This Mindfulness for Health course is based on the Breathworks approach to teaching Mindfulness.
“Breathworks methods could radically change your life for the better.” – Prof. Lance McCracken, Professor of Behavioural Medicine, King’s College, London
Mindfulness for Health
Chronic pain, fatigue and ill-health can feel unbearable, debilitating, and unfair. Many people at the beginning of these courses say their life feels completely overshadowed by their pain and illness. So much so that it can also affect their emotional health.
Clinical trials have shown that mindfulness meditation can be as effective as prescription painkillers, and can enhance the body’s natural healing systems. Mindfulness can also reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion, and insomnia that arises from chronic pain, fatigue and illness.
Mindfulness for Health is the unique meditation programme developed by the founder of Breathworks, Vidyamala Burch, to help her cope with severe pain and health complications following two major spinal injuries. She is now living a rich and fulfilling life, with more well-being than ever. The course has been backed with huge amounts of research, and changed the lives of thousands of people. The techniques you will learn are a mix of mindfulness, mediation, a supportive mindful movement practice and modern pain strategies.
“Mindfulness for Health has literally changed my life. I can do a lot more, and enjoy what I’m doing.”
