New LinkedIn Group for Teachers of the Peace in a Frantic World course

"Finding Peace in a Frantic World - Teachers" is a new group on LinkedIn for those teaching the course.

“Finding Peace in a Frantic World – Teachers” is a new group on LinkedIn for those teaching the course.

There’s a new LInkedIn Group for those teaching the “Peace in a Frantic World” course.  It’s only been recently that I trained to run this programme and it’s good to be connected to others who’ve been trained to run it too… so we can offer each other support, advice, tips and suggestions.

This course is an 8-week programme developed by Mark Williams and Chris Cullen.  It’s based on the best-selling book, “Mindfulness: a guide to Finding Peace in A Frantic World”, which has sold nearly 200 000 copies and been translated into 19 different languages worldwide.

What mindfulness can do for you

I was looking at the website for finding Peace in a Frantic World, and found this great page that outlines the main benefits of practising mindfulness in a simple way.  And another page with some recordings for those who may need them for practising.  I’m putting these on the Resources page, to pull together some of the useful websites that I’ve found.

Yoga for beginners

This term, I have been running two Yoga classes, one for Beginners and the other, Improvers.  It has been a real joy and reward to have these classes, as it gives an opportunity to focus on adapting the practices in more detail to meet the needs of those attending.  There will be a chance to enrol on the Summer class towards the end of the month. If you have little or no experience of yoga or have had some health concerns and need a gentle and supportive way to get back strength and mobility and would like more information about the Beginner’s class, please get in touch.  Warmly, Bernadette
