Fully Booked: Workshop 1 is also available on January 4th & 5th and July 26th & 27th 2014.

This course provides an introduction to the concept and practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness-based approaches are being used in an ever increasing range of fields particularly after NICE recommended their use for preventing relapse in people with recurrent depression.

The workshop is suitable for students and practitioners working in health, social and complementary practice. The origins, philosophy and theoretical basis of mindfulness will be explored with reference to the ever-increasing evidence base. However, the main focus of the workshop will be experiential mindfulness practice sessions with a focus on how such mindfulness-based approaches can be integrated in professional practice.

The mindfulness-approaches you will have the opportunity to learn have been specifically developed to be integrated into one-to-one professional practice: they form a clearly boundaried set of approaches called Mindful Resilience Enhancement (MRE). These approaches are designed to be quickly and easily taught to clients in the session and then the client can practice them between sessions. In our experience professionals find that when their clients start to practice mindfulness it enhances the client’s responsiveness to the other interventions being offered.

MRE is supported by an extensive set of free to access audio files and information sheets. This ensures that you or your clients using these approaches are not burdened by additional expenses.


This weekend forms the first part of a professional teacher-training programme in MRE. MRE teacher-training is in 2 levels and a pathway to a competency certificate is available after each level. Level 1 MRE teacher-training focuses on teaching clients to stabilise their attention and self-soothe. Level 2 MRE teacher-training focuses on teaching clients how to turn towards difficulty they are experiencing with self-compassion.

Please see www.mre.re for further details of this approach. An overview of the philosophy and structure of MRE teacher-training is available here.

The 3 MRE Level 1 workshops are as follows:
