Join Ingrid Jolley for the inspiring 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).

MBSR is an evidence-based, user-friendly program that brings the principles of mindfulness meditation into everyday life by teaching specific skills and practices to help break cycles of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion.

Ingrid is a climate aware practitioner and climate activist and recognises the importance of prioritising self-care and wellbeing in the ongoing fight for climate justice. She welcomes climate activists to this program to support them in developing and maintaining mental, emotional, physical and psychological resilience and wellbeing.

What does MBSR involve?

• Individual support from Ingrid
• 2.5 hour class, over eight weeks, plus one full retreat day
• Mindfulness meditation and body awareness training
• An exploration of your own patterns and how to transform them
• Good conversations about things that matter
• Scientific rationale for the practice
