Life is stressful and tiring at times, and we can easily feel overwhelmed by negative thoughts and feelings of anxiety. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Meditation and mindfulness, which is based around the idea of ‘being in the present moment’, provides a set of simple but powerful practices that can easily be incorporated into your everyday life to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress, aid relaxation and promote happiness.
Experience the benefits of meditation and mindfulness
This course – which comprises six 90-minute sessions, all held at the beautiful, semi-rural Firs Farm in Curdridge – gives you the chance to learn deep relaxation, practice guided meditations and mindfulness exercises, and take control of your emotions. Designed for total beginners or those who need a refresher, it’s ideal for anyone who is struggling to keep up with the demands of modern life or cope with health issues – or those who simply want to experience more peace and contentment.
Unlike many courses, this class teaches a blend of theory and practice, equipping you with all the knowledge and skills you need to build these practices into your everyday life. In the first few weeks, you’ll learn about the benefits of mindfulness, what happens in the brain when we meditate, how the different nervous systems regulate our emotional and physical responses, and practice some short, simple exercises. As the weeks progress, we’ll move on to longer periods of guided meditation, which are designed to deepen your skills.
Learn meditation and mindfulness in a supportive, friendly environment
Clinical trials have shown that meditation and mindfulness has a number of benefits, including:
- Relieves anxiety and depression
- Reduces stress
- Helps relieve pain and inflammation, including back pain
- Provides coping mechanisms for chronic conditions like IBS
- Improves quality of life in a range of disorders and diseases, such as fibromyalgia, MS and cancer
Previous attendees have also reported feeling more hopeful, confident and positive after the course. For me, this class isn’t just about teaching meditation and mindfulness – it’s about helping people live a more positive, peaceful life.
Please keep in mind that this is a commitment to improving your life and wellbeing, and that it’s a six-week course, not a quick-fix, one-off session. Ideally, you need to attend all six sessions to get the full benefits.
