Next 10-week Heartfulness Course commencing 2nd May 2018 in London
The next Heartfulness Course is commencing on Wednesday 2nd May 2018 at the Psychosynthesis Centre, London Bridge, SE1.
The Heartfulness Project is a new course looking into how an integrative mind-body approach can benefit those individuals who suffer from heart conditions or who are at risk of developing heart disease through either hereditary or life events and stressors. Developed by Dr Maya Campbell, research scientist and mindfulness teacher and clinical psychologist Dr Tamara Russell, the course draws on the lived experience of Maya Campbell who had a heart attack leading to heart failure. Subsequently she gave evidence at the All Party Parliamentary Select Committee on Heart Failure and argued for the need for greater psychological support for heart patients. Dr Tamara Russell, Director of the Mindfulness Centre of Excellence, brought her expertise in creative co-design of mindfulness programs to develop an innovative program which started from the experience of the participants.
Results of the pilot study held last year showed across the board improvements emotional and physical wellbeing. The qualitative data showed good acceptability of the course by the participants, with themes of developing greater self-awareness, increased ability to manage distressing emotions, increased self-care with a healthier more active lifestyle. Changes in internal narrative were noted, with all participants experiencing a more healthy and supportive inner voice.
One participant's feedback after a 2 month followup:
"I'm doing really well applying the learning from the course. It's completley transformed my life...I've been mindful of the need to practice the exercises and remember self-care - and I have emerged into the new year feeling really good (resilient in the face of external challenges and my own wobbles)."
