MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) is an 8-week foundation course that provides an introduction to the practice of mindfulness and is suitable for adults who are ready to invest in their health and wellbeing. There will be plenty of opportunity for each participant to get the guidance they need to establish their own personal mindfulness meditation practice.

 

MBSR is a certificated course that gives you the grounding for any further specialist training in mindfulness and to move on to teacher training courses if you wanted to in the future.

 

In an effort to make the course accessible to all I am offering a sliding scale of fees, from which you can choose as fits your means without requiring any proof, we call this 'trust basis' - you pay what you can honestly afford- £195/ 225/ 255

 

The course will be held at the University of Dundee Chaplaincy 

on Saturday mornings from 10am until 12.30pm on the following dates:

January 11th, 18th, 25th, February 1st, 8th, 

Full practice day 10am-4pm on Saturday 15th February (held in countryside location very close to Dundee)

Feb 22nd, March 7th, March 14th

 

To receive the certificate you cannot miss more than one or two sessions and you must attend the silent day of practice.

Please email Stephanie in the with your application form to begin the booking process: stephaniefgooding@gmail.com and type "MBSR" in the subject line.

 

Before making a payment please arrange a short informal chat (in person or by phone/ zoom) with Stephanie to check the suitability of the course for you at the current time. If you experience a significant challenging life event near to the time of the course start it will be important to review suitability (fees would of course be refunded if that were the case).

 

The 8 week course is an immersive experience, each class being 2.5 hours and home practice each week of around an hour, that will gradually extend through your normal daily activities so that over the duration of the course you will have integrated mindfulness into your daily life. In addition, a full day of silent (guided) practice is included.

 

Mindfulness Training is about ‘waking up’ to be with reality as it is, with an open, non-judging mind. Mindfulness has roots in Buddhism, however this is a non-religious course that is about opening to our own experience. This is not about trying to attain any state of relaxation, nor is it all about meditation, it is about developing an awareness of how things really are, without grasping at how we wish  they were different. 

 

Stephanie Gooding is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, HCPC registered, who has practiced mindfulness for around 20 years both for herself and professionally with clients of ages 12 to 75 and over. (This course is for adults age 18+). She has undertaken specialist training with the Mindfulness Network and Bangor University and has a background in study and practice of Mahayana Buddhism.
