Welcome to the Forum for Contemplative Studies, a resource site for the meeting of psychotherapy, mindfulness and Buddhism. It contains information on mindfulness meditation, contemplative psychotherapy, a directory of psychotherapists, courses, articles and literature.
Welcome to the Bath and Bristol Eight Week Mindfulness Course. A stress reduction program originally designed by Jon Kabat Zinn.
Using mindfulness meditation, the eight evenings and one full Saturday, can help us be with physical and emotional stress, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. It is particularly recommended by NICE for recurrent bouts of chronic depression. This can be achieved, not by rejecting our emotional experience, but by learning to be present with it in a consciously spacious and kindly way – that is mindfully.
