Mindfulness Practice Groups - online LIVE
It is hard to verbalise the surprisingly profound impact this experience (so much more than a course) has had on me. It has been so complete—spiritually,
emotionally, professionally and intellectually.
Something quite precious can be discovered in the MBSR program - which you may want to tend and grow through having the support of a teacher and a group
of fellow-travellers to practice with each week.
Now you can attend a Zoom group, with the MBSR teacher of your choice, from the comfort of your own home or office or car! In this six week program,
we will offer a theme each week, and practice together, followed by some time for exploring our practice and lives - just as we do in MBSR.
This practice group is an alive, personalised, responsive, real-time engagement between the teacher, the participants and the practice. The cost
of the six week program is $129 and the venue is your place.
PRE-REQUISITE: Please note that this online practice group is suitable for people who have some experience of mindfulness meditation already - for
example - for those who have completed the MBSR course or equivalent. It is not an introduction to mindfulness.

Relevant prior immersion would be any eight-week program
like MBSR, MBCT or MICBT. Other forms of intro training - like an app, ACT or DBT usually doesn't provide the basics in the way an eight-week practice-based
I need to miss a couple of sessions. Is this OK?
That is fine. It is not a drop-in group. The places in the program are limited, so your place will be held for you, even though you may miss some
What equipment will I need?
We like to use Zoom because this enables the teacher and all participants to see each other and speak simultaneously, just like in a regular class.

- A high-speed broadband connection
- A webcam
- A microphone and speakers (built-in or separate headset with microphone)
- If using Windows, a DirectX 9.0c compatible video card
