Derry Mindfulness Programme (Part 2) - Register here



This course is ‘part two’ of the Mindfulness Programme, which includes training in skills such as radical acceptance and 'the art of falling awake' . Much of the time, we can live our lives on autopilot, everyday pressures can cause unconscious emotional and physiological reactions. We therefore need continual practice to actively cultivate this skill of awareness so that we can experience the benefits of a more mindful way of living. Furthermore, Part 2 helps to embed that mindfulness practice can help build and strengthen our relationships, through helping us to understand and sense the interconnectedness of all beings. This course has also proved to be effective in deepening practice for those who have completed the full AWARE Mindfulness Programme.

Mindfulness Self Compassion - Register here

We can generate more compassion when we learn how to develop a greater sense of contentment and appreciation of ourselves and our life.  The three main components of self-compassion are self-kindness, common humanity, and Mindfulness. This day long course will teach the Loving Kindness meditation practice in a safe nurturing environment.  This practice develops the ability to connect to our heart, by bringing a gentle, kindly awareness to our emotional responses and those of others through mindfulness practice. We will also explore other ways of bringing loving kindness into our everyday life, by simple practices that develop positive emotions such as gratitude, generosity and compassion.  Finding opportunities to bring compassion into our work interactions will also be explored. Evidence of course hours will be provided for CPD or PDP purposes.
