This course consists of Mindfulness and Meditation practices and is designed for beginners and those who have already begun a Mindfulness practice. The reason why it is suitable for both groups of people is that it is a unique course, designed by Carmel Farnan (founder of the Irish Mindfulness Academy) who has based this course on her combined learnings of Mindfulness in the USA and UK. She has brought the latest Mindfulness research to this course. This research states that when learnings from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Positive Psychology are introduced alongside Mindfulness teachings then existing problematic thinking styles such as anxiety, stress, worry and sometimes even depression can be reduced and at best eliminated. A mind freed of these problematic thinking styles then has the capacity to experience deeper levels of Mindfulness and happiness.
