As a registered charity we offer a number of places on a 'pay what you can afford' basis.
Have you heard about mindfulness or meditation and want to give it try without having to commit to a long or expensive course? Have you done or started a course and would like to continue the benefit by meditating mindfully with others? Have you read a book or downloaded an app and given it a try on your own at home but don't feel like you are getting anywhere or you are not sure if you are doing it right? Are you an experienced mindful meditator of many years who knows the benefit of joining with others to deepen the experience? Are you new to the area and looking for an affordable friendly group where you can continue your practise? Are you looking to return to a meditation practise after some time away? Are you looking for a genuinely non-religious meditation practise?

A selection of reviews of our events, talks and meditations
Flo – Very organised, very accessible, very recommended. I liked the place, the teaching and the group atmosphere.
Robin – Lovely evening. Lovely meditations by Stephen. I’m looking forward to the next one.
Sophie – Thanks for today Stephen, really enjoyable!
Tom – Surprisingly great meditation session!
Heather – Good for beginners to know these things, (and experienced practitioners to re-remember) as there are many misconceptions about what mindfulness is and what is “supposed” to happen. This teacher knows what he’s talking about. Great!
Andie – Just what I needed to hear! Now I can stop being so hard on myself when my mind wonders during meditation Thank you! Will listen to this daily.
Tony – So much wisdom in such a short space of time. Well worth returning to this.
Naideen – Thank you. Must listen to this talk again. So good.
Rosie – Wonderful soft, meditative voice. Very good words, thoughts for a true mindfulness meditation all the way through. Very relaxing yet sharpening the awareness. Excellent.
Lucy – Interesting & insightful, a very clear explanation of the process & purpose of mindfulness meditation. Thank you.
