These courses are open to the general public and we invite anyone who would like to live a life with less stress and more awareness. Beginners are welcome. No prior knowledge, or experience with, mindfulness practices is required. (They also meets one of the requirements for applying to the Mindful Academy MBSR Teacher Training program)
On those difficult days, when a frontier looms,
decisions seem called for
and the armies of your mind muster
and set off on a headlong gallop
towards the horizon,
they make so much noise
that the heart's soft voice
is drowned out,
and kick up so much dust
that compassion's anchor loses purchase.
The faster the armies gallop,
the farther away the horizon seems,
the bumpier the path
and the cloudier the dusty air

I am delighted to have finally got my MBSR outreach project up and running, taking the first completely free course to a group of local yoga teachers based in Makeni, Northern Province, Sierra Leone.
I offered the MBSR several times during my time in Ethiopia and always made provision for subsidised/sponsored places within my fee-paying courses to promote accessibility and inclusion but in Sierra Leone felt ready for a more radical approach to enable broader, more comprehensive access and exposure to skills training in mindfulness for resilience and well-being.

In 2005, Jon Kabat-Zinn published his magnum opus, Coming to Our Senses. At 650 pages and years in the making, it was a monumental achievement. It allowed the founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction to put his life’s work in a larger context. Mindfulness is not a mental trick, an adjunct to regular life. It’s a basic human inheritance that is essential to life.
LAST MONTH, IN advance of its annual Stress in America report, the American Psychological Association released what will likely be counted among the most obvious research findings of 2016. The presidential election, concluded the APA, was a source of significant anxiety for the country. Regardless of party, over half of American adults surveyed felt very or somewhat stressed by the election. Gasps could be heard from across nowhere.
