefits in the areas of stress relief, life satisfaction and well-being.
Please note: We ask anyone who comes on this course to be in a position to able to commit to doing 30 minutes of meditation every day for 8 weeks when they get back home - after that.... Well, it'll be up to you but we have a sneaking suspicion you'll quickly see its benefits and reap the rewards for years to come.
What we'll cover:
- A look at what the scientific world has discovered about the power of meditation
- Considering mindfulness
- Discovering what stress really is and how it affects our lives
- Learning how mediation can improve our relationship with physical pain
- Emotional Stress, anxiety and depression - the evidence to suggest how meditation helps
- Finding the 'flow'
- How meditation practice can increase our all-round life performance
- Seeing how things really are
Feedback from the course:
- I thought the course was really excellent and I have carried forward the wider range of meditation options that were covered into my meditation practice at home.
- If you're looking to live a more peaceful, happy and fulfilling life then give it a go.
- The course provides great motivation to get going with meditation and personal development. It is important to dedicate time to the practice, which is more challenging in your home environment. Loved it.
- I liked the course very much, especially the meditation exercises which helped me to relax and calm down.
- Very worthwhile. Kim definitely knows what she is talking about and covers the entire course content with confidence and conviction
- The Mindfulness for Meditation course has given me a very useful set of tools to be able to go away and 'help' myself. I look forward to building mindfulness and meditation in to my life on a permanent basis - such is the power of these life changing techniques.
- I am not sure how I would word this for the website, but 2 of the best things about the course were: - Lots of references to statistics about the benefits of meditation - Information comes from lots of different sources which is nice
