Heart Training: A New Response to Challenge
Based on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction programme
A ‘pay what you can’ eight session course in Mindfulness
Every Monday and Thursday | 23 Nov – 17th Dec | 7-8.30pm
Breathing Space London closes this unprecedented year with Heart Training, a mindfulness and compassion course. Compassion for ourselves and others is one of the 6 ‘C’s that serve as principles in the care sector, and is at the forefront of the public health agenda. Clinical studies show that having a mindfulness and compassion practice can boost the immune system, reduce stress and even lengthen life span. Join us to learn skills for positive mental health as we head into a holiday season like no other.
As Breathing Space’s final pay-what-you-can course, it hopes to be a valuable gift for those who wish to learn tools and techniques to help manage your mental health and develop new responses to life’s challenges.
Sessions begin with a presentation on the session topic; followed by a short, guided meditation; small group discussion in breakout rooms (optional participation); a break with some gentle guided bodywork; large group question and answer with the teachers; and a deeper meditation to close. There are home practices offered after each session, guided meditations to keep, and a chance for a 1:1 wellbeing phone call with one of the Breathing Space team.
