Reduce stress and anxiety.
Improve mood, sleep, health and resilience.
Increase creativity, confidence and enjoyment of life.
A Mindfulness course is a chance to take a pause, to reflect on what’s important to you and to take care of yourself. The course integrates traditional meditation techniques with elements of cognitive behavioural therapy, yoga, chi gung and recent research into brain physiology and the effects of stress on the body.
Participants learn a range of Mindfulness practices in a warm, supportive small group environment. Mindfulness is supported by a growing body of research into the numerous benefits of this approach which include improvements in stress levels, anxiety, low mood, sleep difficulties, self-esteem, personal relationships, immune function, pain management, creativity and general enjoyment of life.
As part of the course, you are encouraged to complete approximately 30 minutes of daily practice (using materials provided) between classes in order to gain maximum benefits. All participants are provided with a handbook and guided meditation practices.
Some comments from previous participants:
“I would never have managed to get started on Mindfulness without the course, and even more importantly, I now feel I will be able to continue practicing and weaving it into my life.”

“My self awareness and ability to deal with everyday life without feeling overwhelmed and anxious has improved enormously. Very illuminating course.”
