    There are many ways to feel safe and many places that we can go to where judgement doesn't exist or where at least we don't feel the strain of discrimination or separation. This comfort of acceptance, this safe place is necessary if we want to live well and be there for others. A refuge is anything or anyone who protects, cares for, or uplift us. Our refuge might be a pet, a person, a place, the sea, a good film, a warm and cosy fire, music. We can also find refuge in memories and in knowing that we are loved. In the flow of our day, we can slow down and connect with the everyday pleasant experiences of life. If we let them sink in and take time to savour them, they can become an inner resource. They get woven into the fabric of who we are. We can find shelter from the storm of life by having faith in whatever is good inside us.

    This 5 day experience will be a rich and gentle immersion into mindfulness. Participants will be able to create a personal practice that is relevant to their own lives and the demands and busyness that come with that.
    Our lives can pass us by when we get caught in our worrying, planning or doing minds. Over the week we will find realistic ways of integrating mindfulness into daily life. This doesn't necessarily mean sitting in meditation every day. Mindfulness is a way of living, a way of moving and being - a quality that we bring to our lives. It enhances, softens and helps us to face difficulty and adversity. It can lengthen and enrich the good times and make our communication with others more authentic and meaningful.
    By the end of the 5 days participants will be able to choose from a variety of mindfulness recordings and practices that I will supply and create their own personal mindfulness practice.
    There are two options for people who have to make it into work for 9 (7.30am-8.30am) and a slightly later option.(9am - 10am)
    This week long immersion can be as light or as in-depth as you want it to be. I will be giving guidance on how to bring mindfulness to the rest of your day and lots of support throughout the week. The groups are small and the setting is warm and friendly. You can book via eventbrite or contact me via Facebook or email to avoid Eventbrite fee https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/mindfulness-in-the-morning-7…

    Make time to rest. This is not self-indulgence but a powerful and necessary practice of self-compassion. Throughout this retreat day we will connect with each other in sitting, walking, moving and eating meditation. We will be nourished by deep relaxation practice. There will be opportunities to share difficulties and insights and to simply absorb the beauty, strength and stability of the mountains.
    Each practice will be an invitation to take care of our bodies and minds by listening deeply to ourselves.

    Cost: £45 (this includes lunch, tea, coffee, cake :-))
    Booking via Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/mindfulness-day-retreat-tickets-64185132459?aff=ebdssbdestsearch

    Mindfulness for Parents and Carers

    6 Week Mindful Parenting Course

    The course consists of six sessions. Each session lasts for 2 hours.
    It is aimed at parents and carers of young children and young teens. During the course we will explore many aspects of parenting and how bringing mindfulness to our roles as parents not only enhances our own well – being and lives but also those of our children. There is emerging evidence that suggests that extending mindfulness into families can support both parents and children. As a parent we have many demands and commitments often resulting in increased stress levels and scattered minds. We find ourselves managing not only our own emotions but those of our children. Mindful parenting can help reduce parents’ stress and help them to be present to emotionally charged situations so that they can respond more wisely, be emotionally available and thereby enhance the well being of their children.

    In this 6 week course you will learn how to be present for your children, how to be with difficulties without being overwhelmed and how to bring a sense of calm and ease to your own life and ultimately to your family life. We will explore practices that you can use at home with your children, designed to complement the adult practices that you will be learning each week.

    This is a truly valuable course for any parent or carer. Mindfulness can be supportive for all parents and carers, helping them to be more in touch with their children, more connected, more present and less distracted by past regrets and future anxieties.

    Cost: £175
    includes a booklet of Kids’ practices with guidance and explanations for parents as well as adult practice notes.
