Meditation & Relaxation

Ockment Centre, Okehampton

Who is this course for?

Using established and effective meditation and relaxation methods, this course will teach you how to re-connect with the natural positivity and wellbeing within you and, practically, how you can deepen and strengthen this through regular practice in your daily life.

What you learn is underpinned by Mindfulness throughout. Mindfulness is now proven to be as good, if not better than medication for relieving anxiety and depression and is recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) as an evidence-based treatment for depression.

If you like to take charge of stress, feel more peace & happiness and develop a more positive relationship with yourself, then this course is for you!

Course content

In this course you will learn how to:

o Build inner strength, peace, positivity, resilience, clarity and focus through Pure Meditation Foundation

o Relax deeply through focused Relaxation techniques using the breath, body and visualisation.

o Release tension and feel energised and relaxed (at the same time!) through some easy, gentle relaxing stretches, which will be taught sensitively and tailored to individual need.

The course will also enable you to:-

• Take charge of stressful thoughts & emotions and develop your ability to put your mind at ease

• Develop focus & concentration

• Reduce self criticism and judgement and increase compassion and empathy towards yourself and others.

• Improve sleep and reduce the risk of headaches, migraines & other tension-related problems

…. and more

Support and feedback

Through your practice of the Mindfulness exercises taught and the impact on your life.

Paul will give each learner feedback within the sessions or outside of the sessions (as appropriate).

Additional costs and requirements

You will need to wear loose clothing, or at least clothing that is not too restrictive.

Please bring a notebook and pen.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

Paul will encourage you to practice what you learn outside of the sessions as this will help to consolidate your learning and notice the effect on your daily life of practicing Mindfulness. However, this is a recommendation rather than a requirement and how much/little you do is entirely your choice.
