FAQ

  • Q. I have tried mindfulness before but found I couldn't get into it, is it worth trying again?

    A. This is quite a common experience. We all absorb and retain differently and it is important to find a method of learning that suits you. That said, mindfulness is often misunderstood and some people abandon the exercises because they think that they are 'not doing it right.' This course explains some possible obstacles and how to get past them.

  • Q. How long do I have access to the course?

    A. How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.

  • Q. How long will I have to practice for?

    A. The techniques in this course are simple but they take a little time to learn. How much time it takes to learn each technique varies from person to person. That said, many people are surprised by how quickly they can learn to experience mindfulness if they follow the simple techniques.

  • Q. Will I be expected to sit still for hours?

    A. You can apply the techniques of mindfulness during most of your normal daily activities. If you would prefer to sit quietly and adopt a meditative approach, you can do that too. This course shows you how​ to personalise your practice to make use of the techniques in ways that suit you and your lifestyle.

  • Q. I want to learn mindfulness so that I can pass on the skills to others. Will. this course enable me to do that?

    A. The exercises and techniques in this course are ones that you could certainly show others, but this course is not designed as a 'train the trainer' course. The best way to encourage others to take up mindfulness is to use the techniques to improve your wellbeing and hope they follow your example when they see how you have changed.

  • Q. Mindfulness has become a bit of a buzzword, isn't it just a fad?

    A. There are many 'myths' around mindfulness. One of these is that it's just a fad which will pass. Although it has only been taught and popularised in the West for 40 years or so, it stems from practices which are several thousand years old. Mindfulness is now well researched and used in many professions, clinical settings, sport and education. As more people practice mindfulness and experience the benefits, it will evolve but it is unlikely to disappear, as fads often to.
