Mindfulness Based Living Course in Whitby & Scarborough
Mindfulness practice allows us to bring our attention more fully into the present moment. Being more mindful can help us to manage stress more effectively. It can also help us to make more positive choices in our life and work.
Most of us spend much of our time dwelling in the past or worrying about the future - by being more mindful of the present moment we can live our lives more fully and increase our happiness.
This eight week course is structured to deliver a number of simple techniques and practices for you to use in your daily life. This is a secular course that is suitable for people from any religion or for those of no religion.
