I attended an introduction to mindfulness 6 week course at the recovery college in merton - I found it very helpful - my main complaint is it could have been longer - plus points include that it provided a hint of hope - providing me with some useful tools to start working towards lessening the likelihood of recurrence of depression - or at least the tools to help cope with whatever lies ahead - just wanted to say the two people instructing my group were very good at listening to everyone and making sure everyone felt listened to and were not misunderstanding the mindfulness introduction - which cannot be easy, as it was a very varied group of people, with varying needs I would say - my first two sessions I was unsure about, as I felt slightly uncomfortable, but soon discovered that what I was being introduced to was both relatively simple and rather complicated! the tone of the sessions was caring and upbeat, with an awareness that the patients would have ups and downs. many thanks to the team involved.
