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.

    There is now overwhelming scientific evidence that practising gratitude has positive impacts on health and happiness, and of all the things that contribute to a life well lived, a habit of being grateful might be the simplest path. The long-term positive benefits of gratitude include improvements in mental health, sleep, relationships, social connection, wellness and resilience.

    A few thoughts on authentic leadership

    December 27th , 2016

    Recently we partnered with Humanity in Business to co-host a conference on Authentic Leadership where we heard from a cross section of people ranging from those of us who teach mindfulness in organisations and their clients, academics who research and teach leadership, and a number of former CEO’s who have transformed failing businesses into thriving ones.

    Being Stirred

    Have you ever seen or experienced something so beautiful that you were at loss for words ? In that very moment we have a deep knowing that there is nothing to add or subtract, no improvement to fix it.

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.

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.

The course has made me feel a lot calmer in a busy life.

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.

It is hard to verbalise the surprisingly profound impact this experience

Learning that neutral experiences are OK. Not all about chasing the positive or wallowing in the negative. People around me have started commenting on the fact that I'm a lot calmer and have more “space” about me - in my interactions with them. Better aware of the impact of thoughts – even passing ones on my mood. Being able to catch thoughts or negative thinking.
