Mindfulness Summer School

MIndfulness Summer School

This summer, for the first time, we're offering a Mindfulness Summer School. It's a two day version of our ever popular 8 Week Mindfulness Course. 

This is an intensive course that covers all the normal material, so it's a great way for you to kickstart your practice of Mindfulness if you're new to meditation. 

If you've been on our 8 Week Mindfulness Course before, these 2 days will be a wonderful opportunity to cover the material again, with an expert teacher. Improve your understanding of the exercises, get advice that will help you deepen your practice and make sure you're on the right path.

Perhaps you've taken a break from practicing and want to use the course to get you back on your journey? Whatever your reason, we're sure that beginners and those already practicing will all benefit from attending this course. 

Mindfulness Summer School


This two day course will cover all the content of an 8 Week Mindfulness Course and will give you techniques to help you to remain calm and focused in your day to day activities. This course is ideal for people who are new to Mindfulness and wish to begin practicing.

Youth Mindfulness Summer School

Have you or your children been stressed this year?


Are the pressures of work or school getting to you or your family?


Would you like to learn how to be more calm in your daily life?


If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then maybe you would like to come along in the August holidays to one of our Mindfulness Summer School programs.


We will be running courses for children and adults over the summer, at our beautiful, relaxing centre in Canton.

We're working on the details of the program for our youth summer school and we need to hear from you so that we can get a clear idea of the number of youngsters who might be attending.

It would be helpful to know how many children you have that might want to attend and their approximate ages. This will let us work out exactly what classes we should offer. Our trainer has lots of experience delivering Mindfulness for children and will tailor the courses appropriately.

Please drop us a line at and let us know if your children would like to attend.


Youth Mindfulness Summer School

  • Aimed specifically at young people
  • The mindfulness youth trainer is trained in Dot.B curriculum and Youth Mindfulness
