Learning and practicing the skills of mindfulness and compassion with experienced, well-trained teachers in a structured, interactive session or course is proving to be an invaluable support for our participants amidst the continuing stress-factors of these uncertain times.
Please note that we have made some adaptations to our courses to ensure that they meet the particular needs of our participants at this time.
Jan/Feb 2021 update: We are continuing to offer all of our courses and sessions online, following Covid-19 safety guidelines. We will resume small, socially distanced in-person sessions when it is safe to do so.
What is Mindfulness?
Is there an activity in your life that you love and find absorbing?
Do you ever notice moments of contentment and wellbeing?
These experiences give us an idea of the 'flavour' of mindfulness; the capacity to be calm, open and aware in the present moment. Mindfulness is non-judgemental and always curious about experience, fostering a life lived consciously.
Our Online Mindfulness Drop-ins are completely free. There is no expectation for you to donate at all; we are just happy to see you there!
And, if you would like to donate to support this work we will be very grateful. A one-off occasional donation is preferable to small donations after a class. Any amount would help to keep the classes going. Please use the donate button below.

At Love Mindfulness we offer a range of courses, classes and workshops
Secular mindfulness, stemming originally from Buddhist meditation practices, was first used by Jon Kabat-Zinn in his stress reduction clinic at Massachusetts University. It is an evidence-based technique shown to be effective in improving wellbeing and reducing stress and depression, now used in a variety of settings.
We are qualified to teach in the following areas:
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
The original programme developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn to help people manage the stress of chronic pain and extreme health conditions.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
This was developed from MBSR in the UK as a means of preventing relapses into depression but is now adapted for a wide range of clinical and non-clinical situations. It is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (N.I.C.E).
Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living (MBCL)
An evidence-based 8-week course developed by Dr Eric Van Brink and Frits Koster as a continuation course for people who have completed an 8-week mindfulness course such as MBSR or MBCT.
Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP)
We are qualified and experienced independent teachers, trained to teach courses developed for Key Stages 2-5. These present a carefully worked out, engaging programme that give children the skills and concepts to negotiate their world with greater focus and positivity. We have also developed our own course for Key Stage 1 and focused single sessions for staff, children and young people.
