Week Six Mindful Resilience Course

Week Six – Urge Surfing

Week six includes a brief review of what has been the most helpful or useful practice to you that you have or hope to incorporate into your daily life.

We then explore our automatic responses and reactions and see if it is possible to be aware of different urges and pause with them instead of acting on them in autopilot.  Experimenting with noticing a moment of choice - and perhaps choosing to react differently to normal.

Week Five – Soothing

Week five considers ways that we might want to activate our soothing system during difficult experiences.  Exploring which mindfulness practices you personally find soothing or calming and ways that you might be able to offer yourself kindness when needed.

Week Four Mindful Resilience Course

Week Four – Stepping Back

Week four explores how our mind knows what is real and what is imaginary.  While we know how how powerful our thoughts can be (see week three) know that thoughts are not facts can help us to step back and gain mental distance.

We try different exercises in narrowing and broadening our attention to see how it can change our perception and our experience in the present moment.

Week Three Mindful Resilience Course

Week Three – Noticing How it is

Week three explores how it is to allow difficult/ annoying / negative thoughts to be around without getting caught up and carried away by them.

We experiment with different exercises to help be aware to how powerful our thoughts can be and the physical affect that they can have on the body.  As with previous weeks we share our experiences of the exercises to compare how they are similar and different to each other.

We then practice a new technique to help us practice getting some mental distance from our thoughts to begin to lessen the impact they have on us.
