Events to support the development of mindfulness teachers and people interested in mindfulness and compassion-oriented approaches. These events last between a day and a week and are typically led by nationally and internationally renown speakers, as well as local mindfulness teachers with particular areas of expertise. 

Workshops will include a mixture of teaching, discussion and experiential practice and provide an opportunity to network with individuals in the field.

Masterclasses run from 9.30am to 4.30pm, unless otherwise stated. They are currently held online. We will send you a joining  link when we confirm your registration.

    Buddhist foundations
    of mindfulness

    A day of practice, teaching and discussion

    Even though many of us deliver entirely secular mindfulness programmes, many of the ideas in contemporary mindfulness-based programmes make more sense when we understand their origins and intentions. Co-author of Mindfulness: Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Psychology, Christina Feldman is one of the few people who can expertly talk about the connections between the two worlds.

    We are delighted to welcome her back to run this event for us.
