Am I right for the course?

This course is a basic introduction to Mindfulness meditation and Mindful living techniques. Designed for those with either very little or no prior previous experience who want to learn Mindfulness meditation to live mindfully, day by day, in order to manage stress and alleviate its negative effects on health and wellbeing.

Students need to be over 50 to join. You need to be open minded about learning to meditate using Mindfulness techniques and learning experiential techniques for Mindful living. Students need to be willing to do homework each week which consists, mainly, of practicing Mindful techniques in their daily lives and/or practicing Mindful meditation. They may also have to undertake brief internet research or read brief articles about Mindfulness.

Individuals will be assessed through answering questions in group discussions, the completion of the assigned exercises in class, participation in exercises, effective completion of the homework through their self-reported use of the techniques that they have learned in the class. Also assessment through peer assessment, gathering feedback from their peers/fellow students when working together in pairs.
