Mindfulness is a medically sound practice for learning, growing and healing. It’s simply paying attention, in the present moment and non judgmentally. That includes awareness of your inner and outer worlds; thoughts, feelings, sensations, actions and your surroundings.
Mindfulness brings equanimity and balance to your life. You can take better care of yourself by exploring and understanding the interplay of mind and body and mobilising your own inner resources for coping, growing and healing. It’s simple in essence and with practice it can be easy.
Mindfulness Apps simply aren’t enough! Come and train with a group. You’ll find it’s a supportive way to practise. The group experience will give you encouragement and keep you accountable so you don’t skimp on yourself. You’ll also learn from others in the group.
This is a mindfulness basics program to give you a sneak peak at both the theory and the practice of mindfulness.
We meet on line live over 4 weeks. You’ll need to dedicate 1-hour of your time to meet from the comfort of your own home plus commit to a daily 15 minute practise. Each practice is provided in a short 5 minute version so you can use this several times throughout your busy day…then watch the change happen.
Each week we cover a different life theme and an accompanying awareness skill to help you build your internal resources and resilience. You’ll get a broad overview of contemplative awareness practices with a group of people who are all on the same journey. Enjoy!

In our fast-paced world, you may experience stress, tension, anxiety, emotional turmoil, physical pain, overwhelm or bouts of sleeplessness. Left untreated, stress will eat away at your happiness and health.
How do you reduce the impact of stress in your life?
In this program, you’ll get 8 weeks of tuition and practice on mindfulness meditation. Plus We’ll have a face to face full day urban retreat – a day of mindfulness.
You’ll get new skills for dealing with issues that arise in life, by developing new capacities to work with whatever arises.
There’s more than two decades of published research on MBSR and people who complete the curriculum report: greater energy and enthusiasm, ability to relax, improved self esteem and an ability to cope more effectively with stressful situations.
MBSR has been shown to change the brains of participants by increasing areas that are aligned with stress reduction and increasing the parts that are aligned with coping skills.
Join in, you’ll get focus and greater joy and enthusiasm.
Mindfulness masterclasses and challenges are offered at various times throughout the year.
