Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Perth course is an 8-Week program with 2.5 hour weekly classes, a 7 hour retreat day, course book and access to audio recordings to support you in establishing a daily mindfulness practice.

 

MBSR is the gold standard in secular, meaning non-religious, mindfulness education and support. Founded by Professor Jon Kabat-Zinn, at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in 1979, MBSR has been the catalyst for the proliferation of mindfulness programs, in their many different forms, across the western world.

 

During this 8-week mindfulness training, you will learn ways you to ride the waves of life in a more resilient and responsive way, opening up the possibility for you to choose how you respond, rather than react to life’s stressors at home, school, work and in the community.

The Classes

During the classes you will learn practical ways for enhancing your awareness and managing the pressures of life. You will learn and practice mindfulness meditations including the body scan, mindful eating, mindful breathing, sitting and walking meditation and gentle mindful movement exercises. There will be some short lectures, exercises to explore and transform patterns of thinking and feeling, and time for questions and discussion.

Course Materials

In your first class, you will receive a 120 page detailed course book to assist you in your learning and online access to audio recordings of guided meditation instructions, to assist your home practice. Please bring course book to each class.

Daily Practice

The course is structured to help you engage in daily home guided meditation practices which are central to experiencing the sense of peace, joy and resilience that the program can offer. The skills and knowledge you will be developing can only be learned through direct experience over time created through the practice. 

Retreat Day

This eight week course includes a 7 hour retreat day, a time for you to immerse fully in the practices and tranquility of the meditations learnt during the 8-weeks.

Support

The teacher of your course, is available between sessions by phone or email to support you in practicing the skills learnt in your weekly MBSR classes.

Cost

I aim to make the benefits of attending the MBSR course available to anyone, no matter their personal circumstances, therefore if you are experiencing genuine financial hardship, please contact us. For those who can afford the fee, we ask that you pay the full course fee.

 

The venue for the in-person course allows for comfortable physical distancing.

The full course fee for in-person MBSR is $695, however, I do not want to exclude anyone from taking this course, and encourage you to be in touch to discuss payment plans or reduced course fees if you are experiencing financial hardship.

One to One Mindfulness Coaching and Support

If group-based mindfulness skills training doesn't quite resonate with you, perhaps one-on-one mindfulness coaching would be a better fit. In these personalised sessions, we'll delve into mindfulness practices and strategies for mindful living, tailored specifically to your unique needs and circumstances to unlock the transformative power of mindfulness in your life.

Alternatively, you may prefer to journey through the full 8-week MBSR or MSC courses with me, receiving personalised guidance and support in fully online sessions. Each class will last 1.5 hours, providing ample time for in-depth exploration and practice.

To determine the best approach for you, I offer a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation. During this session, we'll discuss your goals and preferences, ensuring that the chosen path aligns with your needs.

Mindful Coaching sessions are conducted via Zoom, and if you're new to the platform, I'm more than happy to assist you in getting acquainted with its features.

Please be in touch to learn more about how mindfulness coaching can support your journey towards greater health, well-being and resilience.
