What is mindfulness?
“Give yourself permission to allow this moment to be exactly as it is, and allow yourself to be exactly as you are.” ― Jon Kabat-Zinn
To be mindful is to be fully aware of our experience (thoughts, emotions, body sensations and intentions), to allow what is already here to be here, without judgement and with a sense of compassion.
What is MBCT for Life?
The Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a scientifically tested approach where participants and the trainer walk together in a journey to learn and explore new ways to enhance their psychological wellbeing. This course combines mindfulness-based interventions with cognitive behavioural therapy approaches to help individuals cultivate a compassionate awareness, create a space to see things from new perspectives, and respond skilfully and creatively to life stresses and challenges.
The MBCT was initially developed to support people with depression and was found in randomized control trials to be as effective as antidepressant medication in preventing relapse. It is now developed into an 8-session programme for the general public, and has proven to help relief stress and anxiety and enhance emotional wellbeing in various contexts.
