How We Can Find Peace in This Crazy World
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression - in other words, it works! And it’s not just for depression; it also works for people who are not depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of this frantic world. It promotes the kind of happiness and peace that gets into our bones. It seeps into everything we do and helps us meet the worst that life throws at us. Mindfulness reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion. We’re going to be using the book Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World, by Mark Williams and Danny Pennman. This will be a six-week program. The class will be partly lecture, but you can look forward to lively discussions. And, if you like, you can volunteer to give a presentation on a portion of the book. Mike Murray is a Clinical Psychologist. He has taught mindfulness classes for OLLI for over ten years.
