6-Week Mindfulness and Meditation Course

Mindfulness and meditation course

Imagine you have the tools to deal with emotions, challenges and decisions with a real sense of inner strength and calm. You learn to choose more effective ways of behaviour which lead to the meaningful happy life you wish to live. On this Mindfulness and Meditation Course, we get together for an hour and a half over 6 weeks to teach you such skills.

You will learn to manage your stress and other challenging thoughts and emotions more effectively. You will discover new shifts in attitude to life itself. This Mindfulness and Meditation Course allows you the time to learn in a supportive, connected group environment.

A Group 6-Week Course costs £150 payable on booking (via internet banking)

I run these Mindfulness & Meditation Courses from home in Petersfield or at The NutriVital Centre, Dragon Street, Petersfield.

I offer a choice of either an Evening or Morning Course as follows –

Plus:

Thursday mornings: 7 September – 12 October

Taster Session: I sometimes run these for groups to introduce you to mindfulness. It’s not necessary to have attended one in order to book onto a 6-Week Course. A Taster lets you try before you commit. It also gives you some basic skills until you are ready for a course.

Alternatively you may wish to work one-to-one with me. This lets you choose which days and times suit you for a more personalised course. You can start with a stand-alone Taster Session.

Place of Serenity | Course handbooks & CDsYou will need to be committed to this Course. This means putting into practice the tips, techniques and meditations that we cover over the weeks. There will always be challenges happening in life (divorce, moving house, illness, bereavement) and these can be beautifully dealt with using a mindful approach and meditation. It can be an emotional experience and if you would prefer private one-to-one sessions I offer these from my home in Petersfield. We can work on specific areas you wish to address.

Whatever your circumstances, you are welcome to contact Yvette here to discuss whether this course would suit you.

Mindfulness Courses

I really enjoyed the course … what I found helpful was having that time set aside each week to practice and also in such warm surroundings with a like-minded group … Thank you very much for a great experience.
