“Mindfulness teaches us that the present moment is the greatest energy of all”


Mindfulness is a form of meditation that cultivates moment to moment awareness and is based on ancient contemplative traditions. In mindfulness, awareness means paying attention without judging the present moment. Mindfulness is the ability to accept present reality. It promotes clarity, patience and insight. Through practising mindfulness we notice that our lives are made up of a sequence of moments, each offering a wealth and depth of possibilities to grow and change. We learn to trust ourselves and to discover our resourcefulness. We learn to recognise our own patterns of behaviour and change unhealthy and stressful habits by choosing to respond to situations rather than reacting to them.

The courses I offer include the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and 6-day Mindfulness programmes, Friday morning yoga and meditation courses, Silent Day Retreats, and one-to-one work which can take the form of distance learning or consultations. These are all based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's MBSR programmes developed at the University of Massachussetts Medical School over thirty years ago. We are also developing Mindfulness programmes based on research that highlights the key components of breathing and movement.
