Mindfulness Course

Monday 9.30 – 11.30 am, at Seaburn Lodge, Monkwearmouth Hospital (8 week course)

Tuesday 5.40 – 7.40 pm, at Seaburn Lodge, Monkwearmouth Hospital (8 week course)

Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them-without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.  By paying deliberate attention to our thoughts, emotions and body sensations we can gradually slow down the constant chatter in our minds.  Mindfulness is proven to help with stress, pain, the challenges of everyday life and to deal with disturbing events in a calmer more reflective way.  The mindfulness course runs for 8 consecutive weeks and participants are expected to attend all 8 sessions, each session lasts around 2 hours.
