Preparations for Mindfulness Training

In order to follow this course you will need a few supplies and a few logistical considerations. These are very easy to come by and it is not essential that everything be followed by perscription. You should adapt whatever is available to you and what works best for you in creating a comfortable environment for the course.

We recommend that you follow the course in the morning if this is possible.



Perhaps the most vital thing you will be using throughout the course is a notebook to record various thoughts, feelings and observations. This may be either a paper notebook or an electronic notepad on your compututer or handheld device.

Portable audio device (laptop or mobile telephone):

or some exercises, it is recommended that you lie down while listening to an audio lesson. For this any set-up that works will do. Perhaps you will have a computer and speakers available in the room where you might do this, or perhaps you can use a laptop in that room. You can also use any mobile telephone with internet access and a headset. If none of these things is available to you, then perform the exercise at a time when you can sit quietly at your computer.

Lottery ticket:

For one of the last exercises (after around 3 weeks), you will be asked to buy a lottery ticket and do some things with it. If you do not wish to buy a lottery ticket at that time, it is okay, you can just do the exercise as a thought experiment.


As mentioned above, some exercises are best done lying down in a quite place. If you can organize this in a way that you can use audio either from a computer or a portable device, this is recommended. If not, just try to find a way to have some quiet time comfortably near your computer.
