Why would it help me to train in mindfulness now?
We live in challenging times. Learning  skills to support our health and wellbeing is more important than ever. 

Research shows that mindfulness training can help to alleviate stress and low mood. Stress is a natural response to threat that is essential for our survival, but it becomes unhelpful when overly dominant.

Mindfulness practice can help to settle the threat response and improve one's mood, bringing about a more open-minded and open-hearted way of being.

What can I expect from a mindfulness course?

You will be guided by an experienced and qualified mindfulness teacher.

You will be taught mindfulness practices and theory to help you relate more creatively to stress-factors and difficulties, developing more positive ways of being.


Sessions are conducted in a friendly and open atmosphere to encourage sharing and relationship building.
