Mindfulness in ACTion
Thursday, 8 August 2019
to Thursday, 19 September 2019
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Science has shown how mindfulness can help you: • Reduce anxiety • Increase concentration • Live in the present moment
But, did you know that it has also been found to: • Boost immune system • Lower blood pressure • Increase will-power and self-control?
- So, what is ACT?
The Acceptance and Commitment Training approach brings together traditional mindfulness practices (observing, focusing awareness, attending, labelling) with modern behaviour analysis methods. The combination helps you identify what is important to you - your values. Then, from a place of flexible awareness and self-compassion, it becomes easier to pursue actions that serve those values.
Mindfulness in ACTion combines tradtional practices of meditation (observing your thoughts without reacting) with ACTion strategies resulting in a 6 week course that will help you learn new skills and be able to confidently address life’s challenges and improve your mental health, work-life balance, relationships and general well-being.
Every Thursday starting on the 8th of August until the 19th of September from 7-9pm.
