Mindfulness for Every Day Living

10-week accredited short course

Mindfulness meditation is fast becoming a mainstream, recommended approach for improved health, well-being and performance in the Western world. It has applications for general self-development, specific clinical concerns and/or spiritual growth. Meditation cultivates in us the ability to free ourselves from our habitual responses to think, feel and act with a new sense of clarity and purpose in both every day and major moments of life.

Student Profiles

"I found the course most enjoyable. I have a keen interest in psychology and was curious to discover more about mindfulness. The psychological theory supported by research and neuroscience, combined with practical strategies and experiences, was quite fascinating. Dean's amazing depth of knowledge and excellent teaching skills further enhanced the experience. The course was not only useful, it was transformational."
