Feedback from Tessa's online courses in 2020:

'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 :)'

‘The course was really well run. It must be difficult to manage a training event on Zoom but Tessa was a superb trainer and you often forgot you were on Zoom!’

Graduate sessions / courses / retreats

During these current difficult times we are offering free online practice sessions for 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. 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.
