(8-Week Mindfulness for Health & Happiness Course)

“I would recommend this course to anyone who is finding that life seems like a chain of events that has to be dealt with and managed; anyone losing sight of direction or meaning in their lives, or simply anyone who wants to make some new friends with whom to consider experiences of life meaningfully and with a sense of humour!

Before the course I had recently experienced some big changes in my life, and was struggling to deal with things as they came. Instead I got tangled up scheduling a hectic work life which left little time for me to be at peace with my own thoughts. The future in its mundane details seemed to comprise all of my experience. This meant I was struggling to identify with both simple positive feelings as they arose and also crucial and complex feelings of grief.

After the 8 weeks I found that I could now look to a selection of different mindful approaches to practical and emotional obstacles which enabled me to cope with trying situations. I ended up appreciating the world around me and that I could 'work with it' as opposed to against it; planning became less consuming and the details that could trigger anxiety troubled me less. I think this was because the course offered a gestalt, neutralising perspective on life and encouraged us to revel in experience and see things simply as they are, instead of categorise and scrutinise.

I have certainly noticed that my self-awareness has increased such that I am much more likely to be able to recognise when my mind is behaving badly. This could be negative thought patterns or anxious planning, or anything else that is detrimental to my wellbeing. In doing so I am able to see the situation for what it is (usually unimportant) and relax, and cope more productively.

It’s surprised me how dramatically my attitude towards things was altered for the better if I maintained a steady practice regime. And therefore how quickly one ‘falls out of mindfulness’, if practice is neglected.

I found it valuable being able to employ mindfulness in short bursts to manage high stress situations, and talking about mindfulness in a down to earth way. I enjoyed the course and its accessibility, flexibility, and the opportunity to discuss.”

Excellent course and excellent facilitators who know their subject. They were down to earth and they care about each individual’s experience, as opposed to treating us as a whole

Group mindfulness courses are a great way of getting to grips with being more mindful, as you can learn a lot from each other’s experiences. As the weeks go by you all get to appreciate how the group is changing, and you get to enjoy each other’s insights and successes.

Sign up for our newsletter above and we will keep you informed about our next classes OR, contact us and leave a message about your interest and we’ll let you know when we are taking bookings.

Private mindfulness tuition

If, for whatever reason you’re not able to attend a class, we do offer a limited amount of private mindfulness courses too. You can learn the skills one to one from either John or Joy.

The downside of this is that you don’t get the group learning experience. The upside is that the sessions can be tailored entirely to your needs and the times can be booked to fit in with a busy life.

If you think this personal attention would suit you better than a class, then contact us about booking private mindfulness tuition. We can then have a chat to discover if this would be the best option for you.

We’re looking forward to meeting you soon and helping you discover the joys and fruits of mindfulness practice.
