Eight Week Mindfulness-Based Living Course (MBLC) Overview
The Eight Week Mindfulness-Based Living Course (MBLC) is an experiential course, with the main emphasis being on meditation practice. Teacher-talk time is kept to a minimum to allow for more practice and inquiry in class and support around the home practice. During the course there will be pair work, readings and group sharing (known as inquiry) to aid learning and participation. There will also be some gentle movement and walking.
The MBLC aims to provide a safe secular space where your meditation practice can be nurtured. The class size may be as small as 4 people with a maximum of 15 (venue depending). To get a positive group dynamic it’s hoped that all participants treat each other, the facilitator and themselves with kindness and respect, as best they can.
Please note the final session will contain some extended guided silent practice. At this stage the meditations will be more spacious and have less guidance. At the end of the session we will reflect on the practice and say goodbye.
Home practice is an essential part of the MBLC and will take about 30-40 minutes each day during the course. If you cannot commit to this level of home practice this may not be the best time to undertake the course. It is also expected that participants read the relevant section of the workbook each week, which will be given out in the first session.
