Living in large cities like London is an inherently stressful business. Human beings - like all animals - have bodily systems designed to respond to and process stress. But we're designed for short sharp bursts not the blanket stress of living in a crowded city. The effects of a prolonged and unconscious exposure to these levels of stress are very damaging - not just to our bodies but also to our sense of self. We end up 'greying-out' more and more of our experience in order to stay sane.

But this is only the external stress of commuting, blitzkrieg advertising, media-harassment and over crowding. More damaging still are the internal stressors that we create with our thoughts. This sort of double stress (from external and internal sources) can leave us very anxious and depleted.

Mindfulness is a meditation practice with a 2,500 year pedigree and this weekend course introduces us to this incredible stress buster. Combining his experience as a long-term meditator and practising psychotherapist, Alistair works with the group to explore the causes of stress, how we perpetuate it and how we can release it and allow the body to down-regulate us back to a more vital state.

The workshop runs from 10am to 5pm with a break for lunch on both Saturday and Sunday.

You can book your place on this course via the Mind-Springs website.
