The term MINDFULNESS refers to a form of meditation that involves voluntarily focusing oneself in the present moment , and paying full attention to what is happening in that moment without judging it.
Mindfulness is a westernised adaptation of VIPASSANA meditation, which originated in India and seeks to “become aware of the present moment or reality”. It was adapted by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the United States in the 1970s and since then it has extended to numerous other countries, with more followers each day. It provides benefits for a wide range of aspects of Western life within schools, hospitals, work environments as well as personal development or improvement.
It has been proven that practicing Mindfulness for 30 minutes each day provides numerous benefits: reduces stress and anxiety levels, improves performance in studies, and helps to develop self-esteem and self-confidence. Although those aspects are very beneficial, they are not the most important aspects of Mindfulness.
Above any other meditation or personal improvement technique, Mindfulness offers the possibility for you to be fully aware of your life. We are usually so focused on our own thoughts that we barely pay attention to our surroundings. We spend days, months and even years on autopilot and we miss a large percentage of our life without ever realising it.
Mindfulness has much to offer if you are willing to practice regularly and are up to the challenge of living your life to the fullest.
2 months (200 hours) from the 26th July 2018 – 26th September 2018.
100% online through our e-learning platform which you can access 24/7. There is no fixed learning rhythm and there are no set dates for the exams so you are free to work on the course and take the exams at your own pace. The only requirement is that you finish the course and pass the exams by the 26th of September.
Everything you will need to complete the course is available on the online platform. The course has 3 modules and the material is available in PDF format to download, study and print if you wish. Our material is dynamic and varied and includes audiovisual multimedia resources, links to complementary information, interesting facts, practical examples and research tools. You will have access to an online forum with a tutoring team at your disposal for any queries.
There is an exam at the end of each module (between 10 and 20 questions each) and you are given three attempts to pass. There is also a final exam (between 30 and 40 questions) which covers topics from the entire course and must be passed on the first attempt. All exam questions are multiple choice, true/false or matching.
Once you have successfully passed all the exams, your certificate will be sent automatically to the email address you used for registration within 10 working days of the official end date of the course.
