Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Course

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.” Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Meditation has been shown to have many health benefits. It both promotes physical and mental health, helps reduce stress and can be very helpful for depression. Many studies have confirmed the health benefits of meditation. Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy has been developed with the aim of reducing relapse and recurrence for those who are vulnerable to episodes of depression.

We invite you to a ten-week course designed for people who experience recurrent depression, anxiety or stress. Recent studies have shown that Mindfulness Meditation used with elements from Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is helpful in preventing relapse into depression and reducing stress and anxiety. The course includes CDs and a workbook.

Mindfulness has been used for thousands of years for promoting a general sense of 'wellbeing'. This course is relevant for anyone and will provide tools and an approach to life that can help all of us appreciate positive experiences more. Mindfulness particularly helps reduce ‘over thinking’ which for all of us can so easily reduce our enjoyment of life.
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week course in how to use mindfulness in daily life. It has also been scientifically shown to reduce stress and anxiety. Many people have also reported finding mindfulness very helpful in both their personal relationships and work roles. MBSR was originally designed to help people manage the stress of chronic pain and extreme health conditions but has also been scientifically shown to reduce stress in healthy people too. It is used widely around the world now for the general public and in workplace settings. In controlled trials it has also been shown to reduce anxiety. In fact, one study has shown MBSR can reduce anxiety by 70%.

Thursdays
An Introduction to Mindfulness MeditationAn Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

Thu 17 Apr 7.30 - 9.15pm @ The Tree of Life Centre Every Thu till 08 May 2014

Mindfulness has been used for thousands of years to promote wellbeing. It is widely recognised as being a powerful tool that can help anyone enhance their appreciation of life, manage stress, and even improve performance in activities and tasks.
Mindfulness is now recommended by doctors and is also used in schools, business, and even sport.
This course will consist of 4 sessions and will be a basic introduction to mindfulness meditation. In order to really learn to establish and maintain the practice of mindfulness in daily life, a longer course would probably be necessary.

However, for people unable to do one of those longer courses, or for anyone interested in simply getting a ‘taste’ of what mindfulness is, this course will introduce the same mindfulness practices taught on longer courses and also provide guidance on how to bring mindfulness into everyday life.

Cost - £65 (£50 concession). Includes a guided meditation CD. Advanced booking required - call Nick on 07948795645 or or contact me via the contacts page on my website www.mindfulnessforwellbeing.co.uk.
Nick has taught more that 50 mindfulness courses. He has an MA in Teaching Mindfulness-based Courses and is an Associate Teacher at Bangor Unversity’s Centre For Mindfulness Research and Practice.

Sat 19 April
Tantra workshop Tantra workshop "LIVING AS LOVE"

Sat 19 Apr Arrive 2pm (-6.30pm) @ Unity Studio £32 til 12th Apr, thn £42

Living as Love is a moment by moment choice, whether it's love through passion, sexuality, compassion, or sacred-perspective. How can we chose the path of love instead of settling for something less, so that we may live our passion and be fulfilled each day?

Love is an action, a force which can open us with strength or subtlety; ripping through our body as Kundalini life-force, uniting us breathless and ecstatic with a lover, or flooding us with empathy and tenderness, insight and peace. Using Tantric practices we will invite love as passion, life-force, compassion and interconnection within us in a real and dynamic way.

Included in the day:

Kundalini rising - energise your body
Gender-healing ritual
Caressing meditation


Benefits of the day:

Feel powerfully awake, and "turned-on" to life
Increase empathy and love for both the masculine and feminine (and men and women)
feel more erotic, heal stuck patterns in body and mind


Some exercises and meditations are done by yourself, some in connection with another, some in the group context. You may like to like to invite a special friend or partner with you as the day will encourage a deepening of the relationship. If you come by yourself you will find a supportive and friendly group in which to practice.

Testimonial from past participant of this day:


“Julia holds the group securely but with a light touch. I always feel opened up by any involvement with tantra. For me it is the path to exploring and understanding the nature of desire and a healthy safe environment to set it free”. Russell Goodbourn, Horsham.

Booking prior to this event is essential, your payment reserves your place. Early bird discount up to 12th April £32. After this date £42.
