Everything you need to know about 8- week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course + Booking info
Is it for me?
If you are interested in learning a useful skill that will help you cope with stress and the challenges of everyday life, the worries of today's world (pandemic, inflation, war...) and uncertainty of tomorrow (what's next?) then mindfulness can be for you. If you feel you need support in helping you improve your mental health and well-being and allow you to live a happier life... then this mindfulness course might be for you ?.
What is MBSR?
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a blend of meditation, mind & body awareness, breath work and mindful yoga. During the course the participants learn to be more in the present moment and cultivate inner peace and find out how our bodies handle (and can resolve) stress neurologically ?. The MBSR course offers you a lot of practice, good support from the group and the teacher, time for your own reflection and a bit of theory - all really well-balanced. The MBSR has strict standards of practice and is taught all around the world by certified teachers.
What are the benefits of regular mindfulness practice?
If you practise systematically, you can:
? lower your stress levels & anxiety,
? reduce temporary negative feelings,
? improve focus & productivity,
? enhance self-esteem,
? get better sleep,
? boost your energy,
? improve mood and happiness,
? appreciate life more.
The list does not exhaust all benefits ?.
Is an MBSR course a therapy?
No, and I'm not a certified therapist/psychologist. Mindfulness, yoga or other spiritual practices are not therapy and they shouldn't replace it. But mindfulness is a healing approach that combines the elements of talk therapy and group therapy - through our own experience and of others we can learn and thrive.
How long is the course?
The MBSR course is designed as an 8-week course with weekly Saturday meetings and the Mindful Day (Sunday, 7th May 10am-4:30pm).
Saturday 10:30am meetings: 25th March, 1st April, 15th April, 22nd April, 29th April, 6th May, 13th May, 20th May.
Who teaches the course?
Magda Grygolec. I'm a certified mindfulness for kids (Youth Mindfulness, Bristol, UK) and MBSR teacher (Polski Instytut Mindfulness Polim and the Institute for Mindfulness Based Approaches, IMA). I spent a quality of my adult life in the UK studying languages & working in education. Currently, a happy mum based in Warsaw.
Where do we meet?
Przy Iluzjonie, Czułe Miejsca
ul. Narbutta 48/5, Warszawa
How many people are in the group?
The maximum number for this group is 10 participants. The minimum number of participants to start the course is 4. The group usually consists of people with different nationalities and experiences that adds to the lovely vibe we create together.
How much is it?
This course costs 1300pln (Early Bird offer - 1150pln for bookings by the end of Feb).
It includes the interview with a participant, 8 meetings (each lasts 2,5 hours, but 1st and 8th meetings are around 3,5 hours, the Mindful Silent Day (say, what?), online materials, MBSR student handbook and all audios for the home practice. You can pay the course fee in two or three installments.
The hot and cold beverages, snacks for the Silent Day, all equipment - cushions, mats and blankets are in the studio. So all you need to do is turn up at the meetings :).
What meditation/mindfulness experience do I need?
None. The course is designed for both beginners and people who have practised mindfulness before, but maybe need support from a teacher and a group. Being surrounded by like minded and supportive people boosts our motivation and generates good energy ?
What do I need to take this course?
I will not lie to you - you need time to commit for regular sessions (meeting once a week for around 2,5h) and in-between for your home practice (around 30-45 mins per day depending on the week). You also need some quiet spot at home where you will not be disturbed.
