Reflective account on 8 week MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course) undertaken by a school teacher

I wrote a reflective account of my experiences doing the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course in Cardiff… 

Why take a mindfulness course ?

I work as a school supply teacher and wanted to develop a
practice as a means of reducing my stress levels. My brain is
neuroplastic. In plain English, that means my brain is
malleable and can be rewired. I want to rewire it using
mindfulness as a means to make it less prone to stress, to
make it more resilient.

I wanted to learn mindfulness practice with an experienced
practitioner having read much on the subject and
experimented with mindfulness practice over the years. From
the course I hoped to establish a mindfulness practice
embedded in my personal and professional life.
