The Breathworks 'Mindfulness for Stress' Eight-Week Mindfulness Course
Mindfulness can give you a different way of viewing the world. By practising, you'll discover fairly quickly that you don’t have to be ruled by all of the unhelpful thoughts and feelings your mind can throw up in reaction to stressful experiences. You can distance yourself from them, while deepening your relationship with yourself. You can change the lens that you use to look at the world.
Mindfulness won't remove all of the stressors from your life but it will change your relationship to them by altering your perspective. That can have a huge impact on your quality of life.
The Mindfulness for Stress course isn't just about stress! It's about equipping you with the tools and skills you need to be able to make mindfulness work for you in any and every part of your life.
* Based on end of course evaluations from over 80 participants at our Breathworks Mindfulness for Stress courses.
The course takes place over four sessions, spanning eight weeks, leaving a two week space between sessions to allow you to practice and absorb the course materials at home. It includes comprehensive resources including a course handbook and a set of guided mindfulness meditations recorded by Breathworks specifically for this course. There is also one to one email support and guidance from the course teacher throughout the course in-between sessions.
Each session is a full afternoon, with the final session taking place over a full day.
At the end of the course, you'll have a toolbox of meditations, daily practices and ideas for living that will support you on your on-going journey to a happy, healthy relationship with life and all of its ups and downs. You will have had plenty of time to practice everything and to ask all the questions you need to make sure that it's all sunk in.
The course is accessible and easy to follow and everything you need is provided, right down to the tea and coffee! Our city centre venue is warm, comfortable and within easy walking distance of transport links and affordable multi-storey car parking.

Dave Spencer and Andrea Cygler are both exceptional teachers. They have exceptional skill at making mindfulness become real, and supporting you in encompassing it into daily activity/life to make a difference. I got such a lot from the programme, as well as some well needed "me-time".
In my whirlwind life this practice has enabled me to be calm, and much more focused, in both my work and at home. Mindfulness Liverpool provides a safe place to learn and practice mindfulness, you will leave feeling relaxed and with a positive mind-set. I will certainly be sharing these concepts in my working life to help others, as well as continuing to use it myself to stay in the moment and enjoy the here and now.

I attended Dave Spencer's Mindfulness for Stress course as part of my own personal development, and also my CPD (Continuing Professional Development). Being a teacher of Mindfulness myself, I wanted to develop my own knowledge deeper, and see how others delivered the concept. I have to say that I was amazed at the amount of information and inner wisdom that I gained from this course.
Both Dave and Andrea were brilliant in their approach. Mindfulness can be a challenging concept to deliver, yet they did so very well and made it enjoyable, informative and very easy to take on board. I would recommend anyone, for professional or personal gain, to attend this course.
With an understanding of psychological interventions, and some experience of practicing mindfulness, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I gained from both the theoretical knowledge and practical elements of this course. The course content, supplementary readings, group discussions and professional delivery from David and Andrea allowed participants to engage and achieve everything they expected from the course and more!

I found this course deeply fulfilling, particularly in the way it combined the theory of mindfulness with real practice. I would go as far as to say it has certainly provided me with some vital tools for life, which I am now using on a daily basis.
The world we now live in is far more complex, and in many ways more difficult, than it has ever been. Proper coping mechanisms to deal with the stress which is around us, especially in the work place, are so much more essential. For me, practicing Mindfulness will go a long way to making sense of it all, and dealing with that stress. This course, into which Dave and Andrea put so much personally, has enabled me to do this.
Dave and Andrea provided excellent guidance in exploring the effects of stress, and applying Mindfulness as a resilience technique. The course was well planned with weekly reading and practice to do at home, and the learning atmosphere in the sessions was open, welcoming, and responsive to participants needs. It was fun and reassuring learning with the others on the course, and, as it was a relatively small group, felt friendly.
There was a good variety of practical exercises and discussion, making the content easy and enjoyable to follow. Andrea and Dave are brilliant and patient teachers and I felt able to ask for extra support if needed. The course catered well for learning at home, with access to audio-recorded exercises, and weekly prompts to help maintain motivation. Doing this course has helped me to effectively be able to manage the stresses of 21st century-living and was a truly enjoyable, enriching experience. I would look forward to other similar courses from Dave and Andrea and I very much recommend doing the Mindfulness for Stress course with them in Liverpool.
I signed up for the Mindfulness for Stress course with the aim of learning new techniques to incorporate into my work, but I gained so much more than that! Dave and Andrea provided an opportunity for both reflection, and new learning, within a supportive environment, along with excellent course materials to help deepen our practice.
The sessions were invaluable, the teachers were inspirational and I really enjoyed my time with the group. Since the course ended, I have continued to practise mindfulness and fully intend to develop my skills further.
I can honestly say that my life has changed since taking part in the Breathworks course. Rather than my life operating on my stress levels and making rash decisions, I feel like I am now able to slow down, think, and make much more informed choices. The catalysts for stress are still in my everyday life, but I am now able to react and deal with them more calmly and positively. Rather than worrying my life away, I now have a bank of tools that I can use to help me put my problems in perspective, and deal with them more efficiently.
Mindfulness doesn't take your problems and stresses away, but it does give you the skills to deal with them in a much more positive way. Dave and Andrea are lovely people who accept everybody and allow you to be and accept your true self.
