Mindfulness is to be aware of what is happening in the present moment with openness to our experience. The cultivation of mindfulness with regular practice allows one to gain greater freedom to respond intentionally to life rather than reacting automatically. Cultivating mindfulness over time has been associated with improvements in physical and mental well-being and quality of life.
About Mindfulness for Life (MBCT-L)
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an 8-week evidence-based programme, originally developed for helping people with repeated episodes of depression to stay well and reduce risks of relapse. MBCT has been shown to be effective in numerous randomised controlled trials, and is recommended as a treatment for recurrent depression by bodies such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. Mindfulness for Life (MBCT-L) is built on the original framework of MBCT and adapted to be relevant for the general population. It similarly aims at exploring patterns of mind that can lead to suffering and learning mindfulness skills to side-track that, whilst together directing mindfulness towards cultivating qualities that support human flourishing such as equanimity, gratitude, and compassion.
Who it is for?
Those who would like to cultivate a regular mindfulness practice and have a deeper experience of mind and body.
