Introduction to Mindfulness
If you want to know a little more about mindfulness, but you are not read to commit to a daily practice, this introductory course could be for you.
Mindfulness for Life
This is an introductory course that is run at different locations. It is an introductory course covering a range of topics in mindfulness. The intention is to help people live more mindfully, and reduce the impact of stress on their lives. Check our calendar.
Mindfulness in the Workplace
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
This is a more in-depth course. Participants engage in regular mindfulness practices, up to 45 minutes a day. Many people find this a transformative experience. This is run on demand when there are enough people interested. Contact Lynne if you are interested.
Mindfulness Based Compassion
Self-compassion is something that we are often not very good at, and this causes many issues. Many if not most people are their own worst critic. Mindfulness Based Compassion courses help you develop a kinder attitude to yourself and others, and this can alleviate a lot of stress. Contact Ken if you are interested.
Mindful Movement with Five Elements Yoga
Movement is an important way of developing mindfulness. Five Elements Yoga is a gentle movement practice, similar to Qi Gong. It can be done standing or sitting in a chair.
