This eight week programme has been developed alongside the Minded Institute, specifically to assist in the process of rehabilitation from substance misuse and addiction.
it offers participants the opportunity to develop invaluable skills for remaining in sobriety such as self discipline, positive and responsible thought and action, self reflection and most importantly psychological regulation and tolerance of sensation that can be used to downgrade cravings and as an aid to restore physiological and mental balance following substance abuse.
Through mindful meditation techniques, physical poses and breath exercises, deep relaxation and mindful enquiry our programme works to re-establish a healthy body-mind connection and to begin the therapeutic work to alleviate suffering through a process of acceptance.
