6-week Introduction to Mindfulness & Meditation
“We have a choice over how we perceive and react to the events in our lives”
One of the most important lessons we can learn in life is this: we do not see the world how it is. We see the world how we choose to perceive it. Every situation is neutral until we put meaning to it, either positive or negative. This means we actually have a choice over how we perceive and react to the events in our lives. Through meditation and mindfulness, we can examine these perceptions and reactions without judgement, and objectively decide if we would like to think something different.
“Make better, conscious choices that can transform your feelings and your mood”
Delivered through six, 1hr 30 minute evening sessions, each Mindfulness, Meditation & Relaxation workshop is for up to 8 people, and involves a mixture of theory and practical exercises.

Costs and what to bring
“The room the course is held in was warm, welcoming and comforting. Sarah had gone to every effort to make you feel safe!
The group itself was small and personal. I will confess I am normally better on a 1:1 basis, but Sarah and everyone else taking part on the course were so lovely, caring and supportive. All having our own battles, demons, etc. Some shared some didn’t. There was never any pressure and more importantly, nobody judged!”
“We were all there to get the same out of the course! Help, guidance, relaxation, coping mechanisms, control, etc
Sarah has a such a lovely way with people and is just so easy to talk to. It is quite clear that she is truly passionate about her work. If ever there was a follow up course or even a straight forward meditation class, I’ll be signing up for it!
Thank you for helping me see light at the end of the tunnel, Sarah.”
