Mindfulness for Heart and Mind
Training in Mindfulness or Kind-Awareness, like anything, needs to be consistent to notice a shift and that's what a structured eight week course, complete with group work and individual home practice is designed to do. It is perfect for those who are completely new and those looking to commit more to their current practice with the support of the course, the group and mindfulness teacher.
What are the benefits of practising Mindfulness?
- A weekly email and notes helping you explore and deepen you understanding of the themes covered in your weekly sessions. It will also include weekly Home Practice Guidance and Record Sheets to help you keep track of your progress.
- Online guided Audio Meditations to guide and support you in your home practice.
- Email support in between sessions with Cesare to discuss or elucidate any points emerging during your home practice.
- A WhatsApp group for mutual support and encouragement.
