I came to MBSR seeking a quick fix and have come away realising that mindfulness is a life journey….I now have the skills to start that journey – Annette, QLD
What happens in an MBSR course?
Throughout MBSR you will be consciously and systematically working with your own stress, pain and illness – and the challenges and demands of your everyday life.
Your teacher will create a safe and supportive environment for this work
Do you need to have experience in meditation or be good at yoga?
No, it doesn’t matter if you have never tried meditation. One of the foundations of mindfulness is having a ‘beginner’s mind’. That is, coming to each practice as if it was your first! There is some gentle mindful movement in MBSR. This includes learning to walk mindfully. Instruction is given thoughtfully and carefully to ensure everyone is safe and getting the most out of the experience.
Is there any support once I have completed an MBSR course?
The 8-week MBSR course provides the tools to begin your mindfulness journey.
However you might also like some on-going support to help you keep things going. As an MBSR ‘graduate’ you will be able to arrange private one on one meetings with a mindfulness coach who will give you encouragement, information and support about your unique mindfulness life journey.
Or, you might like to join one of our online MBSR on-going learning and support forums.
Living a mindful life, and the discoveries and awakening that come with this are further enriched by attending the regular MBSR Full Days or even doing the MBSR course again at some stage.Once you have completed an MBSR course you are welcome to register again at a special ‘Past Participant Refresher’ price.
