Event description

Description

While short bursts of pressure can help us to rise to meet a challenge, a long term stress can have a major impact on our physical and mental health. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) aims to address prolonged periods of stress, which can lead to poor mental and physical health, and improve general well-being.

Stress manifests with symptoms including anger, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, breathlessness and chest pains, and it’s something that needs to be addressed.
After bereavement and divorce, work is the third biggest cause of stress. As well as impacting on people’s health and wellbeing, it can also damage social lives and relationships.

MBSR incorporates techniques such as meditation, gentle yoga and mind-body exercises to help people learn how to cope with stress. It gives people greater clarity on what is happening in their lives. People have reported feeling more engaged in their work, more energized, less anxious, as well as sleep better and have fewer physical symptoms of stress, after attending an MBSR course. MBSR has been developed and studied since the 1970s for its impact on mental health. It has been shown to reduce anxiety levels by 58% and stress by 40%.

The MBSR program includes an orientation session, 8 weekly sessions 2h/2h30 minutes long, and an all day retreat.

Orientation session: Tuesday 24th September from 9.30 to 10.30 a.m.

Weekly sessions:
From 9.30 to 11.30a.m./12 p.m.
on Tuesdays: 1, 8, 15, 29 October; 5, 12, 19, 26 November 2019

All Day Retreat: Sunday 17th November, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
