The Mindfulness Course – Nourishing the Domain of Being brings together insights from the traditions of Mindfulness and Existential Therapy. The simple practice of Mindfulness has the potential to bring about a profound change in the way we begin to experience ourselves, others and our world. When we pay intricate attention to our experience, we recognise that we have a lived experience of the arising of Existential themes.
Both the traditions of Mindfulness and Existential therapy recognise the inter-related nature of body/mind, subject/object and self/other/world. Both recognise the presence of impermanence, change, uncertainty, suffering/existential anxiety and death as givens of existence.
Mindfulness is a dedicated contemplative practice of being present to our experience in non-judgmental awareness. It is a practice of awakening the heart for our self and others. It helps psychotherapists in increasing phenomenological awareness, in clearing the space to be present for clients and in staying anchored in the midst of another person’s suffering. It facilitates compassionate listening. It also facilitates monitoring and honouring the messages from our body in the therapeutic relationship. The clinical value of Mindfulness is widely accepted, including within the NICE guidelines as promoting mental health and resilience.
This course will be highly experiential and the teaching will emerge from participants’ lived experience.
