“Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when we non-judgmentally pay attention in the present moment. It cultivates access to core aspects of our own minds and bodies that our very sanity depends on,” ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
Do you find yourself running from task to task, distraction to distraction, with an endless to-do list and when you do finally stop does your mind keep going? Does your nervous system feel a little frazzled? Stressed? Overwhelmed? Challenged to get to sleep at night?
Come join us for our 6 week Introduction to Meditation & Mindfulness course. You’ll be guided in simple compassionate techniques grounded in the breath, body and science.
What to expect?
During our 6 weeks together we’ll explore:
- What is meditation and mindfulness, including the benefits of a regular practice.
- How negative thoughts and emotions can wreak havoc on our nervous system and discover simple tools to help reset, rest and retrain the mind.
- Gentle movement & breath to support your mindfulness practice
- Bringing more loving presence, acceptance and compassion into your daily life so you have space to respond rather than react to challenges
- Techniques for mindful breathing, capturing the uncaught mind, loving kindness and embracing the wisdom of the heart
Meditation has quickly become one of the most powerful wellness trends, considered one of the three pillars of wellbeing – along with healthy diet & exercise. Increasing rates of anxiety, depression and chronic immune disease fuelling the new trend showing us it’s time we look a little closer at what’s going on inside our minds.
Maybe you know you need to take care of the food you eat – but what about the thoughts you focus on? Or the emotions you experience regularly? Or your relationship to stress? As a collective is it possible we’re addicted to thoughts, feelings and busyness that could be even worse for us than junk food?
Are we addicted to drama? Negativity? Judging ourself and others? Worrying? Fear? Wearing our busyness as a badge of honour?
Cultivating mindfulness and compassion in our daily lives is one of the fastest ways to transform overwhelm, anxiety and stress and build more compassion for ourselves and each other.
Compassion ~ Courage ~ Connection
“Mindfulness, which includes tenderness and kindness toward ourselves, restores dimensions of our being. These have never actually been missing, just that we have been missing them, we have been absorbed elsewhere. When your mind clarifies and opens, your heart also clarifies and opens.” ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
Practicing with the support of a group will help you meet the moments of challenge with kindness and help keep you inspired to continue your practice. In these times where it’s easy to feel lonely and isolated connecting with like minded community can be a beautiful medicine. Together we remember no matter how busy or stressful our lives may feel at times, there is a stillness and a peace that lives in each and every one of us.

“The most important thing I learned was that I can quieten my mind to meditate but also to be gentle with my thoughts. I will take away the capturing the mind technique as it works so well for me and I love it!” ~ Candy
