This course provides a comprehensive foundation training in the principles and practical techniques of Mindfulness, with the core skills (and the essence of the underlying philosophy of Mindfulness) distilled into four gently paced modules.
These four modules are explored in a structured way over a five week time window - four weeks of gradual, in-depth learning combined with a pause week in the middle, which provides an opportunity to reflect on (and fully digest and apply) the teaching and practices shared in the first half of the program, before moving on to the second half. 
  • Expert tuition from a highly experienced and respected Mindfulness teacher
  • All course materials provided, including a progressive series of guided meditations
  • One-to-one support for all online students

About The Course

This four part program of study, meditation and practical exercises is a unique opportunity to learn the core aspects of Mindfulness in a condensed but authoritative way - and to build the techniques of Mindfulness into your daily life over a four to five week period in a way that's sustainable for the long-term.

The course is led by one of Nottingham's principal Mindfulness teachers, Shaun Glossop (who also hosts the Nottingham Mindfulness Group's popular open meetings), and it consists of the following four modules:

Week One: Mindfulness of Body & Breath
We begin by learning how to 'come home' to the body and to the breath, discovering that this skill-set is a powerful and highly effective way to find calmness and inner-peace amid the busyness, pressures, worries, and difficulties of modern, day-to-day life.

Week Two: Managing Difficult Emotions with Mindfulness
In week two we learn to better manage our emotions
 by applying the techniques of Mindfulness to the constantly changing flow of our emotional state (and we thereby learn that we can, in fact, manage our emotions - rather than our emotions managing us!). We also discover the keys that Mindfulness provides which enable us to acquire much greater emotional resilience in the face of life's challenges and upheavals.

There will be a one week break in the learning at this point, to give everyone an opportunity to reflect on (and fully digest and apply) the principles covered in the first half of the program before we move on to the second half of the course.

Week Three: Clearing The Mind & Untangling From Thoughts
In this week we learn how to cultivate a new relationship with our thinking, learning to relate to our thoughts as "just thoughts" (and not facts), and learning to 'step-back' from our thought stream in order to become the 'detached observer' of our thinking (rather than us getting caught-up and entangled inside our own thinking).

Week Four: Mindfully Engaging with Ourselves, Others & The World
To conclude, we learn how to live Mindfully in a broader sense, exploring how we can use the principles and practices of Mindfulness to transform and calm our relationship with ourselves, and our relationship with the world around us - opening the door to greater joy, meaning and personal fulfilment.

Each week's course work and teaching will be available to all participants online (for more on this see the panel opposite, or below if you're reading this page on a phone) and there will be the opportunity for those who wish to do so to attend a weekly live class by webinar in order to explore the week's material as a shared experience in the company of other students, all under Shaun's expert tuition.

There will be no live webinar class on 8th April as this is the pause week.

Additional support (and friendly contact between students) will be available to all participants through a private online forum and chat room, as well as during the weekly live webinar sessions hosted by Shaun that will include a question and answer segment.

(Note: due to the coronavirus emergency, the optional in-person classes that were planned for Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm in the Nottingham city centre have been suspended for the moment, and these are replaced by the live webinar classes that are open to all participants.)

The course begins at 6.30pm on Wednesday 25th March (the time of the first live webinar class) and it runs through to the end of the fourth and final webinar class on Wednesday 22nd April. Online resources will be available to all participants from the start of the course and throughout this five week period (note: this period includes Easter week), and they will then remain available to all participants online on an on-going basis after this.

Each module's online materials will consist of:

  • A full set of study notes and worksheets for the week in pdf format providing further teaching and detailed guidance 
  • Guided meditations for use during the week in mp3 format (these can be streamed or downloaded)
In addition, participants will have access to a private course online forum and chat room were they can ask questions and engage in online conversations and exchanges with other course participants, plus once a week there will be a 90 minute webinar were all participants can take part in a live question and answer session with the course leader. This will provide an opportunity for a wider group discussion about how people are getting on with the modules and course work, and it will also enable those course participants who wish to do so to engage and interact live with each other and the course leader - so providing a communal and social aspect to the online program. (A recorded version of each week's webinar will be made available to those participants who are unable to take part at the time.)

Students who find they need further support can also book a one-to-one tutorial session or consultation with the course leader, as needed. This will be held via Skype, Zoom, Facetime or phone at a mutually convenient time.

This range of online resources, group interaction, and one-to-one support is designed to ensure that all participants can get the full benefits of the program.

Important - Mindfulness and other forms of meditation are safe and appropriate practices for the vast majority of people and they are proven to offer a wide range of benefits, including the lowering of stress and deep levels of relaxation. However current research indicates that all forms of meditation (including Mindfulness) may be unwise for people with bipolar vulnerability or those who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), unless it is conducted under clinical supervision. If you are currently receiving treatment for any form of mental health issue (or have received such treatment in the recent past, or have reason to believe that you might need such treatment), you should consult your doctor or health care professional before engaging with Mindfulness or any form of meditation.
