The Community Mindfulness Project

Published on Wednesday, January 20, 2021

                                              For our farmers and rural community in the Hurunui

The Community Mindfulness Project presents two events especially for Hurunui residents; both on scientific and practical ways to build resilience.

                               “You can’t stop the waves….but you can learn to surf!” Jon Kabat Zinn

Life and farming are always going to be unpredictable and uncertain, however hard we try to control the variables. What we can do something about is how we approach difficulties and ourselves, how quickly we bounce back.  These events cover a range of proven practices that provide a buffer and support us when we experience inevitable stress and hard times.

The Community Mindfulness Project: A collaboration between Mindfulness North Canterbury,  Community Wellbeing North Canterbury Trust and Logan Smythe and Associates to bring free science-based resilience and wellbeing courses, workshops and podcasts to North Canterbury, made possible by AIA Vitality.

                                                     MINDFUL SELF COMPASSION WORKSHOP

Science based stress reduction by being on your own side.

We are often led to believe that treating ourselves mean is the best way to motivate ourselves and prevent mistakes, but what if that wasn’t true? What if how we treat ourselves is the missing link in how stressed we are? Life is always going to be stressful, but how we approach ourselves and our “humanness” can make a big difference as to how stressful that is.

This 4hr workshop provides both the theory, science, and research findings alongside practical exercises to take with you. (it is not therapy)

The workshop will cover the following:

  • The science stuff: The proven benefits and physiology of self-compassion
  • Dispelling common myths and barriers
  • How to be more on your own side to reduce stress in your life
  • Follow up resources
