Mindfulness for emotional resilience
Dip into mindfulness
Wanting to find out whether mindfulness is for you? Or feeling stressed, anxious and wanting to understand more about why you feel the way you do? Engaging with a Resilio mindfulness course can deliver on both fronts, helping you develop deeper awareness into how your thoughts effect emotions that shape your life experience.
The insights gained through following a Resilio 1 course provides a fun way to dip into mindfulness to see if it’s for you. Even at Resilio 1 you can develop new perspectives on aspects of your life, providing greater opportunity for choice in how you engage with your thoughts, people and situations.
What is Resilio?
As an accredited mindfulness teacher I developed Resilio 1, 2 and 3 through an appreciation of the gap that exists between people wanting to engage with mindfulness to benefit their wellbeing and the challenges, particularly in the early stages, of trying to establish ongoing, regular practice.
Resilio 1 starts with a series of short, engaging daily activities that are ‘mindful’, encouraging self-discovery and formation of a practice habit in a fun and engaging way
The activities you’ll engage with will help you become more aware of auto-pilot reactions and also more sensitive to your own needs. The objectives of Resilio 1, 2 and 3 are about building emotional resilience that can reduce stress levels.
It really helped me establish a routine to make time for myself which I’d not managed before using other training methods
Resilio nurtures self-compassion
The world is awash with mindfulness training courses. However, all too often the mindfulness practices required by the training programme get neglected, because of lack of time/motivation by those taking part.
I know that making regular time for yourself, to practice mindfulness or otherwise, can be very challenging, so the Resilio 1course has been designed to help you address this very important aspect. Resilio 1 helps you establish a “Me-Time” habit, necessary for nurturing kindness and compassion towards yourself, a pre-requisite for building emotional resilience.
Resilio 1 feedback
“Easy to do and made me think about things in a different way”
“Helped me make time for myself, which I find really difficult usually”
“Provided a way for me to start each day on a positive note”
Developing sensitivity to your own needs is very much at the core of the courses, together with support from myself, as you walk the path of growing self-awareness. My role is to guide you along a learning and practice path that is suitable for you, as an individual, paced and delivered appropriately to maximise benefits.
Beyond Resilio 1
Both Resilio 2 and 3 provide learning pathways and support suited to each individual. Course content is rooted in the British Psychological Society approved ‘Mindfulness Now’ programme that I am accredited as a teacher to deliver.
Mental, emotional and physical wellbeing benefits can be achieved through engagement with Resilio, as with any other mindfulness training programme. One of the biggest challenges is developing a regular practice habit that your mind recognises as beneficial to your wellbeing, like brushing your teeth.The uniqueness of Resilio is that you have a chance to ease yourself into mindfulness slowly. Part 1 is about experiencing mindfulness practice as fun. If you enjoy something you are more likely to commit to doing more of whatever it is, which is where Resilio 2 starts and Resilio 3 continues.
You can choose to engage with Resilio 1, 2 and 3, at your own pace, but you can stop after part 1 and still be in receipt of valuable wellbeing benefits.
Many mindfulness training courses are of a fixed duration, for example, the 8-week MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) or MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) courses. Engaging with Resilio is different.
Resilio 1 runs over 2 weeks and can help you explore whether you wish to engage with further mindfulness training. Resilio 2, 3 and beyond involve 4-week blocks that require engagement with more formal meditations and activities, delivered according to assessed need for each individual taking part.
“Made me feel better about myself”
“I found it enjoyable and manageable and it helped me interrrupt negative thought cycles”
“Gets you into a routine of taking time for yourself and your own mental health”
“I found the course was quite a life-changer in ways I hadn’t anticipated”
“I feel more positive about myself and my ability to stop being overwhelmed by negative thoughts and anxieties”
“Having gained insight into my way of thinking I feel more confident about how I respond to people and situations”
Engage with the Resilio 1 mindful activities, whenever you want. It’s a great way to find out whether mindfulness is ‘right’ for you at this time in your life by finding out if you can make time at this time in your life.
FAQ and information about Resilio
More about the benefits of following a Resilio course
The skills you’ll learn at all levels of the Resilio courses will deliver deeper personal insight and build greater emotional resilience to help combat personal experiences of stress and anxiety, trouble sleeping, ruminative thoughts or maybe low mood.
Through following the 1, 2 and 3 progression levels of Resilio courses, significant mental, emotional and physical benefits can be noticed over time. However, you don’t have to complete all 3 parts and can choose to pause or stop after completing 1, or 2 if you feel that’s right for you, at that moment in time.
What courses are available beyond Level 1?
Resilio, Parts 2 and 3, are focussed on building mindfulness based skills and practices that are geared to provide best fit with your individual needs. For example, not everyone finds mindfulness practices easy, particularly those involving working with the breath, but there are other ways to engage with learning to engage with mindfulness meditations.
How are the Resilio courses delivered
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation I have developed Resilio, parts 1, 2 and 3 to be suitable for online delivery, with additional ongong support via phone, email, FaceTime or Skype.
Part 1 Resilio is designed to run over a two week period
Part 2 Resilio is designed to run over a 4 week period
Part 3 Resilio is designed to run over a 4 – 6 week period, depending on client need
Is the course held in a group situation?
Resilio courses are delivered mostly on a one-to-one basis, but with opportunity for group-based meditation practices, online during the Covid-19 situation.
The Resilio course provides a more personalised approach to mindfulness training than either online Apps can deliver, or the 8 week courses of MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) and MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) that deliver a fixed, rigid curriculum week by week.
I’ll just make it clear, I think the MBSR and MBCT courses are excellent for some people but not all people, for a variety of reasons I’m happy to discuss further with you.
Can I do the coursework at any time of the day?
With Resilio 1, absolutely.
With Resilio 2 and 3, yes for some of the activities but there needs to be some discussion on mutually convenient times when we can link-up
Do I need to have a special place to practice?
You can practice anywhere that’s convenient, or where you can find some ‘space’.
Do I need to buy any kit?
No you don’t. All materials you need to engage with the Resilio training will be provided. You don’t need to wear any special clothing, or sit on a special cushion, or burn incense. Of course you can choose to make all the above part of your daily practice routine, but that’s up to you.
How would I pay for the course?
Payment for training is made prior to start date by BACS payment, but PayPal is ok too.
"Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience."
"The stiller you are the calmer life is."
"The goal of meditation isn't to control your thoughts, it's to stop letting them control you."
