Wisdom
 

Mindfulness-based Wise Awareness (MBWA)
Open to people who have completed an 8-week mindfulness course or have an established mindfulness meditation practice.

Annie and Carolyn have drawn on their many years of mindfulness practice and teaching, as well as Carolyn's background in science, in developing this exciting new course.   

Training in wisdom improves our capacity for a broader perspective, helping us to navigate life's challenges.

The benefits can be found in better understanding our views and emotional responses to events. We are able to self-reflect and make decisions with clarity, and be more fully equipped to manage change and uncertainty.

Contact us if you have any further queries.
