Finding Peace in a Frantic World
We are proud to deliver not only the MBCT mindfulness programme, which is designed to help people manage their depression but also the Finding Peace in a Frantic World (FPFW) programme. Frantic World is a lighter touch version of MBCT and co-developed by one of the founders of mindfulness to help everyday people manage day to day challenges with simple yet powerfully effective mindfulness techniques in and out of the workplace.
frantic or focussed?
What do we mean by mindfulness? Well simply, mindfulness is simply paying attention to the present moment in a particular way but why is that so important? Can you relate to carrying out a task but thinking about something else; being lost in thinking or distracted somehow? According to a Harvard study*, we are estimated to spend 46.9% of our waking hours distracted in the mind rather than focussing on what we are doing. It is as though we are sleepwalking through our day, if you like, on a kind of autopilot; the body is awake, the eyes are open, but we cannot see beyond the thoughts in the mind.
Why not book on to this hugely popular mindfulness course that was developed at Oxford University to help each and every one of us manage the daily challenges of life in a more positive way to simply get the most out of life!
The Finding Peace in a Frantic World programme is suited to workplace learning or the general public. With shorter weekly sessions of around 90-mins and shorter daily home practices of up 20-mins per day in comparison to MBCT/ MBSR 2.5hr sessions and home practices of 40 to 60-mins per day. A perfect introduction to more mindful based living and working.
