Mindfulness Course for Health Conditions

with Mihaela


Chronic pain and illness are common, disabling, exhausting inner resources and affecting pretty much all aspects of a person’s life. Medication provides some relief but it is often not enough to ensure a good life, as many times the overall quality of life remains low.

Mindful meditation and specially adapted mindful movements techniques provide are valuable tools for addressing both the primary sufferance, but also, most significantly, the secondary sufferance. 

This course draws knowledge from the courses of the well-known mindfulness teacher and author Vidyamala Burch, but also from other approaches that tackle pain and illness using mindfulness, such as Gardner-Nix. Furthermore, specific relevant psychological concepts are presented, in relation to the changes triggered in the mind when our health is the challenging element of our life. 

The basic method of mindfulness is used, focusing attention on body sensations, emotions, fluctuations of thoughts and breathing help the practitioner to understand the intimate mechanisms of the mind and to learn how to adjust to integrate the new health situation of your life. The experiential and interactive course is conceived to ensure progressive development, providing a safe space for observation, experimentation and learning.
