MBSR Course & Advanced Mindfulness Course – have learned a fabulous lifelong skills

Mindfulness has helped support me through a testing period of rebalancing my mental health and well-being.  Along with regular counselling, a period of medication, and a renewed focus on my own physical health (simply eating well and exercising), I have learned what a fabulous life-long skill mindfulness is. 

Now, I feel well, enjoy my work and my family and continue to practice at Glasgow mindfulness centre.
Nelum has guided me through the MBSR course and through the Advanced Mindfulness course as well as several bespoke practise sessions.  She has taken time to get to know my personal journey and has taught me this fabulous skill of self-care in a patient and caring way.

MBSR Course - you will see life through clearer eyes, your mind will be lighter and your heart will be filled with love and care

I began my mindfulness journey two years ago in September 2018, I joined the 8-week course on MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) at the Glasgow Mindfulness Centre. I felt blessed to start the course as I was going through a difficult time in my life with grieving the loss of my Mum. My wellbeing and mental health were weakened by stress and anxiety from bereavement I felt unable to cope with life. I was also suffering with a chronic condition called fibromyalgia that was intensified by my emotional distress. I could not go to work or do simple daily tasks around the house and I was beginning to feel depressed.

MBSR Course & Advanced Mindfulness Course – I can manage difficult situations in a more grounded way

I was new to Mindfulness when I asked to join the 8 week MBSR course back in September 2018. It had been recommended by a friend who, having had life changing health problems, said Mindfulness had “saved her life.”

Before I started the course I read some material by Jon Kabat Zinn (Professor of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the man responsible for bringing Eastern Meditation Practices to the West in the 1970s) and was sceptical of the claim that practicing Mindfulness could lead to significant impacts on both your physical and mental health; I had usually been pretty scathing about any ‘alternative therapies’.

MBSR Course – Online – It’s given me a toolbox full of strategies

I first contacted Nel as I was keen to complete the 8 week MBSR course in order to undertake the Mindfulness in Schools Project’s ‘Teach Paws b’ training with a colleague. As primary school teachers we are acutely aware of the importance of children’s mental health and were hopeful that developing a culture of Mindfulness within our school would help children to deal with challenges, especially the return to school after lockdown.

On booking the course, I really did not anticipate the impact it would have on me personally. I have lived with anxiety for a few years and spend a lot of time trying to ignore it! This course has made me stop and take notice of how I am feeling and given me a toolbox full of strategies to cope with stressful situations.

MBSR Course – Online – Complete awakening

The 8-week MBSR course has been a complete awakening for me. I always thought I knew a little about meditation and mindfulness but I had totally underestimated mindfulness and its transformational power. I learnt about the importance of developing my own practice and I grew to value the investment in myself more and more as the weeks progressed.

The MBSR has given me a range of strategies and tools for managing my stress levels and for taking care of my own mental health and wellbeing. Learning to be kind to myself and others and approach every moment from a place of kindness and non-judgment has given me a totally different lense through which to look at the world. I now approach things very differently in my everyday life.

MBSR Course & Advanced Mindfulness Course – Wealth of experience of Mindfulness

I really enjoyed studying with Nelum at Glasgow Mindfulness Centre on the eight-week MBSR course and also the excellent Advanced Mindfulness classes. Nel is such a cheerful, encouraging and supportive person with a wealth of experience of Mindfulness and Buddhist practice. I am very grateful for her kindness, sharing these important and wonderful teachings, taking the extra time to answer all my questions and giving me practical advice. As a practitioner with experience of several forms of meditation, I heartily recommend Nel as a skilful and compassionate teacher.

MBSR Course & Advanced Mindfulness Course – many in-depth group discussions

I was drawn to Mindfulness at the end of 2018 and went on to complete the 8 week MBSR course at the beginning of 2019.  I cannot speak highly enough of the course teacher, Nel, and her gentle, compassionate, professional and friendly approach to the teaching of the course.   We were a small group and this allowed us to develop a greater understanding of each other, in safe and relaxed surroundings.  I would strongly recommend attending the MBSR course under Nel’s leadership, to anyone who is interested in living a calmer, more joyous and ultimately less stressful life on a day-to-day basis.  This was just the start of my mindfulness journey!
