“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in an eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snow flake” — Francis Bacon Sr

2 Hour Mindfulness Introduction Session

Do you find yourself living on automatic pilot most of the time? Do you sometimes wake at night going over and over the same old thought process unable to get to sleep? Or perhaps life has simply lost its edge; you feel a bit lost, but want to find that spark again. A mindfulness taster will help you to understand better how mindfulness can improve your emotional health and well-being, and increase your happiness.

Taster sessions are for anyone who feels they may want to take part in an 8 week Mindfulness course but are not sure what the commitment entails. The 2 hour session will offer an overview of mindfulness, what you can expect from the full 8 week course and give some helpful stress management strategies.

Can’t make the taster sessions? Places are now available on our upcoming 8 week course – no experience needed. Find out more here


Whether you’re brand new to Meditation or have a regular daily practice, you are welcome to join us as we create the space to meditate. This is a come-as-you-are event, no yoga pants required. We’re here to simply be still, stop and breathe.

The cost is just £20 per person. This amount is fully refunded should you book on the 8 week course. Why not bring along a friend and receive 50% off your ticket! Reserve your place now
