This 8 week course is especially designed for anyone who is living with pain, physical illness or stress that is impacting on their health. The Breathworks approach teaches gentle mindfulness skills to help improve quality of life and health even in the most difficult of circumstances.
The course will be led by Tara and will run over 8 Tuesday mornings from 9.30 - 12.00 at Y Ganolfan, Fford Dewi Sant Nefyn. This is a modern and comfortable community centre in Nefyn with ample parking on Fford Dewi Sant or in the car park behind where there is space for 11 cars. It has full disabled access. We will be in the big hall which you can enter directly from the car park.
Week one and week 8 of the course (27th September and 15th November) will start a little earlier at 9.15am in order to have time for introductions and also final reflections at the end.
There will be a free taster and orientation session on Tuesday 13th September 9.30 - 12.00 when you can come and find out more about the course and talk to Tara.
There is also the option of a follow up morning after the course on Tuesday 22nd November 9.30 - 12.00 also at Y Ganolfan Nefyn. . This is an opportunity to have a morning of guided practices in an atmosphere of silence, followed by a discussion.
The course costs £150 or £110 concessionary rate. There are also a number of further concessions available if you are unable to afford these rates so do contact Tara to discuss your situation with her. It is understood that living with long term health problems often goes hand in hand with a reduced income and so we do our best to make this course available to as many people as possible.
The cost includes the 8 evening sessions, the follow up session, teacher support in between sessions if needed, recordings of guided meditation practices and a course book - 'Mindfulness for Health' by Vidyamala Burch and Danny Penman. Recordings are provided by MP3 downloads ( CDs are £5 extra).
Copies of the book will be available at the free taster session. It is recommended to read the first 4 chapters before starting the course.
You can read the first chapter of the book for free on the Breathworks website
