This mindfulness course emphasises practicality for busy people or those looking for straightforward and simple yet powerful practices. This is a ‘low-dose’ course with strong effects.

This course is an abbreviated version of ‘MBCT’ low dose. Prof. Williams of Oxford University developed a low-dose version of his MBCT programme outlined in the best-selling book: “Mindfulness: finding peace in a frantic world”. This has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide in 19 languages and one in eight of households in the UK are reported to hold a copy. And The BeingWell brings this book to life in a class format that you can enjoy and discuss with others.
