“the present moment is the only time any of us have to be alive, to know anything, to perceive, to learn, to act, to change, to heal” (Jon Kabat-Zinn)

During this challenging time living more mindfully and compassionately seems more necessary than ever.  I am an experienced online facilitator and invite you to join me on the zoom platform to learn this approach to resource yourself and benefit others too…

Go Mindfully 8 week Mindfulness and Mindful Self-Compassion courses are open to all, beginners or experienced meditators. You will learn approaches that reduce stress and increase joy, are empirically supported, and will support you in finding more peace at work, at home and in your relationships. Whatever the issue that brings you here, Go Mindfully are experts in mindfulness for a lifetime, not just a one off quick fix.  We offer an on going practice community for graduates, so that once the course is over you can continue to be supported and encouraged by others – whether at monthly Top Ups, other courses or residential retreats. The strength of the graduate community represents the value and accessibility of the Go Mindfully approach.

The 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course (MBSR) is an excellent way to gain a solid foundation in mindfulness. You will learn a range of meditation and awareness practices, that can be integrated into your daily life. The course we teach follows the program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn (see clip below) as well as some aspects of the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy programme (MBCT) developed by Williams, Teasdale and Segal in the UK.   The eight week model is carefully devised and has been clinically proven to be highly effective in working with a range of physical and psychological problems.

What does it involve?

The course consists of an orientation session followed by eight weekly 2.15 hr sessions and one full day of practice, called the All Day Retreat. Each session builds on the learning of the previous week, while the all day session is a chance to deepen and consolidate your experience. Practising the meditations at home is a very important part of the course. You will be given CDs/MP3s to guide you and an accompanying workbook with information about the approach and inspirational quotes and poems.  Groups are small (16 max) and you are given plenty of opportunity to explore and reflect upon your experience. While it is possible to find condensed and teach-yourself versions of the mindfulness course we believe that the most effective and enjoyable way to learn mindfulness is over the full eight weeks in an unhurried way and in a supportive group with experienced teachers.

The course is designed for complete beginners, but those with previous meditation experience will also benefit.

Mindfulness

You hold the class in a really lovely space of learning and non-judgement. Mindfulness could be terribly earnest and you make it fun…and you’ve managed to find a way to make mindfulness part of my life, which I’ve wanted for a long time.” MBSR Graduate 2019

“I had meditated on and off for years but had not been able to sustain a regular daily practice. This course gave me the practice and support I needed and I now meditate virtually every day. This is helping me physically (I suffer with arthritis) and emotionally – in so many ways. I am so grateful to Zoe and Jaya for the gentle, empathic way they facilitated the group and led the practices. I can’t recommend them highly enough.Pauline, MBSR graduate and counsellor
