Mindfulness Resilience Course
Participants on the Mindfulness Resilience Course stated:
"Mindfulness allows me to notice when I am stressed, procrastinating, or ruminating on negative memories. Noticing these things has been the first step in moving forward for me, whether that be shifting my focus elsewhere, or pausing to take stock of the situation. This course helped me realise my thoughts are not facts, and how I react to something is more important than the thing itself. The weekly structure allows for practice and progress, development that would be more difficult as independent learning or a one-off session."

"I began the mindfulness course to try to understand what was going on in my mind a bit more. It was really transformative for me to find a few steps of distance between my mind having thoughts, and me as an entity. After finishing the course, I have noticed how useful it is to be able to wake up from autopilot, particularly in stressful situations. By dropping into my body, or by remembering that my thoughts and feelings are not always the truth of a situation, mindfulness really helps me day to day."
