Foundation in Mindfulness

(suitable for beginners and those returning or revitalising their practise)
Your motives for seeking out mindfulness training could be many; whether to reduce stress and anxiety, increase mental resilience, or improve mood and everyday feelings of happiness + many more… mindfulness is one of the most dramatically effective ways to achieve a positive impact on your mental health and wellbeing. Foundation in Mindfulness
With Awareful, you have a well attended, flexible mindfulness course at your fingertips, with often up to half of the cost going to support mental health focsued initiatives. Last year Awareful gave 234 hours of free sessions to local charities and people that were unable to afford to attend a course/workshop. That means by taking the course, you’re not only making a positive change for yourself, you’re in part helping support others too.
Here’s to 2020 – the year of finding calmness and happiness in a year of chaos.

Course Content:

Over the course, each day there will be guided sessions of mindfulness meditation, discussion and time for question and answers. Suitable for both complete beginners and those who want to refresh their practice.

Over the 5 weeks you will get an understanding of:

  • Mindfulness – and how we can implement them in our busy lives
  • Mindfulness Meditation and why its important
  • Meditations for the 21st Century
  • Compassion, Kindness & Using Breath and Body to understand mindfulness
  • Objectlessness (learning just to be)
  • Meditation techniques for busy people
  • Visualisation Meditations

We also look at, as often as possible: Foundation in Mindfulness

  • The benefits of Mindfulness
  • Incorporating it into your day
  • Development of Self Compassion
  • Acceptance and its place in Mindfulness
  • Hints and Tips I have learnt from my own practise but also through the teachers I have learnt from

As part of the course you will be given links and scripts to continue on the practising at home as well as a group page for weekly hints tips and advice from the teacher. Foundation in Mindfulness

We will discuss the week that has gone, what meditations you have used, what worked, and what didn’t.

By the end of the course, you will have tried a wide range of meditations, to start focusing on the ones you find best works for you. Foundation in Mindfulness

You will be required to do some home practice, so come prepared : )

There is nothing more important than previous course attendees:

#Kate Dan was excellent in providing a range of tools and techniques to be fully present and was very supportive when we discussed challenges we were experiencing with the formal practice. Dan was very welcoming, happy to be approached with questions and was accepting of us in our journey to being able to capture the moment. Foundations in Meditation & Mindfulness

Dan was amazing, I couldn’t think of anyway he could support the course attenders more. Dan was happy to provide the meditation solutions on a different platform when I stated I could not access drop box. I would (and already have) recommend this course to anyone wanting to develop their learning and experience in mindfulness.

#Jenny It gave me a great insight in to meditation and mindfulness and gave me a great start to build on whilst exploring meditation

He is calm, inspiring, explains his subject well in a way that is easy to follow and encourages self practice with handy hints, tips and tasks to follow at home. He made me feel at ease, motivated and calm

#Amanda – Dan was extremely knowledgeable in the subject matter and other related matters. Dan is very personable and makes you feel you can ask any question to him or in a group without feeling embarrassed. The information was delivered by Dan in a clear and concise manner and definitely from the heart. I cannot think of any weaknesses – Dan is a great teacher!!

#Avril – Dan made it the most beautiful peaceful and with a lovely bit of humour and cannot praise Dan enough; everyone needs a Dan in their life.

It has changed my way of thinking and now enjoy meditating every day

#Cristina – For me this course was life changing.He is an amazing teacher. I had very specific questions and he was very helpful . It was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend.

#Catia – Dan is such a warm and calming human being. He made me feel at ease and very comfortable. He is a great teacher and would love to learn a lot more from him.

The course helped me extremely in my busy life. It brought back the importance that my time and presence is and how important it is to truly stop in our busy lives. I’m sleeping better and much calmer my stress and anxiety that comes with my job role has felt more manageable. Dan is amazing and will definitely continue with him.
