Interested in the Foundation Mindfulness Course?

I offer a multi-part Foundation Mindfulness Course. In the Foundation Course, attendees will develop their own meditation practice. This gives access to the fuller potential of mindfulness and helps create mindful employees or leaders, sending positive ripples throughout the company. Please get in touch if you would like to offer this in your organisation.  

Please note
Mindfulness is ultimately a way of being in the world, not a discreet ‘tool’ or technique, separate to life. A great way to cultivate a ‘mindful way of being’ is through a regular meditation practice over time.
