This is a collection of Dr Nick's guided meditations from the various mindfulness courses available on our web site.
These guided exercises follow the classic format used in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy courses which Dr Nick teaches to groups and individuals in Auckland New Zealand.
- Dr Nick Penney holds a PhD in Musculoskeletal Medicine from The Australian Centre of National Research on Disability and Rehabilitation Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Queensland.
- His research focussed on the Biopsychosocial model of pain and the obstacles to recovery from low back pain.
- This understanding that the 'whats going on' in our lives is highly predictive of our ability to recover from pain led to training in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy with Professor Mark Williams to compliment his own mindfulness practice.
- Dr Nick is also vocationally registered in Pain Management in New Zealand and a member of The International Society for the study of Pain (IASP).
