Mindfulness 2.0 4 Week Follow Up Course

The official Mindfulness Works four week follow up course with accredited Mindfulness Works teachers. This course is offered in-person and online.

Develop a daily mindfulness practice

One of the most debilitating aspects of modern life is self-criticism and self-judgement. This can arise in very subtle ways that endlessly plague us, telling us we should be different than we are. Mindfulness allows us to see through the lies of this self-judgement as we start to recognise and feel our own natural OKness. We are less needing to ‘improve’ or change ourselves as we accept more and more our life and ourselves, just as we are.

Experience greater joy and freedom

As we continue to practise mindfulness, we often notice a deeper appreciation of life, our environment, our relationships and our self. A sense of natural presence can start to re-emerge, which has an openness and depth to it. We are less likely to be thrown off course by the challenges in life as we have a deeper sense of connection and intimacy with our own tender humanity.

Allow more self-love

One of the most debilitating aspects of modern life is self-criticism and self-judgement. This can arise in very subtle ways that endlessly plague us, telling us we should be different than we are. Mindfulness allows us to see through the lies of this self-judgement as we start to recognise and feel our own natural OKness. We are less needing to ‘improve’ or change ourselves as we accept more and more our life and ourselves, just as we are.

Experience Safety | Satisfaction | Connection

The Mindfulness 2.0 course is an innovative approach to mindfulness and meditation. The course is based on your own experiential learning, core formal meditation, personal development practising with others, and the core components of wellbeing, safety, satisfaction and connection.

SAFETY — Understand and feel what it is like to be OK with your experience, even in difficult times. Learn to rely more and more on your own presence for your own well-being.

SATISFACTION — Realise you are OK – just as you are, even if your mind is saying something different. Discover the real benefits and joys of a regular formal meditation practice.

CONNECTION — Feel connected to something bigger than yourself and feel greater intimacy with yourself, life and with other people.
