What's on Mindfulness Stress Reduction 8-Week Course, Wessex Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction 8-Week Course With Ali Lambie Our MBSR course commences on Tuesday 18th Oct 2016. The course consists of eight weekly classes from 9.45 am to 12.00, and a ‘retreat day’ 10 am to 4 pm on a Saturday. Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life, a way of taking charge of your life, of doing something for yourself and consciously and systematically working with your own stress, pain, illness and the challenging demands of everyday life. Research has shown that people who complete the Stress Reduction Programme report: An ability to cope more effectively with short- and long-term stressful situations An increased ability to relax and feel calm Greater energy and enthusiasm for life Lasting decreases in a range of physical and psychological symptoms including stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue and menopausal symptoms Reductions in pain levels and an enhanced ability to cope with chronic pain People participate on the course for many reasons including: Stress from various causes Illnesses, including cancer Anxiety and depression Sleep disturbances or fatigue A general feeling of life being out of control or just not feeling quite right Wanting to connect with our innate inner sense of peace and calm Many do the programme because they feel the pace of their life is “out of control” or they are “just not quite feeling right”.
