The Mindfulness Now training programme offers an up to date fusion of the evidence based mindfulness programmes; Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). The former, developed by Dr Jon Kabat Zin for his Stress Reduction Clinic at Massachusetts University, provides an integration of mindfulness meditation with proven psychotherapeutic approaches. The latter, developed by Dr Mark Williams for Oxford University’s Mindfulness Centre offers a breakthrough in the treatment of clinical depression, anxiety and emotional trauma.
Mindfulness Now training programme is a unique mind/body programme incorporating key elements from MBSR and MBCT. It can be taught in either group sessions or on an individual one to one basis. The training includes a series of daily meditation practices that encourage us to break some of the unconscious habits of thinking and behaving that stop us from living life to the full.
