So what’s this course about?
Based on the classic Mindfulness based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum, this Mindfulness course is a highly participatory, practical, skills-based course that teaches you how to find more flexible and attuned responses to stressful situations.
Set over 6 weeks, you will systematically develop and deepen the skill of being present to the interplay between your internal and external experience such as thoughts, feelings and sensations, thereby harnessing your mind’s ability to shift perspective and respond more skilfully to stressors.
Mindfulness means paying attention, in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally. ~Jon Kabat-Zinn

I absolutely loved doing the course and feel that it has really fed me on many levels. I did find the homework hard to complete at the time but that’s ok. I realise that you have to find your own way through. Just a big thank you, Veronika. ~ Andrew, Teacher, UK
I had expected this to feel like a chore as I have always found it difficult to be ‘still’ but to my surprise this wasn’t the case at all! With your guidance and support I discovered that I was able to make some big real-life changes. Thank you so much! ~ Caroline, Business Professional, UK
