MINDFULNESS FOR HEALTH
Techniques that Work
These techniques: a mix of mindfulness, meditation, a supportive mindful movement practice, and modern pain management strategies, were created and refined by mindfulness experts who made it their life’s mission to share them, having suffered themselves from chronic pain and health problems.
The course itself requires 20 minutes of meditation per day, in addition to a little reading every week, and a weekly or fortnightly session with your group and teacher. The sessions will consist of 20 hours of class time over the 8 weeks, including guided meditation, in-depth teaching on the practices and techniques, discussion, opportunities for questions, and help with your home practice.
