Once the 8 week course is over, it may feel a bit lonely not to have the weekly group support and difficult to keep up with our practice. These monthly sessions offer an opportunity to re-connect with graduates, to deepen our understanding and practice of mindfulness. Participants receive encouragement and support from practicing with a warm, safe and friendly group.
The sessions are like a mini retreat. We practice the various mindfulness practices taught in the MBSR course, with an inspirational reading, a homemade herb tea or infused water. Participants can also ask questions about their daily practice if they wish.
These sessions are for participants who have completed the 8 week MBSR/MBCT course.
