OUR MINDFULNESS COURSES
People who attend this life-changing Course soon learn skills and approaches that make them calmer, better organised and more at ease with life’s challenges and opportunities, whilst instinctively making the right choices. Learn how!!
Our Mindfulness Courses are based upon the eight session MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) programme, developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre in 1979 by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn.
Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally. It brings about true happiness and will make you more aware of what you are thinking and doing, thus enabling you to make wiser choices.
In doing so, you will free yourself from resisting the present, regretting the past, and worrying about the future.
A Day of
Our unique Mindful Baking Days are a practical and fun way of learning to apply Mindfulness to all aspects of your life. You’ll pay moment by moment attention to the process and the ingredients as you learn to produce top quality artisan bread.

The Power & Peace
These popular one-day mindfulness courses give an overview of several key types of Meditation, including Mindfulness, Movement Meditation (including Tai Chi and Qigong), Chanting and Focused Meditations (Sounds, Objects, Light etc.)
We provide a Vegan lunch,including breads, prepared in our 5 star-rated kitchen, as well as written notes. At just £40.00 for the full day, you won’t find better value or content.
You will learn to practice Tai Chi as Mindful Movement that extends your meditation into daily life. This induces physical and mental relaxation, self awareness and sensitivity thus promoting spiritual awareness and harmony.
Tai Chi develops both the mind and the body and embraces a philosophy that not only promotes health but can also be applied to every facet of your life.
Mindfulness gives us the clarity to see and the awareness to accept that at any given moment we are where we are. That insight allows us to make wiser choices moment by moment.
