Get Help Support Groups Workshops Mindfulness Course - Isle of Wight An 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course is now available for Wessex Cancer Trust clients on the Isle of Wight. Dates: 6th Oct - 1st Dec (not half term 27th Oct)Time: 10.00 - 12.30pm Retreat: 11th NovemberLocation: Isle of Wight Wessex Cancer Trust Support Centre The course focuses entirely on supporting the development of mindfulness so that each participant leaves with a set of skills and attitudes that will be of profound use for the rest of their lives. “Amber from Mindfulness Wiltshire was the perfect mindfulness facilitator in my opinion because she truly understands the emotional and physical trauma of someone who's had a cancer diagnosis. I was made fully aware of the course content and commitment required and Amber helped me realise that I should do this course for me - for it's only when I nourish myself that I can better support others. I learned to be aware of how I'm physically affected by a pleasant or difficult experience. This way I have been able to pause during a distressing or potentially explosive outburst and decide how I want to proceed. It's been 2 months since I first started the course and I've yet to lose control of myself which is, as my teenage testosterone-filled sons will declare, just "epic"! I've also learnt to be kinder to myself. I check in with myself during the day instead of being carried helplessly along the river of life. Learning to pay attention to the present moment experiences with an openness and curiosity and a willingness to be with whatever life throws at one is simply life changing. I am so grateful to Wessex Cancer Trust for giving me the opportunity to enrich my life.” Linda, Client from Chandler's Ford Support Centre To book your place on the course please contact us on 01983 524186 who will refer you to Amber Skyring from Mindfulness Wiltshire.
