Mindfulness Practice Groups - online LIVE

Connect and grow your practice

Something quite precious can be discovered in the MBSR program - which you may want to tend and grow through having the support of a teacher and a group of fellow-travellers to practice with each week.

Now you can attend a Zoom group, with the MBSR teacher of your choice, from the comfort of your own home or office or car!  In this six week program, we will offer a theme each week, and practice together, followed by some time for exploring our practice and lives - just as we do in MBSR.

This practice group is an alive, personalised, responsive, real-time engagement between the teacher, the participants and the practice.  The cost of the six week program is $129 and the venue is your place.


PRE-REQUISITE: Please note that this online practice group is suitable for people who have some experience of mindfulness meditation already - for example - for those who have completed the MBSR course or equivalent. It is not an introduction to mindfulness.

What will you be learning in the course?

Do I need to have completed an eight-week course to attend the online practice group?

Yes.  We have found this online forum doesn't work so well with people who haven't immersed themselves in a practice for a short period of time and also explored the rationale for various practices more fully through a step-by-step program.

Relevant prior immersion would be any eight-week program like MBSR, MBCT or MICBT. Other forms of intro training - like an app, ACT or DBT usually doesn't provide the basics in the way an eight-week practice-based course does.



I need to miss a couple of sessions. Is this OK?

That is fine. It is not a drop-in group.  The places in the program are limited, so your place will be held for you, even though you may miss some sessions.  

What equipment will I need?

We like to use Zoom because this enables the teacher and all participants to see each other and speak simultaneously, just like in a regular class. 

Each person on a group Zoom video call will need:
  • Zoom app on phone or computer - Download it here
  • A high-speed broadband connection
  • A webcam
  • A microphone and speakers (built-in or separate headset with microphone)
  • If using Windows, a DirectX 9.0c compatible video card

What People Are Saying

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.

Tracey, 2017

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

Anna, 2016

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

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.

Lisa 2016

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.
