  • Course description

    This course is aimed at those who would like to find a little more peace and a greater space for creativity in their lives, whether at work or home.

    An ever-increasing number of peer-reviewed scientific papers show that mindfulness meditation techniques, when practised regularly, enhance creativity and decision-making as well as improving physical and mental wellbeing.

    Based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, the course will teach you simple meditation techniques that will help you reduce the effects of stress, give you more clarity about how to spend your time and allow more space for the bubble of creativity to rise to the surface.

    During this course your tutor Beatrice Brooke will guide you through a series of formal and informal meditation practices, supported by discussion in class and regular home practice. Further exercises will be included to help you, e.g. habit-releasers and skillful ways of dealing with the inner critic, and time will be allowed in each class for free creative exploration.

    The course is taught over 8 successive weekly classes, with an additional whole day of practice on a Saturday*. Home practice of up to 45 minutes a day for 6 days a week will be set, which is an integral part of the course. CD’s or audio files of guided meditations will be provided for Home Practice.
