Feedback from online courses in 2020:

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed and valued the Mindful Parenting course. I have really missed it the last few Mondays".
"I have to admit I was slightly sceptical about mindfulness when I signed up, but you have totally converted me. It has been hugely beneficial to spend time focusing on me and what’s going on below the surface. I loved finding out about the scientific basis and the evidence about mindfulness actually changing the brain."
'I was sceptical at first, but I found that I actually enjoyed the zoom experience very much. I still definitely felt part of a group as you can see everyone on the screen and the breakout rooms were inspired. I felt that the course was very well structured and interesting and gave us all ample opportunity to speak, listen and be heard.'

'I really loved the opportunity to do it online. It meant I did not have to worry about travelling 1h each way, and was able to remain in a quiet familiar environment after each session. I think the zoom experience was run very well and seamlessly. I loved the breakout rooms too :)

Graduate and beginners drop in sessions / courses / retreats

During these current difficult times we are offering free online practice sessions for beginners and graduates of the 8-week course - see our Graduate Hub page for details.

Periodically we hold courses and retreats designed specifically for people who have completed the 8-week course or equivalent, either with Being Mindful or with another teacher. Beginners are welcome at Debbie's sessions beginning Mondays 12 April. This is a chance to develop and deepen your experience of mindfulness, and to re-connect with your practice. Please join our graduate mailing list to receive information on future graduate courses and retreats.
