Mindfulness in Schools Project .begin programme
Overview of workshop:
.begin introduces you to mindfulness over eight weeks via group sessions of approximately 90 minutes per week.
The course is delivered via video conferencing, allowing real-time interaction with your group.
.begin combines the convenience of a live online course with the intimacy of live, face-to-face delivery.
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
.begin is an introduction to mindfulness for the purpose of supporting participants in terms of their own understanding of mindfulness and general wellbeing. .begin does not involve training to teach mindfulness to young people or adults.
If you are interested in teaching mindfulness to your pupils, 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 Paws b curriculum (for 7 – 11 year-olds) or our .b curriculum (for 11 – 18 year-olds).
