The Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC) is an eight-week course developed by the Mindfulness Association under the guidance of international mindfulness teacher Rob Nairn.
It is suitable for complete beginners or those who would like to deepen their mindfulness practice.
The MBLC is similar to other mindfulness-based courses, such as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) or Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) but has the additional benefit of including methods for developing self-compassion and compassion towards others
There is an introductory class before the eight-week course begins and a follow up class a month after the course ends.
A day of Mindfulness practice is also included between weeks 6 and 7
Each session consists of a short teaching and explanation, guided practices, group reflection and enquiry. Participants will receive a comprehensive course manual by email and audio downloads of guided meditations for home practice. (printed versions of the manual and CD versions of the practices are available if required)
