What is a SIT Course in Mindfulness?

SIT stands for Six-week Introductory Training (SIT) in Mindfulness and the course is designed for beginners to mindfulness or those who would like a refresher in its basic principles and techniques. The facilitators of the SIT Course will teach you to develop a focused and embodied attention, self awareness, emotional intelligence, and greater sense of ease and well being. You will learn a variety of mindfulness meditations and practical ways to integrate mindfulness into daily activities at work, home and in relationships.

The course includes the following:

  • Training in meditation, developing awareness of breath, body, feelings and thoughts.
  • Managing stress and learning how to shift from reaction to response.
  • Recognizing and letting go of unhelpful habitual thoughts and mind states.
  • Exploring, understanding and working with a range of emotional experience.
