1. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction MBSR: Combat Negative Thoughts Through MBSR

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course has been created to give those who suffer from stress, whether constantly or occasionally, the tools to combat negative thoughts and turn the mind into a weapon of positivity that will help you to reclaim your life.

The course does this through giving you both the knowledge of how and why certain techniques work along with how to do them and incorporate them easily into your daily routine.

We all suffer from stress and anxiety at times in our lives. For some, this is a fleeting condition that comes and goes with particular life events for others it is a daily struggle whose affects can be debilitating and hard to overcome; building up until even usually insignificant things can seem impossible to get through. No matter how often you feel the affects of stress and how powerfully, stress is a state of mind, which, left unchecked, can quickly turn into a physical condition.

The course gives students an in-depth look into what Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is. This includes information on its origins and the practice of mindfulness, deep breathing, and meditation and their affects on the mind and body. Students are invited to practice mindfulness following exercises.

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course covers mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and meditation; explaining what they are, the differences between them (and how phrases like ‘mindfulness meditation’ can be confusing), and the benefits to your mind and body of practising each.

Stress and anxiety create a negative chemical change in your brain, in a similar, but opposite, way practising mediation and being mindful can also create a positive chemical change. Students will learn exactly what these changes are, and will be introduced to more techniques that will help them to cultivate the habits of meditation and mindfulness.

For chronic sufferers of stress, the reaction to negative triggers can have damaging affects on the body and mind. The MBSR Course discusses these effects and, conversely, the positive effects of a mindful practice, along with imparting practical techniques that can be employed the moment the feeling of stress comes on.

Students are provided with practical, illustrated yoga techniques that they can practice themselves and combine with mediation techniques, to more affectively de-stress both the mind and the body. Stress can easily manifest itself as a result of miscommunication with the people in your life or because an individual finds it difficult to communication certain things.You will learn how to become a better at communicating so that conflicts can be rectified before they can become lasting problems.

As mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is at the core of this course, students will be guided through the structure of an 8-week programme in MBCT. This imparts not only a theoretical knowledge but a practical one also.

Knowing that there are so many people who have been where you’ve been and want to be, where you are now can inspire you to want to help others. With this in mind this course guides students through setting up their own MBSR practice, should they wish to impart their newly-found knowledge and make it an even bigger part of their lives.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course is something that can benefit everyone, though the focus is on those who suffer from stress, anxiety and/or depression, and want to be able to help themselves in a way that is lasting, sustainable, and holistic/medicine-free.

The course will also be beneficial to those who know someone who is going through the aforementioned conditions and may wish to study with them, as a support to them. Likewise, the course proves as an excellent study source for those in caring professions and those who wish to use what they have learned to help in their careers.

2. Mindful Mental Health: Practice The State Of Mindfulness

The Mindful Mental Health Course takes a specific look at how the practice of mindfulness can be used alongside other medical treatments and lifestyle changes to help sufferers of various mental health disorders.

The course starts by explaining the physiology of the mind and the definition of mental health and well-being, how and why issues arise, and how they are currently treated. The practice of mindfulness is then introduced; giving the history and theory behind the practical aspects of this type of self-help process, as well as why it is important to treat mental health problems in a holistic way, along with discussing how physical health and mental well-being are linked.

From this solid base, the course moves into teaching the basic first steps to mindfulness for mental health and progresses onwards, to talk about various mental health problems and how mindfulness can be used in each step of treatment: coping, recovery and long term management.

3. Mindfulness Based CBT: Learn How Mindfulness Based CBT Can Improve Your Life

MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight week program, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Research shows that MBSR is enormously empowering for patients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as for psychological problems such as anxiety and panic.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy grew from this work. The MBSR program has been adapted so it can be used especially with people who have suffered repeated bouts of depression in their lives.

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self management of anxiety and stress. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the work place and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach in life.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment, while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses.

Who would benefit from this course?

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed MBCT as an effective treatment for prevention of relapse. This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed 3 or more times (sometimes for twenty years or more) find that taking the program and learning these skills helps to reduce considerably their chances that depression will return.

4. Mindfulness for Children: Equip Your Child With The Tools And Benefits Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is often thought of as something that is used only by adults; in particular, to help with stress, anxiety, and depression. This course aims to help children to benefit from practising mindfulness and arm them with techniques that will help them to handle negative emotions better, and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives.

The Mindfulness for Children Course discusses stress. This includes: the symptoms of stress, the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed, why stress exists, and the effects on the brain. We then explain how mindfulness can help counteract these effects and simple ways that it can be brought into the daily routine of a child as easily it can be in an adult’s life, with similar positive effects.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you techniques to help you and your child do this and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with 2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.

5. Mindful Nutrition: Learn About Healthy, Clean And Mindful Eating

In the Western world we have lost control. We generally grow up richer, with more possessions than the human race has ever seen, we don’t usually go hungry and we have developed a culture of instant gratification.

No longer do we eat in response to just our real hunger – our emotions, habits and behaviours and the addictive properties that are now added to everyday foods play a huge part in our mindless eating.

Whether you have been yo-yo dieting for most of your life, are interested in learning about clean eating or want to help others to get off the dieting bandwagon, Mindful Nutrition is the course for you!

There is an overwhelming link between our minds, our bodies and the food in which we eat. Yet without education and stillness of thought we barely recognise the connection.

We rush into each day, eat over processed foods and worry about our weight and body image. Every town is filled with fatty foods, temptation and every supermarket aisle filled with foods that are harming our body, mood and mental health.

There are a number of exercises within the course that are entirely personal to you. They are designed to reform your thinking patterns, on a subconscious basis, as we work through the course. This learning style will ensure that you get the very best from the course and the contents within it.

Who would benefit from the course?

This Mindful Nutrition course would benefit us all and addresses all of the habits that we are raised to embrace, it addresses how you can quieten your own mind and fuel your body properly. We talk of mindfulness, nutrition and how the two are linked. The contents of the course will change your view of food forever, along will preparing you to show others the way back to eating with awareness.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you techniques to help you and your child do this and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with 2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.

5. Mindful Nutrition: Learn About Healthy, Clean And Mindful Eating

In the Western world we have lost control. We generally grow up richer, with more possessions than the human race has ever seen, we don’t usually go hungry and we have developed a culture of instant gratification.

No longer do we eat in response to just our real hunger – our emotions, habits and behaviours and the addictive properties that are now added to everyday foods play a huge part in our mindless eating.

Whether you have been yo-yo dieting for most of your life, are interested in learning about clean eating or want to help others to get off the dieting bandwagon, Mindful Nutrition is the course for you!

There is an overwhelming link between our minds, our bodies and the food in which we eat. Yet without education and stillness of thought we barely recognise the connection.

We rush into each day, eat over processed foods and worry about our weight and body image. Every town is filled with fatty foods, temptation and every supermarket aisle filled with foods that are harming our body, mood and mental health.

There are a number of exercises within the course that are entirely personal to you. They are designed to reform your thinking patterns, on a subconscious basis, as we work through the course. This learning style will ensure that you get the very best from the course and the contents within it.

Who would benefit from the course?

This Mindful Nutrition course would benefit us all and addresses all of the habits that we are raised to embrace, it addresses how you can quieten your own mind and fuel your body properly. We talk of mindfulness, nutrition and how the two are linked. The contents of the course will change your view of food forever, along will preparing you to show others the way back to eating with awareness.
