.begin is a new 8-week mindfulness course for those who either work in a school or work within an educational setting on a regular basis.  It combines the convenience of an online course that you can complete in the comfort of your own home with the intimacy of live, face-to-face delivery. Apart from the benefits you might find in practising mindfulness, those who complete the .begin course and continue to practise mindfulness on a regular basis can then qualify for further training to teach either our .b curriculum (for 11 – 18 year-olds) or Paws b (for 7 – 11 year-olds).

After a 30-45 minute orientation on Wednesday 25th April, .begin takes the form of 8 weekly sessions of approximately 90 minutes, from 6.30 – 8.00pm. There will also be home practice of around 20 minutes per day.

In particular, people who have recently experienced trauma or bereavement, or severe physical or mental illness, should consult with their GP or other medical adviser before undertaking any form of mindfulness training or practice.

For more information, please read the following article by Ruth Baer and Willem Kuyken.
