We encourage you to attend this taster session prior to your mindfulness training. You attend the taster in person where you can meet your teacher/s and other potential participants. The session is mostly informative, orientating you towards what the training offers and entails. This is usually done in a group setting.
Each session lasts for around two hours and you can then assess and decide if this is the right course for you. Here's a outline on what we offer on the Taster. We may also provide you with small handout/s.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Please be aware that not all venues have designated parking so check your venue and route before your first class. There is some on street parking available for disabled users (single yellow line) but it is limited. Local buses (29,24,42) stop on Raeburn Place, about 500m from the venue. Cheyne Street's pavements are narrow, however, so its probably better coming down Dean Park Street.
The building itself is very accessible, with automatic doors to get into the venue. There is a disabled toilet and shower, which is roomy. There is also a dedicated ambulant disabled toilet.
