Mindfulness is a life skill, which can deepen our sense of well-being and fulfillment. It involves paying attention to what is occurring in our present moment experience, with an attitude of openness and non-judgmental acceptance. It engages all of our senses as we open up to our entire experience, becoming aware of our body, emotions, thoughts and the external environment.
The program consists of 8 weeks of direct instruction with weekly meetings of 2,5 hours. Highly participatory, supportive, and structured, this program will provide you with:
- Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices;
- Gentle stretching and mindful yoga;
- Group dialogue and mindful communication exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life
- Individually tailored instruction.
The program is challenging and life-affirming. It is about “coming back to our senses”, being in touch with ourselves, with others, and with our surroundings in the present moment. It is a natural and intuitive state of presence in which we can feel more connected, real and alive.
In the weekly exercises we focus our attention on breathing, do physical exercises that focus on the awareness of bodily sensation,; and practice being fully aware during everyday activities by using breathing as an anchor for attention.
Essential to all parts of the programme is the development of an accepting and non-reactive attitude to what one experiences. Various health insurances offer reimbursements for mindfulness curses. Iquire about this yourself at your health insurance. A condition for the reimbursement is a referral from your general practitioner or company doctor. In addition, the trainer must be registered at the VMBN register – category 1 (which I meet).
