“Quick now, here, now, always – A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything) And all shall be well and All manner of thing shall be well.”

Once an eight-week course has been attended there is available an ongoing practice group and retreats from time to time.

Spaces are limited, so please do apply in good time if you wish to attend.

If you have friends who might be interested, and would like to ask me any questions, please do pass this on.

To find out more about Mokshala and my 8-week course, please see my bespoke page on their website: http://www.mokshalayoga.co.uk/mindfulness.html

This mindfulness course will support you to develop, through simple accessible practices, the skills to gently re-focus your attention away from unhelpful behaviours, thoughts, reactive habits, self-doubts, judgements, and inner criticisms that can so easily hamper your quality of life and well-being.

By becoming mindful, we can ease, soften, reduce our stress levels and our lives can begin to fully flourish.
