Level 1: Establishing a Mindfulness Practice

Steadying the Mind

Next course starts 12 Feb - 25 Mar 2020 (no class on 4 Mar).

This level is designed for those who are new to mindfulness, we will focus on understanding mindfulness and exploration of  different types of mindful practices/ trainings. We aim to set you up for a sustainable mindfulness training routine that will help you to achieve an inner steadiness, a place of inner calm that can eventually be accessed even when in states of high agitation. This in turn will help you to better deal with the stressful and challenging situations at work and home. It will also bring about an opening of your mind to more fully appreciate and be nourished by the many joyful experiences that often slip past unnoticed. 

By completing this course, you will begin to uncover many of the benefits that mindfulness has to offer beyond relaxation and stress management (learn more about the benefits here).

Level 2: Developing the Inner Witness

Advancing & connecting with your mind

Next course starts 15 Apr - 27 May 2020 (no class on 6 May).

This level is specifically developed for those who would like to progress after completing Level 1 or at least 6 weeks of another mindfulness training, or have already established their own regular practice (please contact us to discuss your suitability). During this level you will experience the benefits of increasing mindful resilience. You will learn how to develop increased capacity to sit with emotions and pain without being reactive. This in turn  will help you to develop the capacity to observe  your thoughts, emotions and impulses more objectively without getting so caught up in them.

 

The skills and techniques here (see details here) will enhance your emotional intelligence, empathy and your ability to make decisions, communicate and cope with a world of ambiguity and pressure. It will help you to be a better team player and a better leader if you want that.

 

If you are affected by conditions such as pain, anxiety, stress, depression or sleep disorders, Dr. Walsh can tailor the approach to help you deal with them.

Level 3. Cultivating the fruits of resilience

Achieving new heights with your mind

Next course starts 15 Jul - 26 Aug 2020 (no class on 5 Aug).

This level focuses on practical applications and creativity. You will continue to develop your capacity to hold emotions, thoughts and impulses without being reactive. With this increasing steadiness of the mind you will be able to notice more subtle sensations, emotions, thoughts and impulses.

It then becomes much easier to use mindful awareness to deliberately change habits that are on automatic pilot. As many of our habits are not optimal, this can be very helpful. It can be useful in a social interactions, in retraining physical skills and changing habits of thinking and feeling. We will be exploring this process during this level.

As the mind quietens more, it becomes possible for our deeper creativity to bubble up. A deeper wisdom can also appear in this space. This is similar to waking up in the morning with the solution to a difficult problem just appearing in your mind. We will be exploring how to deliberately encourage this process and how to distinguish this spontaneously arising wisdom from childlike fantasies and wishful thinking.
