Welcome to Mindfulness for Communities

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally, to the unfolding of experience moment by moment

Jon Kabat-Zinn, Founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness is a way of being fully present and awake appreciating every moment of life, whatever arises. Mindfulness can successfully tackle anxiety, stress, exhaustion and depression. By practicing and applying mindfulness each day, we can become more aware and accepting of our thoughts and feelings, and appreciate how we can choose to respond to them. It can help us to feel calm and provide an inner balance as we encounter each moment with awareness, contentment, enjoyment and happiness.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Life

An 8-week course based on the original Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course which has been adapted by clinical psychologists at Oxford University Mindfulness Centre for community settings where people can participate in the programme over 8 weekly sessions of 2 hours. 

Intended for anyone who wants to reduce stress and improve mental wellbeing, it is taught in a suitable and safe environment, in a group of no more than 15 people. Participants will practise mindfulness meditations as well as cognitive-behavioural approaches in ways that are accessible to all. The course offers a different way of living that supports people to work with distress and difficulties, and enhance resilience as well as realise their potential and experience gratitude.

Participants will learn:

  • to understand the workings of their mind and recognise patterns/mental habits
  • to stand back from difficult thoughts and feelings
  • begin to recognise early warning signs and take action
  • be kinder and more compassionate to yourself
