Contemporary mindfulness has become increasingly popular due to research demonstrating its effectivity in stress reduction, emotional regulation, improved attention, equanimity, kindness and general wellbeing. This 6 week course goes beyond basic stress reduction and identifies the emotional dysregulation cycle and mindful reregulation skills thereby offering a condensed yet comprehensive application of contemporary mindfulness on our busy modern lives.
