8 Week Mindfulness Course

We have our 8 week mindfulness course starting on the 23rd May

The 8 Week Mindfulness course is a great starting point for your Mindfulness journey if you're entirely new to meditation. If you've been practicing for some time, or if you used to practice but haven't for a while,  taking the course is an excellent way to refresh your practice and improve your understanding of the material.

We recommend that people begin their practice with this course and, when you're ready, we have more advanced courses that you can take. 

We deliver the 8 Week Mindfulness course regularly throughout the year, so there's always a new course coming up. This year, we're running a Mindfulness Summer School which is a 2 day intensive course that covers the full 8 Week Course Material, ideal for those with hectic schedules. 

If you aren't able to make the scheduled class times or need further instruction on specific points, our trainers offer 1:1 Mindfulness Sessions and can deliver specific material you have missed or need help with, or the full 8 Week Mindfulness Course. 

If you have previously done the 8 Week course with either Anthony or Lorraine as the trainer, you may find it helpful to go through the course with again with another trainer.
