Which is the Best Mindfulness Course For You?

Choosing the best mindfulness course for you can be overwhelming, as there are many options to consider.

Here are some of the questions you should ask yourself when looking to choose a mindfulness course, so that you can find the one that best meets your needs and goals. Some of these questions might include:

1. What is your goal for learning mindfulness? Do you want to reduce stress and anxiety, improve your relationships, or simply find more peace and balance in your life?

Mindfulness Works courses have a strong focus on stress and anxiety reduction as well as self-acceptance and self-forgiveness and ways to self-regulate your nervous system. 

2. What format do you prefer for learning? Some courses are offered in person, while others are online or even in app form. Consider what works best for your schedule and learning style.

Mindfulness Works offers both local, in-person courses and online learning options. 

3. How much time and commitment are you willing to invest in learning mindfulness? Some courses may be shorter and more intensive, while others may be longer and more in-depth. Consider how much time you have available to devote to the practice.

Mindfulness Works Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation course is four weeks long. Classes are held once per week for one hour. You need to be able to commit to both attending the course (one hour per week) and also 20 minutes a day for formal practice for the length of the course. 

4. What is your budget for a mindfulness course? Prices for courses can vary widely, so it’s important to consider what you can afford.

Our aim is to make mindfulness as as accessible as possible. The Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation in-person course is only $145 for the entire course. The live and online Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation course is only $95. 

5. What type of instructor do you prefer? Some courses may be led by a trained mindfulness teacher, while others may be led by a therapist or coach. Consider what type of guidance and support you are looking for.

Mindfulness Works facilitators come from a diverse range of backgrounds. Some are therapists, some are coaches and some are mental health workers. They all have an in-depth experiential understanding of mindfulness and have been through the Mindfulness Works facilitator training programme.
