About this course


A Secular Mindfulness Practice and Education Course

A simple, yet comprehensive guide to the practice, theory and application of Mindfulness.

There is no universal definition for the word Mindfulness - Due to its widespread and growing popularity it carries a very wide definition, which can be confusing to those who are new to the practice of mindfulness. Some camps of mindfulness place a lot of emphasis on the physical aspects. Others use it in conjunction with therapy, or even as an alternative to therapy and medication. Many identify the role of mindfulness as better management over thoughts and emotions that allow for more choice and ease in their lives. There is a large group of people who bring mindfulness into their work lives, particularly those working in medicine, psychology and education. 

These are all good reasons to practice and we can respect that it means different things to different people. Whatever your motivation is, trust that it is a good one.  I personally invite you to take this course; a deep dive into the practice, theory, instruction and application of Mindfulness practice.
