Event type: Recovery, Event type: Wellbeing, ONLINE MBCT – 18:00 – 20:00 (started on 20/10/2021)
Event Type: Mental Health,
Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest
Zoom

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. The heart of MBCT is gentle, systematic training in Mindfulness .A definition of mindfulness is being able to bring direct, open hearted awareness to what you are doing , while you are doing it. Being able to tune in to what’s going on in your mind and body, and in the outside world, moment by moment. This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.
