Mindfulness and Compassion for Living Well

An 8 week course at Belfield, UCD

While many of us want to live and experience our lives in a meaningful way, we find it hard to slow down, to take the time to look below the surface busyness of our lives to find who we really are and what we really want and value. This course will introduce you to Mindfulness, a practice for managing stress, anxiety, chronic pain, and also by those simply wishing wish to live life more fully. The course will consist of exercises and discussions around being more present in daily life; an analysis of how we get stuck in reactive behaviour when we’re stressed, and ways of getting ‘unstuck’ so that we can respond more creatively and positively to stressful situations. 
You will learn meditations that develop awareness of the body, the breath and your mental and emotional states. We will also focus on ways to care for oneself, including an exercise to develop more openness to pleasurable moments throughout the day, and a meditation that develops positive emotions such as kindness and gratitude, and helps deal with more difficult emotions such as anger. 
You are asked to commit to a regular, daily practice of mindfulness for the duration of the course, so that you get the maximum benefit from the course. The emphasis throughout the course is on providing students with a supportive context in which to experience Mindfulness.

Where: Belfield, University College Dublin, Dublin 4.
When: Wednesday 5 February 2020, 7pm - 9pm, for 8 weeks
Cost: €160 
Booking: Lifelong Learning. For information on course content, contact Fidelma at 087 683 4717, or info@breathworks.ie.
