Designed to be non-threatening, this six week course will give lots of ideas and resources for you to choose what suits you best. Learn ways of handling the problematic thoughts, feelings and actions that can bombard us when we're fearful or stressed.
'A Mindful Life - dealing with challenges' places an emphasis on mindfulness; the art of paying attention to the present moment in a focused and friendly way. Mindfulness has been shown to be highly beneficial for people experiencing emotional or physical distress.
