MBSR was developed by Jon Kabat Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre in the USA and has been used over thirty years to help people living with a range of long-term conditions including persistent pain.

What to expect from this course?

This free 8-week programme is designed to help participants to understand how stress affects our experience in any moment and learn strategies that offer alternative ways to be with stress.

The course will be held over Zoom, and you will be introduced to a variety of mindfulness practices including body scanning, mindfulness of movement and sitting meditation.

The course will be run by Diarmuid Denenny, a chartered physiotherapist who works in a large chronic pain management centre in central London.

Who will benefit from this course?

The course is suitable for anyone interested in mindful practice, whether you’re completely new to it, or wishing to enhance your existing skills.

If you would like to add meditation to your self-management skills under the guidance of a trained mindfulness teacher, this course may be for you.

The course requires participants to commit to regular home practice – mindfulness is like physical exercise: if we do more, we tend to have more benefit.
