Introduction to Classes & Courses


Coronavirus: most of our regular courses and sessions continue to be online.


As well as allowing participants to complete a mindfulness or compassion course/session without having to leave home, this also allows us to significantly reduce our charges, as we do not have to cover room hire. 


"Why come on a course? There are loads of mindfulness resources online.." Participating in a course is interactive - you will get personal guidance from an experienced teacher and invaluable support from others in the group. Current course participants are finding that learning and practicing the skills of mindfulness in a structured course is a real help amidst the particular stresses in the challenging circumstances we find ourselves in.

Joining an online course

Our courses are conducted via 'Zoom'. This is easy to use on a desktop, laptop or smart phone. Full details will be provided on booking and support will be given in setting up where needed.

In these ever-changing times, joining with others to learn new skills to support our health and wellbeing could be more relevant than ever. 

Free Mindfulness


In these troublesome times it can help to learn ways to calm the anxious mind, to see through difficulties more clearly, and to relate to those around us with kindness and in friendship.


These drop-ins will introduce you to mindfulness in practice and theory. The drop-ins lasts about an hour and there will be time for questions and individual queries afterward. You will be guided in a simple mindfulness practice that you may continue to use if you wish and those who are interested can find out more about our online mindfulness courses. 

Mindfulness Courses

Mindfulness has been proven to help alleviate stress, anxiety and low mood; to help us cope with difficulties such as ill-health; and to increase wellbeing. 


Attending a structured course with an experienced teacher supports us to reap these benefits for ourselves as we share learning with others and develop our own mindfulness practice in everyday life.

Recent research is showing how wisdom, far from being vague and mystical, can be used in practical ways towards making good decisions in our daily lives.

The benefits can be found in improving our capacity to take a wider perspective, understanding our views and emotional responses to events and how this can help us as we navigate everyday challenges. Training in wisdom helps us to self-reflect more effectively on any situation; be more decisive; and more accepting of change and uncertainty.
