“Mindfulness is… a turning towards life …to live life as if each moment is important ,
as if each moment counted and could be worked with, even if it is a moment of pain, sadness, despair or fear.”
We are so lucky here at Heart Centre, to be able to offer you the Mindfulness Based Living Course presented by the wonderful Christine Dewar. This course will be delivered on Thursday evenings and runs for a total of 12 weeks.
This new course has emerged from the first MSc Programme in Mindfulness and Compassion taught collaboratively between Aberdeen University’s Faculty of Education and Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre in the Scottish Borders. . Participants in the programme can therefore be assured that their facilitators are fully immersed in their own regular meditation practice, are fully supported and supervised and meet the current UK Guidelines for Mindfulness teachers.
The aims of the MBLC is to help individuals develop an in-depth personal experience of mindfulness and develop a sustained personal practice with a view to applying this in everyday life. The benefits of applying the practice have been widely researched and include the following:
· improved communication and problem solving
· increased concentration and focus
· balance and resilience both at home and at work
· enhanced clarity and creative thinking
· promotion of physical and mental well-being
· reduced stress, anxiety and depression
· relief from the suffering of pain
· increased working memory, improved planning, organization and cognition
