Full Description

Mindfulness-based courses can help you live life more in the moment, rather than spending time dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.
Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) had been proven by research to reduce the risk of relapse in recurring depression.
Mindfulness in a Frantic World has been developed by clinicians at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre as a non-clinical adaptation of MBCT so that the wider general public can benefit from learning mindfulness skills and learn to apply them to everyday life.

Numerous psychological studies have shown that regular meditators are happier and more contented than average. Research shows that mindfulness can help decrease anxiety, depression and irritability. Learning mindfulness improves memory and reaction times become faster. Regular meditators enjoy better and more fulfilling relationships.
Studies worldwide have found that meditation reduces the key indicators of chronic stress, including hypertension.
Meditation has also been found to be effective in reducing the impact of serious conditions such as chronic pain and cancer and it can even relieve drug and alcohol dependence.
Studies have now shown that meditation bolsters the immune system and thus helps to fight off colds, flu and other diseases.
