Mindful Based Living Course
About the Course
In this fast-paced world of 24-hour news, digital, and social stimulation, our brain is processing beyond its natural capacity. It has never seemed more essential than it is today to practice mindfulness.
Due to the our modern lifestyles there is a disproportionate amount of people in the world suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and other chronic health conditions and it’s on the rise. People are desperately seeking some peace of mind.
Practising Mindfulness daily helps us find that peace through
regulating the nervous system, lowering blood pressure, heart
rate, build inner resources of resilience and confidence and
find inner stillness.
Regular daily Mindfulness practice has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, PTSD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, improve sleep patterns and many other conditions that affect our ability to manage our day to day lives.
This is an 8 week Accredited Mindfulness Based Living Course by the Mindfulness Association in the UK delivered by Mia Middleton. It helps you
understand the reasons why we do the things we do, how to address them, how to maintain your learning and progress. It furnishes you with a library of tools and techniques to assist you in your Mindfulness journey and also offers you an on-going life-long community of support to help you build on your mindful way of living.

How I will Learn
The Course will be delivered in live online sessions using the Zoom application with the Tutor.
The duration of the class will be 2 hours once a week. Each 2 hour session will have a 15 minute comfort break halfway through.
These sessions are experiential, which means we are all active in our learning.
You will be introduced to a range of tools and techniques including a journal to record and integrate your learning into daily life.
As well as weekly support and access to audio downloads you will also receive daily motivational texts from me to help maintain your practice.
There will be a full day of practice offered in between weeks 6 and 7. We will deepen our practices and iron out issues and difficulties that we naturally experience on our mindfulness journey. (This is part of the course. There is no extra charge).
In addition to this full package to assist in your Mindfulness development, you will be part of a growing movement creating the most incredible wave of change all over the world. You will also have the option of becoming a member of the Mindfulness Association, where you can access other
avenues of the Buddhist tradition of Mindfulness practices.
