Course aim:
With its roots in Mindfulness practice and through a spirit of shared experience and support this course encourages the importance of self-care and explores a range of holistic tools and techniques for personal growth and wellbeing.
Course description:
Suitable for beginners or improvers this course has its roots in Mindfulness practice. Connecting with others through shared experience and support, it will give you the opportunity to STOP and breathe, once a week - to gather your thoughts and reflect on where you are in life. Holistic tools have had such a positive effect on Jude’s mental health and wellbeing over the years and she is passionate about sharing these (so often very simple) techniques with others. As well as developing a regular mindfulness practice, we will touch on meditation and relaxation and a range of energy techniques aimed at bringing greater balance and flow into our lives. We will explore and discuss the teachings of holistic teachers and you will be encouraged to capture your progress through journaling (if journaling is your thing – nothing is compulsory).
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Describe the basics of mindfulness practice.
2. Experience how mindfulness practice can impact my life.
3. Experience how at least 3 holistic tools and techniques might have a positive effect on wellbeing.
4. Feel confident in sharing my experience and connecting with others via Zoom
5. Understand the concept of a MInd, Body and Spirit approach to life.

Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.
