Mindfulness for Stress Reduction: 8 Week Course for Rome expats0 Replies
Mindfulness is a life skill which has thirty years of research behind it demonstrating the effects of the practice. Mindfulness practitioners have lower levels of physiological stress, a more flexible and optimistic outlook on life, greater self-compassion and self-awareness, a reduction in the intensity of negative emotions, an improved ability to concentrate, and a higher tolerance for the risk associated with stepping outside one’s comfort zone. Practiced consistently, in other words, mindfulness cultivates well-being and resilience.This course is based on the curriculum and ethos of the eight-week standard programmes in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat Zinn, and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) developed by Mark Williams et al.
