Over two weekends at the centre, we’ll be exploring how to approach our experience in a way that helps us to live fuller, more engaged lives when living with persistent pain or illness. We naturally don't want to be present with unpleasant and unwelcome experience, but it is possible to gently integrate this into our lives, bringing about a greater sense of wholeness and well being.
These weekends are open to anyone – from newcomers to experienced meditation practitioners who are struggling to practice well with physical difficulty or pain. You need to commit to both weekends.
We will cover the whole Breathworks Mindfulness for Health course over these two immersive, experiential weekends. Breathworks is a secular organisation with roots in Buddhist practice that helps people living with ongoing pain, illness and stress to improve their quality of life.
