Online Mindfulness Meditation Course with Sue Brittain

Based on the Gawler Foundation

Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation Course (MBSM)

Given the current physical distance restrictions the next course will be run Online on Zoom.

The 7 week Course is structured to gently lead you into the heart and essence of meditation. Each week there will be a series of detailed teachings on how to meditate, accompanied by a sequence of meditation practice sessions. Recordings of the weekly Meditation practices will be provided with handouts to participants. This mindfulness course is well suited for both beginners and experienced meditators wishing to deepen their meditation.

Participants can expect to:

  • Learn a range of effective tools for dealing with stress and anxiety
  • Understand the nature of the thinking mind – its strengths and limitations promoting health and well being
  • Understand how ‘excessive thinking’ leads to stress and how stress affects your health and wellbeing
  • Learn to relax physically, unwind emotionally and calm a busy mind
  • Acquire skills for dealing with anger and frustration, becoming less emotionally reactive and therefore more tolerant
  • Develop self-esteem and compassion as you connect with your true, spiritual nature.
  • Develop awareness and access your own inner wisdom

Mindfulness has a range of diverse applications including management of depression, anxiety, chronic pain and eating disorders, as well as having direct and beneficial physiological effects relevant to the management of heart disease, cancer and other chronic conditions.

Why Come to the Mindfulness Meditation Course?

  • To develop mindfulness practices to help you live a happier and more enriching life
  • To learn how to nourish and nurture yourself and take those tools home to use daily

The Course is structured to progressively build on practices and theory from week to week so participation in all classes is highly recommended. For those of you who are familiar with the format of my yoga classes you will find this format quite different as it will be a more interactive process including theory, practices, discussion and feedback of your experiences of the practices. We do the class sitting on seats so you don't have to worry about sitting on the floor.

If you’re thinking that your mind is too busy to learn mindfulness, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Rest assured the Course will teach you how to deal with the busy mind. If you’re concerned your life is too busy, this Course is only 1 ½ hours a week and the home practices are very practical and short.

Have a read about what other participants of Sue’s Mindfulness Course have said about their experience.

My blood pressure has been steadily rising for months but it has magically returned to normal. The only difference in my life style has been mindfulness meditation! 

I enjoyed both the theory and practice.

Now understand my negative thought processes better therefore am more positive.

I really enjoyed the theory and background on how to be mindfully meditate and the guided meditations at home have been great recordings to come back to and use in a regular way. It's really interesting to see how the mind works and it's connection with the body and recognise behaviours and patterns that we get into that don't really serve us in the long run.

Gave me a more holistic approach on how to deal with life in general the highs and lows and having the awareness of what we can manage and what we can't and how to deal with feelings, emotions and stress in a more considered way. I’ve still got health issues and probably will for life but I think I'm in a better place to be able to manage them.

I know I feel more centred and calm when I get time to mediate even if it's for just a couple of minutes.

I think the course was well paced and designed with something new and interesting to discuss each a week. I always felt I learnt something new each a week and was interested to hear other people's experiences.

Appreciated the practicality of the course - being able to apply mindfulness into each day without it becoming another thing to do on top of everything else. The recorded meditations were great, easy to learn and integrate, fantastic variety in their length and topics/aspects they each focused on. Thank you for giving us such a range of ways to explore and experience mindfulness stillness.

The practices explored certainly provide different ways to reconnect with calmness and stillness. It was great to get to practice in the group and use the recordings at home.
