Classes, courses and workshops
Please note that all classes and workshops have been moved online for the foreseeable future.
Regular classes are held throughout the Vale of Glamorgan as well as courses and workshops. Classes include meditation, relaxation, mindfulness and chronic pain groups. All classes are seated for comfort and cover easy to learn techniques to still the breath, still the body and still the mind within a supportive setting.
On-going classes include beginners' mindfulness & meditation groups, intermediate & experienced meditation groups, mindfulness for children / families and Celtic Meditation.
Full 8 week mindfulness courses also run regularly.
The popular Introduction to Mindfulness courses follow the 8-week MBSR program but are less intensive for those who are keen to introduce mindfulness into their lives without the commitment of many hours practice per week. In this course you learn all the core practices and principles, with recorded materials and handouts for home practice and the guidance of an experienced mindfulness teacher. You are able to practice at your own pace as you discover how mindfulness supports your daily activities and relationships. Jon Kabat Zinn calls the practice one of 'falling awake' as we realise how to be truly present. This course supports you in developing a sustainable on-going mindfulness practice which will benefit you for years to come.
Next course starts: January 21st, 9:30 - 10:30 am,
Cost: £64 all inc.
Celtic Meditation classes run weekly for those who would like to learn meditation within a Celtic Christian context. Quiet contemplation has been at the heart of spiritual philosophy since its beginnings. Early humans would gaze into the fire as a spiritual act, and the Celtic Christians brought their reverence and quiet reflection of creation into their worship.
I also run private groups on request and am always happy to discuss running new courses and coming to your group or place of work.
Courses and workshops need to be booked in advance however drop-in and taster sessions are also available.
If you do not see what you want listed here, or have an idea how I could help you or your group, please contact me.
