“In each woman, in each man, in each child, there is a capacity of waking up, of
understanding, and of loving. Some people allow it to develop, and some do not, but
everyone has it” (excerpt from Thich Nhat Hanh’s book Being Peace)
The Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC) was developed by the Mindfulness
Association UK, an organisation who have compassion at the heart of all they do. Their
courses are recognised by the British Association of Mindfulness Based approaches
(BAMBA). MBLC training is heavily influenced by neuroscience which provides evidence of
changes in the structure and function of the brain following mindfulness training and by work by Professor Paul Gilbert in evolutionary physcology which supports greater compassion to self and other.
Alongside countless personal accounts of the benefits of mindfulness,
research suggests a host of physcological and physiological benefits related to the training
e.g. improvements in stress management, reduced BP, improvements in pain management,
greater resilience, well being and self kindness. Little by little we train in awareness,
kindness and acceptance. We can learn to befriend ourselves no matter what challenges
arise and learn to trust our own deep wisdom and inner wealth.
The course consists of eight classes, which are typically one and half to two hours long.
Additionally there is an introductory class before the eight week course begins and a follow
up support session. A day of mindfulness practice is also typically included between Weeks
6 and 7.
The weekly themes are:
Introductory Session – What is Mindfulness and Why Practice It?
Week 1 – Start Where We Are
Week 2 – The Body as a Place to Stay Present
Week 3 – Introducing Mindfulness Support
Week 4 – Working with Distraction
Week 5 – Exploring the Undercurrent
Week 6 – Attitude of the Observer•Day of Practice
Week 7 – Self-Acceptance
Week 8 – A Mindfulness Based Life
Follow Up – The Rest of Your Life
The classes will be hosted in Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin on Thursday evenings
7.30pm – 9.30pm (approx) commencing April 6th 2023 (introductory session)
