Mindfulness is developed by purposefully paying attention in an open-hearted way, to what is going on in your body, your mind and in the world around you.

Wanting just a 'taste' of mindfulness or to really transform some things in your life?  Enrol here to see what a comprehensive, evidence-based training can offer you.

Our courses offer depth, safety, continuity and connection with a dedicated, experienced teacher to help you engage with the heart of the matter – so that you can find more resilience, effectiveness and authority in your life. 

While a short course, app or workshop may offer a taste of mindfulness, it is unlikely to provide you with the experience, space and time to develop your own practice which is what leads to the outcomes you probably want and are truly possible from this inspiring method.

  • Longing and mindfulness as a panacea or path?

    Longing and mindfulness as a panacea or path?

    I love this rendering of the power of longing. Saint-Exupery speaks of longing as something noble and inspiring that can take us forward towards our deepest values and draw us out into caring for the world.

    I don’t know who wrote the quote, where I read it or if I dreamt it but this is the quote that won’t leave me alone this year. It keeps clarifying my approach as a psychologist helping people with their suffering. It has helped me contemplate my own journey with sadness and melancholia. It is an onion with many layers and has illuminated what I believe is at the core of recovery, growth and change – the willingness to accept and embrace our inner experience.

    The benefits of mindfulness training for people with ADHD

    April 21st , 2017

    Ever wondered if there’s a training that helps you focus better? Interested in better managing stress and feeling more emotionally balanced?

I gained a lot from this course! I would definitely recommend it to friends and already have. I hadn’t been feeling ‘myself’ at the start of the course, and hadn’t been for almost a year. I had long term RSI which has gotten better in the 8 weeks – not 100% yet, but better than 6-8 months of physio beforehand! I feel myself again, and friends and work colleagues have noticed I seem happier, less stressed and I feel able to cope with stresses easier.

Inner strength, confidence through knowing myself better, a more positive view of my future knowing that all I need is to turn into my pain and remember it will pass

Inner strength, confidence through knowing myself better

It has definitely changed relationships in my life. Also it has helped me deal with confrontation a lot better. It has helped me become a lot more task focussed and given me the skill to see where my mind often wanders and why it goes to certain places. Loved the course and would recommend it to everyone.

Lacee, 2015

Loved the course and would recommend it to everyone.

The course has made me feel a lot calmer in a busy life. It has reminded me to stop and smell the roses. It has taught me that awareness – is just that – not complicated! That meditation is not about stopping all thoughts but acknowledging them and letting them pass and then focussing back on the here and now.

It is hard to verbalise the surprisingly profound impact this experience (so much more than a course) has had on me. It has been so complete—spiritually, emotionally, professionally and intellectually.
