'Being Ok'

A 6-week course exploring the benefits of a mindful approach to life

Whoever you are, wherever you live, whatever you do, the modern world doesn't make things easy. There's always more to do, never enough time and an increasing demand for results. And yet, all too often, this pressure just seems to leave us dissatisfied, struggling and stressed. It's at this point that many people turn to the world of mindfulness and the very many benefits for mind and body that regular practice can offer.

This introductory course in mindfulness invites you to consider the question, 'what does it take to be ok?' and gives you the chance to explore mindfulness in a relaxed and informal way. It consists of 6 group sessions over consecutive weeks.

Each session considers a different aspect of mindfulness, delving into the attitudes and principles that embody a more present way of viewing and being in the world, using discussion, reflection, stories, poems and meditative practices, helping us to live more mindfully.
