MBSR / MBCT Courses in Bath and Bristol
- 2016 our tenth anniversary
Welcome to the tenth year of the Bath and Bristol Mindfulness Meditation Courses with Philippa Vick - including the MBSR / MBCT Eight Week Mindfulness Course, Deepening Mindfulness and Mindfulness for Health Professionals courses.
Mindfulness can help us be with physical and emotional stress, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. Not by rejecting our experience but by learning to be present with it in a consciously spacious and kindly way - that is mindfully.
Mindfulness helps us know a stillness in the middle of our busy minds and be less afraid to feel what scares us. It is not a quick ﬁx nor a miracle cure, it does take work on our part, but what it offers is real and lasting, and of beneﬁt to others.
The Bath and Bristol Mindfulness MBSR/MBCT Courses were started by Philippa Vick in 2006 and have been completed by over six hundred participants. Since then she has been joined by Laurence Milburn, Suzanne Cowderoy, Nigel Wellings and Julia Richmond who together with her now facilitate the courses.
Our courses particularly emphasise the importance of generosity, kindness, curiosity and humour, knowing that these qualities are of vital importance once we start the journey towards welcoming everything, pleasurable and painful, found within ourselves. Each facilitator brings their own particular skills drawing on depth psychotherapy and clinical psychology as well as many years involvement with several meditative traditions.
