Skip to 0 minutes and 4 secondsCRAIG HASSED: Well, it's been wonderful to be with you here over these last few weeks, for us to all learn together. Although we've been facilitating the course, we're always actively learning, ourselves. And we've been very much enriched by the things that have been shared over these weeks. We've gotten a lot out of it. Thank you to all those people behind the scenes that have helped so much. It couldn't happen without them. So thank you. This is not the end of Mindfulness, for example. This is hopefully a platform for you to launch Mindfulness for the rest of your life.
Watch Craig and Richard provide their final comments on the course.
Don’t forget, mindfulness is a lifelong practice. So while you might have established a meditation practice, built on what you already know or learned to apply some of the principles in your day to day life, it’s about the rest of your life that’s important.
Download and play the meditations
Download and play the meditations that are available throughout this course. It helps to have someone guiding the practice, reminding you to bring our attention back to the breath, or to cultivate attitudes like acceptance and non-judgment. Once we start to become familiar with meditation, you might like to experiment meditating without the recordings or try setting an alarm on your phone so that you can start to become independent of guided meditations. Doing this will help you to be able to meditate any time, any where.
Find a community of other meditators
You may also want to consider finding a community of other meditators, mindfulness courses or mindfulness drop in classes in your area. Having a community of people who are learning and experiencing the same challenges and benefits of mindfulness, and learning from one another can be of great benefit.
