Mindfulness for Stress, Jan 24

 Registration is closed for this event

Mindfulness for Stress – 8 week course

Tuesdays 4 - 6pm from Tuesday 30th January. Taster session for the course will be held on 9th January 4.30 - 6pm so you can test the waters and see if mindfulness is for you. 

Our 8-week course (2 hours a week) is led by Ruth, our qualified mindfulness practitioner. Having come to mindfulness meditation 18 years ago to help her manage the chronic pain of inflammatory arthritis, Ruth is passionate about making mindfulness and mindful meditation accessible to anyone.

Our next course will be delivered online live via Zoom. Zoom courses are a unique opportunity to learn and connect with others. There is also an advantage to starting your meditation journey from the comfort of your own home, enabling you to fully integrate it into your routine and your daily life.

We like to get to know everyone a little bit before the course starts, so after you've registered, we will be in touch to set up a brief telephone call with you. This will allow you to ask any questions you might have, and for us both to establish whether this is the right course for you at this time.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is simply about deliberately being aware of the present moment, without judgement. Unfortunately, this is something that doesn’t come naturally to most of us. Mindfulness meditation therefore is a formal practice, to train the brain to more easily be present and not get carried away with thoughts about the past or worries about the future. It is also a valuable time of self-care.

What will I get from the course?

Mindfulness and mindful meditation has been shown to help many people better manage stress and anxiety and improve mood. However, mindfulness isn’t just about helping us through life’s troughs and challenges, it’s also a really great tool to help us get the most out of the good times too. A regular mindfulness practice can help improve focus, increase our sense of wellbeing, and help us better connect with our family and friends.

“This is an amazing course. Ruth is fantastic at supporting people to understand and undertake mindfulness. I live a more aware and happier life because of this course.”

After attending our Mindfulness courses, people report a reduction in stress levels, better sleeping patterns, reduced anxiety, as well as improved mood and overall wellbeing.

“I now see meditation as an essential tool to look after my wellbeing”

Over eight weeks, you will be taught a variety of meditations, all with the aim of helping you train your brain to be more present, strengthening your resilience and ability to manage difficulties and stresses. You’ll learn the foundational skills of mindfulness and meditation in a kind, gentle, friendly and supportive environment. You’ll be encouraged to establish a daily practice, and to integrate and apply the techniques into your life.

“mindfulness is a skill that has made such a huge difference in both my emotions and perspectives”

Sessions are two hours long, with a mix of theory, practice, discussion and enquiry. You will also have access to pre-recorded meditations to help you establish your daily practice, and a course handbook full of useful handouts. You will also be supported with your home practice with post-session emails.

We want to make the course as accessible as possible, if there’s anything you would like to talk through with us beforehand, e.g. something you’re struggling with at the moment that you’d like us to be aware of; accessibility needs such as captions/subtitles; for the slides to be sent to you beforehand – anything that might make the training run more smoothly for you – please do get in touch via 


If you can no longer attend a session, please let us know at your earliest convenience.
