Uvodnik u tečaj Mindfulnessa
Udruga Mindfulness Hrvatska nudi još jedan 8 tjedni tečaj mindfulness. Tečaj koji je kreiran pod mindfulness savezom iz Engleske (Mindfulness Association -MA) zove se Mindfulness Based Living Course koji naglašava prakticiranje i učenje mindfulnessa u svakodnevnom životu. Tečaj se uspješno provodio u Zagreba u 6 ciklusa od kada je prvi put predstavljen u svibnju 2017. godine. Cijeli tečaj se provodi na engleskom jeziku pod vodstvom profesora emeritusa Davida McMurtrya.
Zbog iznimno velikog interesa za tečaj uveli smo dva termina po kojima se isti provodi. Ponedjeljkom od 19:00 – 21:00 i subotom od 10:00 – 12:00.
Uvodnik tečaja se ne plaća i služi kako bi svaki potencijalni sudionik mogao odlučiti želi li nastaviti program. Tada se ukratko predstavljaju cjeline i praksa mindfulnessa. Potrebno je prijaviti se na mail u slučaju tečaja kao i samog uvodnika. Mail na koji se primaju prijave je firstname.lastname@example.org

Mindfulness Hrvatska: Introduction to Mindfulness Course
The udruga Mindfulness Hrvatska is pleased to offer an 8-week introductory course in mindfulness. The course, created by the UK-based Mindfulness Association (MA), is called the Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC). The course has run very successfully in Zagreb on six previous occasions since it was first introduced in March 2017.
Previous participants in the MBLC in Zagreb have said:
“Thank you for opening a new world to me”.“I really liked the weekly follow up after each session with plenty of links, articles and audio files”.“I remember mindfulness everyday and try to include it in my everyday life and activities”.“I was satisfied with everything. The teaching was clear so I could understand all of it.”“I have become more aware of my thoughts and habitual reactions”.“Tutor is great – inspirational and suggestive. There are many materials, especially audio materials. The manual describes the exercises simply and clearly.”“Being mindful means being more alive!”“To be honest, this course surpassed my expectations”.
This course is for people with no prior experience of Mindfulness and also for people who already practice Mindfulness. It is a comprehensive introduction to practicing mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness is a secular practice which involves no religious beliefs or affiliations. The MBLC is being taught by Dr David McMurtry, an experienced mindfulness teacher, Emeritus University professor and currently President of ‘Mindfulness Hrvatska’. David lives in Zagreb.
We plan to hold the course twice weekly, dependent upon there being enough participants. The course will run on Saturday mornings, 10:00-12:00 and on Monday evenings from 19:00-21:00. The course is taught in English and we meet in Gornji Grad.
There is a free Introductory Session, which is a ‘taster’ of the course, to allow to decide if you wish to continue with the MBLC or not. The 2 Introductory Sessions are on Monday 25 March 2019 19:00-21:00 and Saturday 30 March 2019, 10:00-12:00, both in Gornji Grad.
To register for an Introductory Session, please send an email to email@example.com stating whether you wish to participate on Monday 25.03 or Saturday 30.03. The available places are allocated to the first 20 people to register for each session.
