8 week Stress Reduction Course (based on mindfulness meditation)

With experienced Meditation facilitator and Holistic Therapist - Jacqui Bastock

Most of us live in a world full of things that just have to be done. Our busy mind continually pulls us from 'pillar to post' from what happened yesterday or an hour ago, to our worries about what might or might not happen tomorrow. Even at night it can be difficult to stop the chatter and move into relaxed and restful sleep.

Developing a regular Meditation practice can significantly reduce tension and stress levels, lower high blood pressure, reduce pain and aid the healing process. In addition, it can increase our ability to focus our attention. Through Meditation practice we begin to develop a level of inner quiet, creating a 'quiet space' that gives us the opportunity to choose, whether we 'act or react' in stressful situations.
