Why learn mindfulness?

High quality evidence shows the benefits of an eight-week mindfulness course, benefits include:

  • a reduction in stress, burnout and anxiety
  • a reduction in the sense of task and time pressure
  • an improved ability to manage thoughts and behaviour
  • an increase in coping skills, motivation, planning and problem solving
  • an increase in self-compassion and self-care

What is .begin?

.begin introduces you to mindfulness over eight weeks via group sessions of approximately 90 minutes per week, usually in the evening.

The course is delivered via video conferencing, allowing real-time interaction with your group whilst being led by a highly experienced MiSP instructor.

.begin combines the convenience of a live online course that you can complete in the comfort of your own home with the intimacy of live, face-to-face delivery.

“Not only has the .begin course given me a new perspective on, and greater understanding of, mindfulness – it has also provided a different way of looking at life.”

“Within eight weeks I had not only found .begin had impacted upon my own life, but also helped me to think of ways to help my students.”

“The best thing about .begin is that it is offered online and you still have the sense of being on a course and connecting with other participants “

.begin was my first experience of an interactive online course and I was extremely impressed, I looked forward to each session.”
