Mindfulness meditation has been shown to relieve stress, pain and anxiety and is a tool which can be used by everybody in their everyday life. Over the course of this 8 weeks you will have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with different meditation techniques, consider what mindfulness is and how you can use it to help simplify your life.

The course will run over 8 Friday mornings- from Sep 20th until Nov 15th (break Oct 18th); 9.30-11am and be facilitated by Vicky Kakos.

Feedback from previous participants:
"Thank you Vicky for the amazing introduction to mindfulness. Everyday life is so much simpler. I'm much more relaxed, content and don't overthink as much, I love using it each day!"

"Fab course, life changing!"

"Due to a focus on your whole week, it's been easy to integrate mindfulness into everyday life. I am so much kinder to myself and patient overall. Thank you!"

"I am in the process of rebuilding and realigning the foundations of my life. This course has helped me obtain focus without feeling overwhelmed and move on."

"Whenever I get to a place where I lose my patience I now concentrate on my breathing and manage to handle the challenge much more effectively. Mindfulness has brought a new perspective to my life and I am much more aware and present in my day to day life."

Participants are invited to complete some home practice between sessions in order to maximise the benefits from the course.
