MINDFULNESS MEDITATION PROGRAMME

 
Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally.
— Jon Kabbat Zinn

There has been a surge of interest in this “therapy” of late. There have been numerous press articles extolling the virtues of Mindfulness. It has been perceived as a panacea to cure all of modern day ills. Wild claims have been made in this respect and many people have jumped on the band-wagon. 

This TYA® designed course examines and analyses these claims and counterclaims. 

 With the aid of powerpoint visuals, we take a look at what actually happens in the mind, and the mind/body connection when we let go, and enter a state of quiet reflective meditation. Likewise, what counter changes take place when we tense up at some perceived or imaginary danger (the psychological and physical benefits. 

We will look at various aspects of meditation from the Christian, Buddhist and Hindu traditions. All meditational practices emanate from the mystical traditions of the great religions. At the present time Mindfulness emanating from Buddhism is the most popular. 

There will be an introductory practice during the first session which we will build on week by week. 

The course will comprise of 6 sessions.
