THEME: This retreat in the spectacular Spanish mountains, will teach you the tools to gain more insight into yourself, and be more at ease and content through life's ups and downs. Mindfulness is about waking up to a new way of seeing things, and that’s not easy to do on your own. In this course, unlike when you study from a book or CD, you’ll be guided personally by an experienced teacher. The program is challenging and life-affirming.

MINDFULNESS: for stress, anxiety and depression. The programme we typically teach is an amalgamation of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course, developed by Segal, Williams and Teasdale. It is designed to help participants learn new ways of handling difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods. The program consists of more than 30 hours of classes during the week. Highly participatory, supportive, and structured, this program will provide you with:

  • Solterreno, a retreat centre in Spain. guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices;
  • gentle stretching and mindful yoga;
  • morning practice sessions;
  • group dialogue and mindful communication exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life;
  • individually tailored instruction;
  • a workbook with daily assignments and home practice materials.

Learning Objectives. By the end of this course, participants will have had the opportunity to learn the following:

  • Understand the difference between stressors and stress,
  • The consequences of stress, and different ways of reacting towards stressors. 
  • Learn about what mindfulness is, including the relevance of attention, intention, and attitudes of mindfulness. 
  • Experience a variety of formal and informal mindfulness practices to increase awareness and reduce and prevent stress.
