This programme was created so that anyone, anywhere, can easily and effectively learn to practise mindfulness in daily life and enjoy the benefits. We have been offering mindfulness courses for many years now and one of the main problems we have experienced is that many participants give up just at the point before the benefits begin to appear.
No matter where you are, or whatever your lifestyle – you have access to one of the best online mindfulness training platforms available anywhere. The challenge was compiled by Mindfulness experts with decades of experience in imparting the teachings of Mindfulness.
With a structure that’s easy to follow and at a pace that suits you, the course will guide you through some of the elements of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) coupled with some interesting elements of Positive Psychology to help you during those more challenging moments.
This fully online programme is structured over 4 weeks and guides you through each step in helping you to take charge of your emotional healing. You will gain a full understanding and appreciation of how thoughts and emotions interact; how to become fully ‘present’ in your life; how to change your mindset to notice the good in your life, and how to ‘accept’ and breathe through your difficulties.
The programme is delivered over a 4 week period beginning on the commencement date of the challenge. The information is accessible in your own time and there is no requirement to be online at any particular time. Information, videos, audio and meditations are available to you throughout the programme so that you can continue your Mindfulness practice once the programme is completed. Content can be accessed on your pc, laptop, iphone or as an app on your android phone.
This online programme uses techniques to keep you engaged and motivated so that you can experience the benefits of your Mindfulness practice as soon as possible. We know from experience that mindfulness is not easy. It requires regular practice.
An extensive body of academic research supports the benefits of mindfulness practice for mental performance, emotional wellbeing, physical health and more. Recent developments from the field of neuroscience show that mindfulness practice produces positive changes in the structure and functioning of the brain.
