Mindful Stress Reduction

This 4-week course introduces the practice of mindfulness in a simple, practical way. The course focuses on reducing stress, although participants report a range of other benefits. Sessions run 730 to 9pm for 4 consecutive Monday nights. I am also able to provide courses in your workplace.

In the course, you will learn how to establish a daily mindfulness meditation practice, beginning with a sustainable amount (10 minutes a day) and building from there. I will then teach you how to apply mindfulness in your life to:

  • Improve focus
  • Learn to accept difficult experiences
  • Deal more effectively with emotions
  • Increase focus, memory and productivity
  • Overcome limiting thoughts and beliefs
  • Communicate more mindfully
  • Increase empathy

The course is suitable for people experiencing stress, anxiety or depression, as well as anyone wanting to improve their productivity, relationships and general wellbeing. No prior experience with mindfulness or meditation is necessary, although people with previous experience regularly attend and find it beneficial for integrating mindfulness more fully into their lives.

The course costs $295 which includes a manual and a recorded mindfulness practices. A rebate of $126.60 is available with a Medicare mental health care plan.

Mindful Learning

This innovative five week program supports students in developing a regular mindfulness practice and then teaches them how to apply mindfulness to:

  • Reduce stress
  • Enhance concentration and memory
  • Increase motivation
  • Overcome procrastination
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Be gentler with themselves (while simultaneously increasing productivity)
  • Maximise learning

Other programs teach basic mindfulness techniques and then leave it up to you to figure out how to apply it to your studies. The Mindful Learning program explicitly teaches you how to apply mindfulness principles to improve your performance.

This program is particularly useful for high school and tertiary students who are experiencing academic difficulties, as well as those seeking a competitive edge.

This program is offered on demand and can be run at your school or university. Contact me on 0422 830 633 or hello@drrichardchambers.com for more information.
