In these uncertain times, joining with others to learn new skills to support our health and wellbeing could be more relevant than ever.
We are responding to coronavirus guidelines by moving our regular courses and sessions 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 individual 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.
Advance booking is essential.
Our Public Classes for the summer term have been postponed until further notice.
Joining an online course
Our courses are conducted via a webinar on the 'Zoom' app. 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.
Free Online Connect Sessions
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 sessions will introduce you to mindfulness in practice and theory. The session lasts about one hour and a quarter 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 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.
