The context for this short mindfulness mini course is the global pandemic. The four sessions will provide you with a practical introduction to the foundations of mindfulness meditation. From the first session, you can begin using the various meditations to help you to manage stress and anxiety and to improve your overall sense of wellbeing.
During this short mindfulness mini course you will learn
You can complete the course in your own time but it will take you about four hours in total to go through the four sessions without the bonus practises. You might though like to complete the course over five days, a session for each of the first four days, and using the fifth day to set up your plan for building your mindfulness practise in the days and weeks ahead.
Stress and Anxiety are normal responses to challenges such as this global pandemic, but we can help ourselves.
Finding Your Steady Heart in Times of Crises and Change
Well Done - You have completed the course.
Dee Hennessy Senior Mindfulness teacher has been a mindfulness practitioner since the late eighties, teaching and leading retreats across Ireland, in Wales, Germany, and the USA. She has studied with leading teachers from both Western and Eastern Wisdom traditions, as well as having a full immersion into the neuroscience underpinning current secular mindfulness practice. Dee’s teaching is a distillation of these 25 years.
Her philosophy is simple, and underpinned by her three core beliefs:
1) Like the Dali Lama, her religion is kindness.
2) The current wave of interest in forest bathing is a reminder of what we know already – nature heals.
3) Neuroscience allows us to use short mindfulness practices to live happier and less stressed lives
Dee is a board member with All Ireland Spiritual Guides Association (AISGA) the professional body for Spiritual Companioning in Ireland and is a full member of both Mindfulness Teachers Association of Ireland (MTAI) and supervisors Association of Ireland
During the session, I listen as you share. I may occasionally question, challenge, or support you as appropriate. Ultimately, you will own whatever insights are uncovered, as well as whatever action you might take. We end the session with a short meditation, thanking Wisdom for the sacred space and the support, and asking for continued guidance and blessings in your life.
