Finding Peace in a Frantic World

When the book Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World was published in 2011, it was a game changer. It built on the ideas and structure of earlier more clinically- oriented mindfulness-based programmes, but made the programme accessible to a much wider audience. The course offers mindfulness practices in ways that we can all use, and guides us in how to apply mindfulness in our everyday lives both to manage difficulties but also to cultivate joy, compassion, equanimity and wisdom. It offers a different way of living.

Finding Peace in a Frantic World runs over eight consecutive weeks.  It introduces mindfulness and provides teaching support for developing a personal mindfulness practice, and invaluable resources. It is being taught in community settings, higher education settings, and in workplaces all over the world. Since January 2013 it has been taught to parliamentarians and their staff in the UK Houses of Parliament.

When is the next course?

Our next Finding Peace course starts on Monday 21 February at 6:30pm and finishes at 8:15pm.  It runs over eight consecutive weeks.  The venue is Kambe House on Portland Square, in the heart of Bristol

How much does it cost?

The cost of the Finding Peace course is £200.  But, in the spirit of community and making this powerful tool more accessible, we offer some assisted places on a first come first served basis.

Don’t Rush

Deciding whether mindfulness is right for you, or if it’s a good time to do it, can be difficult. So we include a free interview to describe what the course entails and answer any questions you may have.

The orientation interview usually takes 30 minutes but there’s no obligation to sign up. It’s an opportunity for us both to be clear that the course is right for you.

The book, Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World, accompanies the course so you will need to purchase your own copy.  It can be found in all good book stores for around £14.  More information about the course can be found here.

Autumn MBSR Course

Our next online mindfulness course starts on Tuesday 19 October at 6:45pm-9:15pm.  The programme runs over 8 consecutive weeks and includes a silent retreat on Saturday 27 November from 1-6pm.  Like all worthwhile endeavours, full commitment to each session is important.

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction

MBSR is the gold standard of mindfulness programmes because much of the supporting research around mindfulness uses MBSR.  Plus, the curriculum has remained unchanged since Jon Kabat-Zinn first developed it in the 1970s.  Basically it just works, but your motivation and intentions are key!

The MBSR curriculum challenges participants to turn towards difficulty in order to become more familiar with how we react to it.  This can be challenging for both participant and teachers. This is why MBSR teachers must complete robust training and engage with continual professional development.  Properly trained teachers are registered with the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches (BAMBA) and must abide by their good practice guidelines.  Always look out for the BAMBA logo to help you feel confident about the course and teacher you choose.

Cost

The cost of the MBSR course is £300.  However, in the spirit of community and making this powerful tool more accessible, we offer some assisted places on a first come first served basis.

Don’t Rush

Before you make a decision it’s good practice for your teacher to talk through the course with you. This is why we include a free interview to describe what the course entails and answer any questions you may have.

The orientation interview usually takes 30 minutes and there’s no obligation to sign up after the interview.  It’s simply an opportunity for us both to be clear that the course is right for you.

We believe mindfulness can make everyone smile more.  If you are interested in our next online course please click here to book an orientation interview
